"Life's a Garden" as written by and Ryan Donald/hackenson Zimmerman....
You feel their eyes upon you
Hear their words behind you
What do they know (what do they know)
About you

They tell you who you should be
They tell you what you should do
They'll never believe (never believe)
In you

Somebody should have told you
It never comes easy
Somebody should have told you that
There's no guarantees
And that you lose it all
When you stop dreaming
There's no way to know if you run away
(They tell you who you should be while ignoring your dreams)
There's no looking back

This is your time to stand up
This is your time to fight for
All that you know (all that you know)
And you believe
You owe it to yourself to
Find out what you're meant for
There's no way to know (no way to know)
If you run

They tell us who to be
While ignoring all our dreams
So we'll throw them away (throw them away)

Why is it they can't see
We're who we want to be
We'll throw them away (throw them away)

[Repeat: x2]
Somebody should have told you
It never comes easy
Somebody should have told you that
There's no guarantees
And that you lose it all
When you stop dreaming
There's no way to know if you run away
(They tell you who you should be while ignoring your dreams)
There's no looking back
There's no looking back

    General CommentHands down their best song, only problem is I simply hate listening to this song without the video being on.

    Love this song, best part is there's almost no screaming.

    I love music with a good, heavy dose of screaming, but there's no way I listen to these guys for the screaming in their music. I listen to It Dies Today when I want to hear screaming, but I personally think these guys are at their absolute best when their lyrics aren't screamed.

    We all kind of guessed that this song's about being your own person, not letting others tell you what to do, and stand up for what you believe in. Wow who would have guessed.

    I hate when I have to sit and think about what a song's about. And I don't get most songs, haha...

    But I love the screaming too. This song has an awesome message

    "Why can't they see
    That we'll never be who they want us to be
    We'll never be
    We have too many dreams
    Too many dreams to just throw them away "

    yeah!
    great song!

    General CommentGreat song and even better message. I think its about being your own person because life is so short(Garden representing the life and death cycle). Good message on never to give up on what you believe in too. I hope to hear more from Greeley Estates!
