I've been mislead I thought that you and I were the same But if there's any chance we could live our lives I'll take it. We share, way less than I thought Because one word doesn't make us family You gotta keep in mind That friends, music and ideals Are way more fullfilling Than being part of a scene And I'm done boing nice I'm done taking your shit And I'm done not being myself.

I woke up today, at peace with everything I said, I did, I lied about lately Cause in the process, I burned away my past mistakes. I woke up today, at peace with everything I said, I did, I lied about lately I burned away my past mistakes. Exhausted by all the busy lives I live Bogged down in all the sideroads that I take I'm causing more harm than I thought And there's no other choice than having it dealt with For all the things that I have started, I swear that I'll be fine Even if I know I screw up sometimes, I'll be going on just fine. I woke up today, at peace with everything I said, I did, I lied about lately Cause in the process, I burned away my past mistakes. I'm not a monster, I'm not a saint I just can't waste my days away But in the night I'll be there shivering, I'll be there watching your image crumbling And I'll be fine when I wake up. Exhausted Exhausted Exhausted, by all the busy lives I live But I can't think about anything more than « deal with it » For all the shit that I have started, I'm not sure they'll be fine But I don't have that many options except going on just fine. I'm not a monster, I'm not a saint I just can't waste my days away But in the night I'll be there shivering, I'll be there watching your image crumbling And I'll be fine when I wake up.

They killed me once this day They killed the hope temporarily They killed me once this day They killed the hope temporarily At the highest, It all fell down What we built and what we'd lived, vanished in a split second And I couldn't get the thing It was leading me, they were not alive in this How foolish to take this for granted And I lied awake, Unable to feel a thing I smoked the tears away Then hoping the doubt was still alive Buried in something And I went through the five stage I have cursed them, I trusted them I tried to make them join again After quite a while, not believing The depression lasted longer I caught a glimpse of my future When did my life has become my past I'm not ready to let that rest When did my life has become my past I'm not ready to let that rest They killed me once this day They killed the hope temporarily They killed me once this day They killed the hope temporarily

Who am I ? What's the difference in the middle of the crowd ? Is there even a slight reason to feel this superiority ? What does stick out from everyone ? But what is everyone ? Is there anything special about... The man that I've become Have I really turned into what I pictured of myself as I was growing up ? I haven't read a proper book, watched a real movie in years Sometimes I fear the messy half is killing the rest of my time ! Cause this life, I live today Doesn't allow me, Doesn't allow me Cause this life, I live today Doesn't allow to be the person I wanted to be What would the kid that I was Think about what he's become I'm pretty sure he'd be pleased with that turn of events I just need to reconciliate his dreams with a much more surprising reality I'm sure I get the best from myself Cause this life, I live today Doesn't allow me, Doesn't allow me Cause this life, I live today Doesn't allow to be the person I wanted to be And I'm stuck with an image of myself Expired for many years And I'm stuck with an image of myself Expired for many years I want it buried away. Stuck with an image of myself Expired for many years I want it buried away.

We are a way, we are a feeling.  We are a change of things through the leaving.  We are a way, we are a feeling.  We are a change of things through the leaving.  We might not get that far, we might not change the world, but acting different, thinking different, it might be a part of it. We're not wearing any Che sweaters, we're not making any propaganda whatsoever and I'd almost say that we don't care.  We choose a way, We'll never make a living  We choose a life. That's what I believe in now.  We are a way, we are a feeling.  We are a change of things through the leaving.  We are a way, we are a feeling.  We are a change of things through the leaving.  Sharing with everyone that there really is another way might make a bigger change than your endless fights between left and right.  Read different my friend. Watch different my friend. Buy different my friend. Eat different my friend. Learn different my friend. Act different my friend. Live different my friend. Think.

