"Faceless" as written by and Blaze Bayley....
Can you spend your life, a man that no-one ever hates?
Can you just fit in with everything, another face?
Never challenging or disturbing the status quo
You try to fit in and you just keep your status low

If you think you're beaten
You will be beaten down
If you think you're losing
You have lost it all
If you think you're beaten
You will be beaten down
Why do you try to be a man
A man that no-one hates

You just accept that where you are is where you'll always be
Always being, there's a madness of its own you see
In quiet desperation you live, no-one ever knows
The suffering you bear so you can be a tortured soul

If you think you're beaten
You will be beaten down
If you think you're losing
You have lost it all
If you think you're beaten
You will be beaten down
Why do you try to be a man
A man that no-one hates

Oh oh oh oh
No-one knows your name
A faceless man
Just yourself to blame

Oh oh oh oh
You're suffering again
A faceless man
A man that no-one hates

When you are not there you wonder what it is they say
They despise your unobtrusive humble, subtle ways
From contempt to loathing into hatred it's too late
By trying to fit in you failed to be a man that no-one hates

If you think you're beaten
You will be beaten down
If you think you're losing
You have lost it all
If you think you're beaten
You will be beaten down
Why do you try to be a man
A man that no-one hates

Oh oh oh oh
No-one knows your name
A faceless man
Just yourself to blame
Oh oh oh oh
You're suffering again
A faceless man
A man that no-one hates

Oh oh oh oh
No-one knows your name
A faceless man
Just yourself to blame
Oh oh oh oh
You're suffering again
A faceless man
A man that no-one hates

    Song MeaningA song about a man who only want's to get through life. Avoiding confrontation he is no-one and knows nobody. If he was to die nobody would care as he is easily replaced. This man suffers as he is alone in the world never to make a stand and never to be remembered for anything. He is just another man in the cycle of life and in the system
