I can't stand the pressure,
I don't like where this is going.
I need to find a way out.
I'm sick of this lifesytle,
The cracks will soon be showing,
I'm already worn out.

My time's been spent--I must relent
And move on--Time will show
I know what I know,
It meant something but that was years ago.

Happy birthday--no one cares,
As long as I'm still breathing,
No one notices inside.
I'm breaking, I'm falling,
My dreams are colliding,
With reality.

Things won't be the way they were.

    General Comment"As long as I'm still breathing, No one notices inside. I'm breaking, I'm falling, My dreams are colliding with reality." that right there makes me fall in love with this song. i totally feel what it's talking about right there. the song is really meaningful, or i think so anyways. a birthday is normally seen as a time to celebrate, but in this case it was just another magnification of the hell this guy was going through in his life. i think everyone has moments in their life like that. where you should be happy, everyone thinks you are and have no reason not to be, but for some reason it's the worst time of your life. i dunno, but that's what i get out of this song. i kinda wish more people knew about it and the band, i'm the only one i know of that knows of them. it's sad that some of the best bands never get appreciated like they should. i guess that's part of art, pouring your heart out regardless of whether or not you ever make and impact on the world.... but all i can say is after hearing this song "things wont be the way they were".
