We chase misprinted lies
We face the path of time
And yet, I fight
And yet, I fight
This battle all alone
No one to cry to
No place to call home
Oooh...oooh...
Oooh...oooh...
My gift of self is raped
My privacy is raked
And yet, I find
And yet, I find
Repeating in my head
If I can't be my own
I'd feel better dead
Oooh...oooh...
Oooh...oooh...

    General CommentSo what are the lyrics Aaron actually sings??

    I hear:

    We chase this fading light
    We chase the tracks of time
    And yet I fight (2x)
    This battle all alone
    No one to cry to
    No place to call home
    Ooohhhh....Ooohhh
    Ooohhhh....Ooohhh
    My gift of self is raped
    My fallucy is great
    And yet I find, Yet I find
    Repeating in my head
    If I can be my own
    I'd feel better dead
    Ooohhh......Ooohhh
    Ooohhh......Ooohhh
