a man takes his seat by himself he stares at his plat life has taken a bite i want to cry or just cry out wanting to speak but i dont even try so we go on our way to wind down the days what is it that makes life this way? i will leave you alone as i leave alone what could have been had i not kept to my own? there is a woman i see every week on teh street i think of the life we could have if id speak we dont say a word lovers who will never meet i have to live out my life in my sleep walking around in a cage every day what is it that makes life this way? im just a simple man whos lost his way hoping that ill find real life one day shrinking through life never making a sound who will hear us when we fall to the ground? a shile at last as my head hits the floor i dont have to live like this anymore.

    Lyric CorrectionMan takes a seat by himself.
    Stares at a plate.
    Life has taken a bite.
    I wanna growl or maybe just cry.
    Wanna speak but I don't even try.

    So we go on mundane.
    What makes things this way?
    I'll leave you alone as you left me.
    But you're right I should have kept to my own.

    There's a woman I see every week.
    I think of life if I could only speak.
    We don't say a word.
    Lovers never meet.
    I have to live in my sleep.

    So we go on through our days.
    What makes us live this way?
    Someday it was you left me
    claiming I should be on my own.

    What could've been (x4)

    Working in a cage every day
    What makes us live this way?
    I'm just a simple man who has lost his way.
    hoping I'll get the wild life some day.

    (just like ?) (just like ?)
    It's ugly.

    Working in a cage every day
    What makes us live this way?
    I'm just a grown man who has lost his way.
    Hoping I'll get a real life one day.

    One day.
    What could have been. (x4)

    Shrinking through life never making a sound.
    Who will hear us when we hit the ground?
    I feel so bad you hit the floor.
    Now I don't wanna live this live no more.
