I hope I live to see the day
That the world forgives me
You can't pretend that you're OK
With an open bottle of pills and fame

The people that can't stand you
Only win if you hate them too
I'm the king of mystery
You're Up against me

Up against me tearing harder from inside the crowd
Up against me now

I hope I live before I die
No giving up before I try

    General CommentGreat song. Pretty Straight forward. No matter how hard you may try there is always going to be someone there that is going to attempt to bring you down. And its not always another person that can bring you down, sometimes it may be your own self. And i couldn't be said better than by Josh.
