Won't face this day and I won't care now,
the sunrise promises nothing new

Everyday is the same
when looking straight ahead
Caught in the safety of routine
I lose myself again
And if only for a moment do I
truly feel this way,
then suddenly it all becomes
something of worth to me

Won't face this day and I won't care now,
the sunrise promises nothing new
And here I will stay with four walls round
my heart in a room that won't betray

Now that I've gone too far,
this escape has caught up with me
Everyone's gone
They all realized that I stopped caring
so long ago that today
was only taken for granted
And tomorrow's just one more
that I believe I deserve

Won't face this day and I won't care now,
the sunrise promises nothing new
And here I will stay with four walls round
my heart in a room that won't betray

Spent too many hours in this room,
leaving the world outside my door
In failed attempts to forget about,
being frustrated with myself

Won't face this day and I won't care now,
the sunrise promises nothing new

One last time
I will watch the sun
go down from this window
And I won't wait for a better day
to walk from
all it ever was that I
had given up on this road
One last step
and I will soon be gone

    General CommentI love this song. In my comic, it's my character Fagen's theme song. It's so beautiful. But the the chorus lyrics are "Won't face this day, and I won't care now. The sunrise promises nothing new. And here I will stay with four walls round, my heart in a room that won't betray." Sorry, I'm listening to it right now.

    General Commenti'm assuming it's about suicide because, what else could it be? anyway. i'd never heard name taken before, but i like the guy's voice and love the lyrics to this. depressing things are so nice.

    General CommentYeah, all of their stuff is great. The CD is raw. If you want to buy it you should go to InterPunk.com. The CD only has 6 songs on it, but its worth it.
