We Are the Tigers the Musical - The Breakdown Lyrics


RILEY: (spoken)
Now, if you're all done yelling at each other,
Can we please finally get some work done?
We have a bright future here,
Can't we just put the past behind us and move on?

(sung)
We are the soul of the school
The pride in the name
The heart and the flame
Our words are pure inspiration
Years of creation changing the nation

KATE: (spoken)
Riley, maybe we should skip the pep rally

RILEY: (spoken)
Why? I'm the best I've ever been.
This was the only thing I - we - wanted

(sung)
D-E-F-E-N-S-E
Tigers go for victory
Stomp, stomp, clap, spin
Tigers fight and Tigers win
Regionals is almost here
So stop complaining
Do the cheer

KATE: (spoken)
We're not complaining. We're dealing with the death of our friends

RILEY:
No more time gets wasted
If you're gonna have a dream, you have to chase it
Or just as you lose steam, they go and take it
R.I.P. the 'worst team ever'

CAIRO: (spoken)
Riley--

RILEY:
Do you want to settle
Do you want to sit back
And watch life go by
Do you want to settle
Or do you want to fly

This time, I will be stronger
This time, I last longer
This time, I won't waste it
I won't waste it
I won't waste it
Captain of the team, would you please come to our party?
Oh my god your hair looks great
You turned out so well

CAIRO: (spoken)
Riley, can I have the key?

RILEY: (spoken)
No, Cai, you can't

CAIRO: (spoken)
We all want to go to Regionals, just give me the key-

RILEY:
Who stayed on track when the world was on attack
And when girls don't have your back
You have to c-c-c-c-cut 'em

It was me who decided
We could be so much more
Than they could see
If I didn't do it
What, what, what, what, what would we have done?
We would be no one

Please forgive me for doing what's best for you
Riley is a wallflower

Make this easier
