I will not deceive myself this time.
I, with cheating another, I have cheated myself.
I feel so incited that it's come down to this.
This is how I repair the hurt that I have caused.

I offer my hand as an equal, as a friend.
I offer my hand as an equal, as a friend.

Tonight it is a reunion.
We have forgotten everyday that we spent when we dismissed each other in claiming that we shared in separate victories.
Tonight it's all that I have. It's all I give and it is all that I share.
Because one way or another we all know that our days are new.
Our days are new and I offer my hand

As. An. Equal. As a friend. I offer my hand as an equal, as a friend.

I hope that people see what this all means to me.
Confidence in my actions with positive regard for others.
And I know that respect paves a clear path for successful valor and comaradery.
It's a vision of progression. It's a vision.

Please don't shoot the piano player, he's doing the best he can.
Please don't shoot the piano player, he's doing the best he can.
Let us live by one rule, respect us - we'll respect you.

    General CommentMan, the ska bit makes me wanna dance every time.

    It sounds like he's cheated someone, regretted it, and wants the wipe the slate clean and begin again.

    General CommentIt's actually supposed to be:

    Tonight, it is a reunion
    Have we forgotten everyday that we shared,
    That we dismissed each other
    In claiming that we shared in separate victories?
    Tonight is all that we got
    It's all we will give
    It's all that we'll face
    Because one way or another
    We all know that our days are new
    Our days are new
    And as I offer my hand...