There are so many things that I believe in And I'm not disappointed With the way I've changed my life To get close to each of my beliefs. I'm getting sick to owe explanations For the things I chose I'm getting sick to be the target Of the same old bad jokes I'm definitely sick to waste my time When I talk about it Sometimes I wanna scream Leave me alone But how far am I from selfishness from cowardness and all ? I'm far from being on a fucking crusade I'm trying to change me before the world But taking these stands brought responsabilities

We were invicible We were invicible, we were alive The start of fucking nothing We were invicible, we were alive The start of fucking nothing How many times have I played memories in my head ? And told them around ? Past good times are hard to chase away, and not to worship I cannot refrain, from setlling a frame of reference for what's on it's way. Wanna be back to where I started ? Wanna be back to where I stayed ? Wanna be back to where I started ? Wanna be back to where I stayed ? We don't know what we're gonna be Wanna be back to where I started ? Wanna be back to where I lost my way ? We don't know what we're gonna be Let's fight for, Let's fight for today No use in chasing yesterday We'll fight for, we'll fight for a new day No comparing anything We were invicible, we were alive The start of fucking nothing We were invicible, we were alive The start of fucking nothing I won't be back to where I started I won't be back to where I stayed I won't be back to where I started I won't be back to when I lost my way I know there is more I could be I won't be back to when I was blank before life got on my way And I will get along ok with every highlights chasing months of dryspell I know there is more I could be ! Let's fight for, Let's fight for today No use in chasing yesterday We'll fight for, we'll fight for a new day No comparing anything We were invicible, we were alive The start of fucking nothing We were invicible, we were alive The start of fucking nothing

Is that what gaining age's about I see them all falling down And waving a burnt white flag Giving up on so much Giving on their dream On what they believe's worth fighting for I see my world crumbling around I see betrayal, fear and sadness Covering those who stood as the pillars of my well-being And even if the inside is safe for now The threat is getting closer Because we all get older And our boxes of shit pile up Because we all get older I swear my friend, we'll all try to get better I was damn sure I was ok My silly optimism is Cracking from the outside I fear it will get to me Through you it will get to me It will make me fall with everyone Because we all get older And our boxes of shit pile up Because we all get older I swear my friend, we'll all try to get better Because we all get older And our boxes of shit pile up Because we all get older I swear my friend, we'll all try to get better

I don't know if you still care enough To listen to me wheep If you still care enough To let me take a shot at Coming back to the way it used to be Coming back to when I mattered for something else I'm coming back I'm coming back I said it, I said it Now I know It drove me away from more than Life standards career plans or flat thinking It drove me away from so many of you And I finally get how badly I missed you. I'm coming back I'm coming back I'm coming back I said it, I said it I'm coming back

Everybody slowly sinking into sleep Everybody's dead wasted and they're barely moving But we're still awake We've got more to say The words stumble on the party, to reach the sense. Cause there is more to this, more than them Than every drunk stroy they will ever tell There is more to this, more than them More than destruction, we aim for completion. I'm not sure they know where they're going And I don't have that many clues about where I'm heading We won't really sleep, If we're really dead We'll sleep when there is nothing left to understand. Cause there is more to this, more than them Than every drunk stroy they will ever tell There is more to this, more than them More than destruction, we aim for completion. We will always talk ourselves to sleep And after 3 am. We'll talk ourselves to sleep to figure out Who the hell we really are. (We'll Always) We'll talk ourselves to sleep to figure out Who the hell we really are. (We'll Always) We'll talk ourselves to sleep to figure out Who the hell we really are. (We'll Always) Who the hell we really are. Who we are.

One time's enough, it's killing you now One time's enough, it's dragging us down No need to ruin your life, there's so much more Nothing to care about, it's so far gone One time's enough, it's far too late now. We all shall fall. One time's enough, it's all over now One time's enough, you're haunting this town No need to ruin our lives, there's so much more Nothing to cry about, you're so far gone One time's enough, it's far too late now We all shall fall. Keep fighting

Born among flowers, Live in the dirt, we chase the good, try to live for the better.  Live for the better.  Walking away from what was planned at first, the edge of understanding is getting closer.  Is getting closer.  You may have felt what we believe in, but now fun's long gone only remain the smell, the loss, the waiting, the uncertainty. "But where are you fucking gone?"  I know you get it, I know you support it, but I still fear that the planned collapse of it all is just the only thing to keep disappointment gone. Born among flowers, Live in the dirt, we chase the good, try to live for the better.  Live for the better.  Walking away from what was planned at first, the edge of understanding is getting closer.  Is getting closer.
