Your life it ends with a crash
It's over now way too fast

You never knew that it was so short

You're digging deep inside yourself
You never knew your own wealth

You're digging deep to find some pity

Fake all your promises
Forget what your conscience says
Just another number in a long line
Of no one

Just pretending that we're ending
Hating what we are
So frustrated suffocated
How did we get this far?

Your life begins way too fast
You can never change your past
Living life in your yesterday

You're digging deep inside yourself
You never knew your own wealth

You're digging deep to find some pity

Fake all your promises
Forget what your conscience says
Just another number in a long line
Of no one

Are we really that far that we can't even see
All the truth from the lies
In this man-made disease
That is killing us and is filling us
Willing us to believe

Looking up and breaking down
I never know what's going down

Looking deep inside myself
I've never known anything else

    General CommentThis is a great song, and one of my favourites on the album, the song's meaning itself is pretty much in the lyrics.

    General CommentIt means that no one is really who they present themselves to be and how the world around us seems to use trickery to get us to conform with the mainstream.

    General Commenti agree with you saivorsorrow but there is other meaning in the song

    "You're digging deep inside yourself
    You never knew your own wealth"
    meaning you look inside yourself to try to find out who you realy are and what you find is more valuable than what you present to everybody else

    "You life begins way too fast
    You can never change your past
    Living life in your yesterday"
    meaning whether your relize it or not you sitt in your own head constantly reliving the past and wondering "what if?" this also goes along with the song "one more day."

    i love mushroomhead because of the litteral meanings of their songs they dont sit there and try to hide what they mean because they dont want to offend people. i agree with them 100% tell it how it is or dont tell it at all

    Yeah, Mushroomhead likes to make their songs a bit literal.. I like that because they give you something solid to think about instead of trying to decipher their lyrics.
