Realized I can never win
Sometimes feel like I have failed
Inside where do I begin
My mind is laughing at me

Tell me why am I to blame
Aren't we supposed to be the same
That's why I will never change
This thing that's burning in me

I am the one who chose my path
I am the one who couldn't last
I feel the life pulled from me
I feel the anger changing me

Sometimes I can never tell
If I've got something after me
That's why I just beg and plead
For this curse to leave me

Tell me why am I to blame
Aren't we supposed to be the same
That's why I will never change
This thing that's burning in me

I am the one who chose my path
I am the one who couldn't last
I feel the life pulled from me
I feel the anger changing me

Betrayed
I feel so, enslaved
I really tried
I did my time
I did my time
I did my time
I did my time
I did my time

I am the one who chose my path
I am the one who couldn't last
I feel the life pulled from me
I feel the anger changing me

Oh god the anger's changing me

Oh god the anger's changing me

    General Commentits a cool song, I wanna hear a better version too, and some of the words are wrong:
    "I feel you hate the change in me" =="I feel the anger changing me"
    and then at the end he says "Oh god the angers changing me" twice, not what it says

    General CommentI agree, so many people putting up their thoughts on the band. If you do not like the band, or the song, why waste energy on commenting? Hard to shuffle through and find decent interpretations when there are so many arguments on whether the band is good or not.

    Anyway, I think this is about trying and continuing to fail, or not measuring up to what others want to see you as, or even not measuring up to what you want others to see you as. "I did my time" meaning I have tried, I have failed, or even I have been successful at times, and am still not where I need to be.

    "Realized I can never win
    Sometimes feel like I have failed
    Inside where do I begin
    My mind is laughing at me"

    Trying, and not making it, you just cannot win, and you feel defeated. Then you try yet again to do better, and ask yourself "where do I start?" and your mind laughs at you, like there is too much to sift through, or maybe mocking you because you simply are in over your head. Something like that.

    I think many people can be changed or driven by their anger, sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worst, you have to be careful what you do with it, as with any emotion.

    General Commentthe lyrics posted by colossus are almost correct, except for one word. before the choruses, it should be 'tame' instead of 'change'. otherwise great job, you have exactly what i transcribed, except for i put (its burning in me) on the third lines of the last two choruses.
