I tried to be a man
I tried to play the part
Thinking growing up was reaching out and thinking on our own
I've learned a little bit and figured out the truth
that everyone just wants to tell you what to do
I've covered all the facts and stood them in a row
and after shooting all the ducks down I deciphered out the code
That it is just a trick and we are all pawns while the king and queen push us along
I know that the whole world is spinning around
I've taken all I can
I've taken a bit more
I've been dealt a deck of cards to find, the game is just a bore
Oledged my allegiance well to a cause I cannot mend
then to realize that this fight was all pretend
Who knew that the whole world is spinning around?
Though they have different faces, it's all the same
while we are left to play their game
And what do I have left but a thin pile of sand that has broken out the hourglass
and jumped into my hand,
a simple grain of salt alone in outer space
revolving around a start to spawn a race.

    General Commentwoop first comment. i reckon its about how the singer believes he has been through it all and lived a full life, untill he finally realised that his life made no difference to "the machine" that is modern society. hehehe...
