Yes, no, yes, no, maybe, no
All you're going to hear in this world that rocks and rolls
Somthing mistaken, a dream taken from magazine fiction
I fear and so I turn
Wake up now listen, nothing's like it should be
Well, now I've got a taste, well now I've got a part of the friction
(Something I)Something I missed out on
Something I must have missed out on
Something I must have missed out on

As we fall astray
Trying to live through your games
This ride takes another turn
You can turn the bluest skies to grey

It's a new day, no much to talk about
Must be walking over a dead sea by now
It's a new day, wipe a small business out
They fall to faint and dry the paint
Died
Watching still we find TV open
Middle-aged skin growing older
Becoming aware
Listen to the ones who make sense of the freak train
Dive then let me drive
Try to make them challenge you
Lights are falling
Death of a day, deader than day
Victory? Victory? Victory?
Death of a dead day
I fear and so I turn
I'm out here, one little piece of meat
Well now I've got a taste
It was nothing like I imagined it to be
We've decayed with fear, we can't see past the beer

As we fall astray
Trying to live through your games
This ride takes another turn
You say that you are here to stay
You can turn the bluest skies to grey

Well, if it isn't another vulturistc man
Feasting on the carrion
Through all sincerity and serenity and
Goodwill
Is lost in a spin with you
When all you seem to do is count on
Others
Getting less than you
Thats your aim, Thats your game

You are all the same (x6)

Playing the game, Playing the game
Playing your games!

So far you've taken away so we fall
See through the mountain of lies as we fall

Something I missed out on
Something I must have missed out on
Something I must have missed out on

As we fall astray
Trying to live through your games
This ride takes another turn
You can turn the bluest skies to grey

    General CommentThis new album is absolutley amazing, and this is my fave track off it. I think this is kind of similar to Pussyfoot. About how all people do is copy others - such as they see the celebrities doing in the 'magazines', and how Mikee has 'missed out on this', on purpose.

    General CommentI agree with LVH. I think this song seems to be about how people see celebs doing something on TV or read about them in magazines and it makes them want to do the same. I also think maybe this has to do with reality television. How they slate people in these rare circumstances to find out the "reality" of life.

    General CommentPossibly THE best Sikth song ever, while, surprisingly, not one of their heaviest. I even learned how to webrip just because i was so obsessed woth this song back in 2005 when it was a demo called 'death of a dead day'. And it was absolutely the best song i heard that entire year. It has everything, and is simply an incredible piece of music. 10 stars out of 5. Unbelievable. WHY DID BOTH SINGERS LEAVE??? NOOOOOO!!!!

    General Comment10 years later, this song is still brilliant.

    and not sayin', just sayin', it's early 2017 and these lyrics couldn't be more important.
