Because of you I'll be working until I'm ninety.
Re-think those words.
Re-think your ways.
How can you live with that on your head?
The wind is at our heels and razors at our throats.
You're running on borrowed time and that time is running out.

Remember the way you started - That was a loan.
Wind still at our heels and razors at our throats.
I can live with myself.
It's not so bad.
I can look at myself in the mirror.

Did you really expect me to save you all?
Blame the way that you were raised and say it was the only way.
The rat race is never ending.
Watch your back and watch your spending.
Crash and burn into the ground.
I thought you were supposed to save us all.

Singing. Dancing.
You're killing my ambition.
Save it.
For the judge and jury.

Why can't you understand me - Do I stutter?
You're taking my heart out of it.
Don't you get it?
Fairy tales.
Cosmetic nation.

Big houses and paid vacation.
Gamble it all today and say it was the only way.
Snort civilians.
Hit the sun.
I hope you can keep it.

    General CommentPop music and it's effect on America.
    A whole generation of cosmetic fakes.
    'You're taking my heart out of it', to me says that Guy feels like he doesn't want to do this anymore if he will be compared/associated with this shit.
    'Singing, Dancing, you're killing my ambition'...

    General CommentI think this has to do with accepting the tiring routine of making a living to perpetuate a sistem that doesn´t give a fuck about you.
