We're caught in a cross roads
me and my friends
just trying to figure out
now what, to do with ourselves
working my day job
I feel I'm selling out
steppin up to take my role as a
consumer and nothing else.

I can see the window closing
on all of my dreams
should I stand and watch them all fade out
except normality?

I…
I don't care about getting by
No…
No I don't care about getting

Wasting I can't be found again
Wasting I know I'll see you someday
Wasting I know be found again
Wasting I know I'll see you someday..

Now sit there and judge me
for the things that I say
but you don't understand pain
and I pity you anyway
but for those of you who hear me
we are strong
so come and follow me

Some where else
Wasting I can't be found again
Wasting I know I'll see you someday
Wasting I know be found again
Wasting I know
Some where else

I do not care about getting by....
I do not care about getting by…

Break me down...
Bring me down...
Will you save us?
Will you save us?
Break!
I
I do not care, I do not care…
About getting by

    General CommentI can relate to this song in many ways.

    It's like his prayer almost that he will get by. Maybe it's his wishful thinking. In the end of the song, it's like he doesn't care anymore.

    General CommentI personally think this is a song about not wanting to just become another face in the crowd. "I do not care about getting by" is saying I dont care about living life just to pay the next bill, instead he wants to follow his dreams and he doesnt care if that gets him by or not.

    General CommentYeah, this song is pretty much about wanting to achieve greatness; heading out to achieve your dream and if it's any indication I think the lines "Wasting I can't be found again
    Wasting I know I'll see you someday
    Wasting I know be found again
    Wasting I know I'll see you someday.. " just mean that he's gotta go on to achieve his dreams so he can stop wasting away and maybe he's leaving someone he loves behind just to do this and he knows that they'll meet again someday, although he can't be found again as who he is now...

    So true! nobody really understands ehat emotional pain feels lik untill it has happened to them so nobody can really sit and judge you on what you say.

    Amazing lyrics!
