Subject 'A' wants to throw it all away
He's sick of all the pain
He wants to turn it into rage
Look how the barrel tastes
Before it's too late

I just want to get through the day

We're all just shades of gray
In a long and frantic race
To catch a dying day

I just want to get through the day

For one second I'll slit your throat
Spill blood across the floor
Put an end to this game

They thought you would have learned by now
But you're still questioning
God, would this be a better place without me
So much is lost within each second
So they say you became another waste of space
So you learn how the barrel tastes
Gray
And the world will watch as he blows his head off

I just want to get through the day

We're all just shades of gray
In a long and frantic race
To catch a dying day

I just want to get through the day

For one second I'll slit your throat
Spill blood across the floor
Put an end to this game

Take the time to smell while the rose is red
Before they're all dried up and dead
It's never too late, it's never too late
Remember the blood running through your veins

Take the time to smell while the rose is red
Before they're all dried up and dead
It's never too late, it's never too late
Remember the blood running through your veins

I just want to get through the day

We're all just shades of gray
In a long and frantic race
To catch a dying day

I just want to get through the day

For one second I'll slit your throat
Spill blood across the floor
Put an end to this game

    General CommentCan you say suicide? Great song, message about pondering suicide and maybe homicidal rage.

    General Commentthis kinda seems like this might be a hate-filled response to former label mates, So They Say's hit single "Antidote for Irony"


    perhaps a beef is afoot...?
