We can make believe we're happy and free
It's automatic when the money is in our hands
People always try to look beyond their own lives
But I know that it won't last
Pride comes before our fellow man

It's a perfect day for us to make a change
Forget about the watered down mistakes that we have made
There's a way to clear our tainted names
Just look ahead and don't be scared
We've got so many choices to make

Take a look around (just look around)
Where is your hope found? (where is it found)
Is it the ones you love or just your bank account?
We all want to be (we want to be) the people we should never be
We're buying things we just don't need

It's a perfect day for us to make a change
Forget about the watered down mistakes that we have made
There's a way to clear our tainted names
Just look ahead and don't be scared
We've got so many choices to make

Paying for things we don't need to impress those we don't know
Indebted to our own accessories
We hide behind our own lives with our fake dreams
It just can't be the only thing we have worth living for
(We will live. We will die, not by the sword, but by our pride.
We are stripped. We are torn. Is my own wealth worth living for?)

It's a perfect day for us to make a change
Forget about the watered down mistakes that we have made
Morning breaks into a brand new day
So look ahead and don't be scared
We've got so many choices to make
