Put it down touch it from the atmosphere
making all of my decisions based on fear
I never even cared about what I could be
declared on by the war on authority
I doubt you need cause I'm a bad seed
running on adrenaline and licking on greed
I'm tired of being I'm sick of my seeing
looking for the end or playing so that I can finally come clean

Cause I remember one time
something to live for, now so long ago
faces always are changing
lies in disguise for all the things we know
one time something to live for
somehow I've lost my way
those times have pissed away now
echo in my darkest days

Walking every day thinking that I know best
wearing my contempt like a bullet-proof vest
on my way gonna make it all mine
roll it in the gutter just to kill some time
but I was dead wrong and now it's all gone
I won't become the fool that I've abused for so long
the lines played out I've gotta get back
chase away the negative and throw away the useless track

Cause I remember one time
something to live for, now so long ago
faces always are changing
lies in disguise for all the things we know
one time something to live for
somehow I've lost my way
those times have pissed away now
echo in my darkest days

i've seen things I hope I never see again
(There's another place to fall)
I don't want to have to bury any more friends
(There's another friend to call)
Living on the edge of a sign of our times
(There's a world beyond yourself)
Dying in the wreckage we create with our crimes
(There are those who tried to help)

one time
something to live for, now so long ago
faces always are changing
lies in disguise for all the things we know
one time something to live for
somehow I've lost my way
those times have pissed away now
echo in my darkest days

    General Comment"One Time, Something to live for, Not So Long Ago,
    Faces Always Are Changing,
    Lines In Disguise For All The Things We Know"

    I think this part means that, finally somebody coming out of a huge slump from maybe an addiction of some sort or depression, having something to live for, and whenever they try to get back on their feet they keep getting knocked back down, by different people (Faces Always Are Changing), And finding out bad secrets about every one around them (Lies in disguise for all the things we know)

    And yeah thats what i think =|

    General Commentwell the lyrics are way off
    it should be


    pullin down toxins from the atmosphere
    making all of my decisons based on fear
    i never gave a fuck about what i could be
    declared a private war on authority
    i got what you need cause im a bad seed
    running on adrenaline and living off greed
    im tired of being im sick of my scene
    looking for the end or a place i can finally come clean

    Cause I remember one time
    something to live for, now so long ago
    faces always are changing
    lies in disguise for all the things we know
    one time something to live for
    somehow I've lost my way
    those times have pissed away now
    echo in my darkest days

    Walking every day thinking that I know best
    wearing my contempt like a bullet-proof vest
    on my way gonna make on mine
    rollin in the gutter just to kill some time
    but I was dead wrong and now it's all gone
    I won't become the fool that I've abused for so long
    the lines played out I've gotta get back
    chase away the negative and throw away the useless track

    i've seen things I hope I never see again
    (There's another place to fall)
    I don't want to have to bury any more friends
    (There's another friend to call)
    Living on the edge of a sign of our times
    (There's a world beyond yourself)
    Dying in the wreckage we create with our crimes
    (There are those who tried to help)

    as for the meaing
    i agree with Don 44
    i think its about someone whos trying to come out of an addiction

    be it depression or drugs
    but thats just my two cents.

    General Comment5 comments?? hell... this band is so underrated. They are fucking awesome! I love this song. I can kinda relate to it too... it seems like forever ago when I thought I had something to live for.

    And the lyrics are wrong. It's actually
    "those times have pissed away now
    ECHO IN my darkest days"

    and it's not "make it all the mindless as the face of fear" it's
    "making all of my decisions based on fear"

    Russ Rankin is really sexy :)
