There isn't destiny
The way things go, I don't think so
The changes that alter us
Are a product of our own volition

And we become what we hate

It's not hard to figure out
that you're scared when you act so much better
You're holding onto something we can't have
But hands still circle, you're still getting old

And we become what we hate

Do you believe in the lies that shape your world
Do you believe in your own fictitious immortality
Do you believe in the lies that shape your world
Do you believe in your own fictitious immortality

The world won't end while you walk the earth
and when you realize that your life don't matter
You'll turn to something to help you forget
That you're only young once, old forever

    General CommentI think this song is about getting old. I've out grown many of their teenage agnst songs, although I still listen to them with fond memories of the past. However, this song means more to me now that ever at 28. Any other ideas?

    General CommentYeah, the song is probably encouraging kids to do stuff before they get old, because if they get old withoput doing significant thoings, their life will turn meaningless and there won't be any turning back.
