I'm a soldier of circumstance
Who always needs a second chance
Trying to prove myself to the world
Over and over and over and over again
Man, I'm tired of getting burned
I guess it's time that I finally learned
To never need anything
That means nothing to me...

(chorus)
Slow down this train cause I want to get off
Slow down the pain I need to loosen life's grip
I need to loosen up...

Now I seem to recognize
My past, the tears I used to cry
Never again will I roll over and die
Cause my life made me who I am
And I finally understand
That there's beauty in chaos
Who cares about the meaning of life...

(chorus)

And I'm not going to watch life pass me by
Motivation is only one reason why
This world can't take me
So watch me while I try
Yeah, I'm going to try
And I'm not gonna wait around for someone to save me… yeah...

(solo)
(chorus)

Slow down this train cause I want to get off
Slow down this pain cause I need to get off...
And I'm not going to let life pass me by
Motivation is only one reason why
This world cant take me
So watch me while I try!
