This is what comes from the best intentions we have,
they get lost with the rest; soon forgotten.
And the money we spend is to make amends
for the time that we never...

To make amends for the times that we've never given.

We all feel real inside our skin.
With selfish hearts that hide our sin.
But everyone that runs a race can't win.
We all feel real inside our skin.

If God is good, then what are we?
There is no plant without a seed.
When morning comes, will we believe?
All that was lost can be retrieved.

You say you're good, then let me see.
A faith is dead without the deed.
How can we fall, if we believe?
Let's be who we were meant to be.

We all feel real inside our skin.
With selfish hearts that hide our sin.
But no one really knows our deepest secrets...

We will separate ourselves from everyone that we know.
We can't allow a single doubt or weakness to show.
And just one more day without the shame and I can move on.
I'll be happier, I'll be happier...

We will separate ourselves from everyone that we know.
(We say we're so misunderstood)
We can't allow a single doubt or weakness to show.
(but I know we don't do the things we should)
And just one more day without the shame and I can move on.
(So long to what I thought I was...)
I'll be happier, happier when I've given up.

Wisdom light my way into the dark.
Your words, the melody that carries me.
We can't make a change 'til we know who we are.
What burns? The fire refining me.

Wisdom light my way into the dark.
(The melody that carries me)
We can't make a change 'til we know who we are.
(The fire refining me, refining me)

    General CommentI have absolutely no clue what they are screaming. I can only translate a few lines of it and the rest I don't know. So if anyone would like to interpret please do so.

    My InterpretationMost of that sounds spot on.. here's a few correction from my interpretation of it, along with the screaming...

    But everyone that hides away can't win
    We all feel real inside your skin

    Should be:
    But everyone that runs a race can't win
    We all feel real inside our skin

    Screaming part:
    _______________________________________
    If God is good, then what are we?
    There is no plant without a seed
    When morning comes, will we believe?
    All that was lost can be retrieved

    You say you're good, then let me see
    A faith is dead without the deed
    How can we fall, if we believe?
    Let's be who we were meant to be
    __________________________________

    But no one really knows how deep the secrets...
    Should be:
    But no one really knows our deepest secrets

    We can't allow a single doubt that we've yet to show
    Should be:
    We can't allow a single doubt or weakness to show

    (We act so misunderstood)
    Should be:
    (We say we're so misunderstood)

    (So long to what I thought my words were...)
    Should be:
    (So long to what I thought I was)

    And here's the last part:
    ___________________________________
    Wisdom light my way into the dark
    Your words, the melody that carries me
    We can't make a change 'til we know who we are
    What burns? The fire refining me

    Wisdom light my way into the dark.
    (The melody that carries me)
    We can't make a change 'til we know who we are
    (The fire refining me, refining me)

    General CommentI think the line "The fire refining me, refining me" may refer to Zechariah 13:9 -

    I will bring that group through the fire
    and make them pure.
    I will refine them like silver
    and purify them like gold.
    They will call on my name,
    and I will answer them.
    I will say, ‘These are my people,’
    and they will say, ‘The Lord is our God.’”

    General Comment'We all feel real inside our skin
    With selfish hearts that hide our sin
    But everyone that runs the race can't win'

    I love these three lines.
