I'd be a lying man if I said that, "Everything was fine,"
But sometimes lying's really the truth in disguise.
I've come to find my heart isn't right with my soul
Two different loves with a similar glow

I'm two steps away from my subtle smooth escape.
And opportunity is knocking on my door
I call in sick to day
I regret all my mistakes
And opportunity is knocking on my door

I’m a tyrant you’re a crook
And we're all just selfish for a line with a hook
And there’s nothing in this ghost town but the cries and the souls that we've found

I'm two steps away from my subtle smooth escape.
And opportunity is knocking on my door
I call in sick to day
I regret all my mistakes
And opportunity is knocking on my door
I'm two steps away from my subtle smooth escape.
And opportunity is knocking on my door
I call in sick to day
I regret all my mistakes
And opportunity is knocking on my door

What a mess I've become.
I loathe the guy who I was.
It`s not just me; it`s my whole generation,
Generation,
Generation

I’ve come to find my heart isn't right
I’ve come to find my heart isn't right with my soul.
With my soul,
With my soul,
With my soul

I'm two steps away from my subtle smooth escape.
And opportunity is knocking on my door
I call in sick to day
I regret all my mistakes
And opportunity is knocking on my door
And opportunity is knocking on my door
And opportunity is knocking on my door

    General CommentThis song is amazing.
    Their still good without Sonny.
    I wasn't expecting them to be any good, after he left.

    General CommentWhat I get from this is:

    I'm gonna call in sick today

    It sounds like Giant to me, but it could be Tyrant.
    We're all just SUCKERS for a line with a hook.

    The cries OF the souls that we've found.

    What a mess I've become I've LOST TRACK OF WHO I WAS

    And I'm thinking maybe it's 'My heart is alright with my soul'

    But that's just what I got out of this.

    FFTL is the best band in the world.

    General CommentThe title is a play on the line "I once was lost but now am found" from this:
