Car lights flash my eyes
Blinded, hypnotized
Lord knows I'm livin' and I'm never comin' back now
One generation dies, next one wins the prize
And that's the big surprise, there's demise in all of their lies
It's never too late to realize

That's just the way things are
That's just the way it is now

I walk through the cemetery, it's all empty now
I put a rose on the grave of a fallen hero
And I look out into the wild, all I see is emptiness, so much loneliness
I just want forgiveness

When dreams fade away it won't be long
End up singing the same old song
What went right, what went wrong
Bad times here, good times gone
First rule, they always sell
Second rule, never tell
Third rule, straight to hell
White collar criminals livin' in jail

It's all that they gave
Sold your soul to get paid
But you end up in an early grave
Your own neck you can't save
It's a letter that you can't send
It's a wound that will never mend
Pain level peaks at ten
Some stand out, some stand in
