I'm searching for the words
To try to find a way
To let you in on what's happening

Without question, the worst impression
That I could've entertained
Deceitful, how we dance in
These circles and if you listen
Close enough

Doesn't it feel
Like a broken record slicing through the skin
The sound
Has been overplayed and overrated

But the dance sure takes a long time, don't it?
We go round and round
Forget the heart, the light, the scene, the stage, the sound you know we're all on
Display
I guess the powers that be will see it's time to make a decision
And if you listen close enough

Doesn't it feel
Like a broken record slicing through the skin
The sound
Has been overplayed and overrated
Don't I exist
To satisfy you
Or satisfy nothing
I'm right here
And I'm hoping to be something that means something to somebody at all

But it's the same
old
song
and dance
And it's the same
Re-
sults

It's the same old song, same old song, same old song
Doesn't it feel
Like a broken record, a broken record
I exist
To satisfy you
Or satisfy nothing
Fear steers progress
But right now
I'm hoping to be something that means something to somebody at all

But it's the same
old
song

    General CommentI believe this ones about the music industry. Probably inspired by Sinch's problems with Roadrunner. And it's pretty damn true... major labels all just want a band to make hit singles (Nickelback, Puddle of Mudd). It's all the same old song, and unique bands like Sinch get shafted instead of promoted.
