I have that sick feeling,
I have an empty heart again,
And the world just stumbles along,
I can't resist, but I can't give in now,
So far, so way off course,
Hope for the best, expect the worst,
The big picture's invalid now,
Because it's the little things that hurt now,

Wanting to believe you tried,
Does it matter if we close our eyes,
Sugar-coat, disguise the taste,
More like rust than a golden age,
Pointing fingers, twisting knives,
Hellbent on that dollar sign,
Still behind, can't keep the pace,
Just loose your mind in the rat race,

Eyes fixed on merchandise,
They're getting in line for the sale,
Those sheep that meat market,
It makes no sense, and I feel like hell,
Just keep them pacified,
Dangling carrots in my face,
But I don't want a consolation prize,
For a game I didn't even want to play,

Wanting to believe you tried,
Does it matter if we close our eyes,
Sugar-coat, disguise the taste,
More like rust than a golden age,
Pointing fingers, twisting knives,
Hellbent on that dollar sign,
Still behind, can't keep the pace,
Just loose your mind in the rat race,
