Goodbye
We're facing the same day
over and over
You're repeating yourself
and it's boring me to tears
I would just like to ask
are you owned by your fears?
What happened to the world that moved so fast?
The people in it had to abandon their pasts
just to keep up with the progress
You're hopeless, you lost this
I'm just being honest
All of you deserve this shallow judgment

There's nowhere to go
but up from here (but up from here)
There's nowhere to go
but up from here (up from here)

Take your time
Don't bother me with shallow alibis
It's your life and your decision
to do nothing with it
so admit it now
admit it now

There's nowhere to go
but up from here (but up from here)
There's nowhere to go
but up from here


Don't bother me with shallow alibis
And filthy lies
Looking at you I can see right through your eyes
(there's no, there's no,
there's no where left to go) x 2

Goodbye (both)
We're facing the same day
over and over

(I've escaped this feeling,
its back and I know that it's not right
oh, I know that it's not right) x 2

There's nowhere to go
but up from here
When there's nowhere to go
but up from here

There's nowhere to go
but up from here
There's nowhere to go
but up from here

    General CommentIt's saying that he's tired of the same old routine, he's most likely depressed to the point where anything that happened would be a good thing, so it would be the "Nowhere to go but up from here," 'here' being the emotional point he's at.

    General CommentWell before I start, I'd point out that this has the exact same music as their previous song "He may be your boyfriend but you're still a.." which is quite ironic considering the context of the song (hopefully deliberate ;) )

    To me this seems about being stuck in a typical social clique or group or maybe even a band, full of people who don't have the motivation to do anything with their lives, people who just drift through life with the same old routine but never really get anywhere at the end of it,
    And it's about being sick of this, and saying "Goodbye" to it/them all.
    "Are you owned by your fears" - fears of progression, achievement, doing something new and original
    "You all deserve this shallow judgement" - You're not trying, you deserve to be shunned for lack of effort

    "Don't bother me with shallow alibis and filthy lies" - For me, it reminds me of being in a band where some people aren't bothering to put any effort in, (why make up excuses to why you couldn't turn up for a show or rehearsal etc, it's getting old) but it could apply to any number of situations with a group in life.

    "There's nowhere to go
    but up from here" - Pretty self explanatory, but yeah, sick of doing the same old thing, need to progress, the only way is up :)
