can life fight through this static and silence with daylight?
am i wrong or sometimes it feels like competition has conquered everything and left nothing but marketplaces in its trail?
am i wrong?
does this mean anything to you?
"competition, commodities!"
try to saturate every market with demonstrations of imagery, some low end bass, turn the gain up, we'll convince them of our honesty and we'll take the stage
merch don't sell itself you know
well i want you to know that you settle with so much and you've got the nerve to think i'm out of touch with kids in scenese where we played when you'd give anything to get your way?
so wake up for work, put friendships in writing, don't settle for trust
don't think an inch past your world, you're going to get what you deservce
never wanted to let anyone get in the way
but i wonder if when your time is through if you'll think of all the irony in 'keeping it real' and 'don't forget your roots'
you sang along but you 'll never understand
you play a new town, wear a new face, any way to get close
it's just another way you give, give everything
for me that's not what success is
i try to level
i try to do the right thing
you dismiss all you tolerate, just demographic, just your scenery
i try to level
i try to do the right thing
not substance for abuse, how we feel is not for taking
not substance for abuse
these songs aren't stones for your stepping.....can't suffer any more abuse at the hands of you
