It's a sunny day on the west coast,
And currently my shades are drawn, my TV's on.
I haven't left this place for days,
It's funny how things change.

I take what I get, and I throw it away and I break it.
I had everything and you took it from me and I hate it.
My thoughts run fast through me like a lethal injection.
Like a lethal injection

Why does the world as I know it
Keep on bringing me down?
Do my best to hide it,
But it keeps bringing me down.
No matter how high that I try to climb I'll be pulled back down again.
Why does the world, as I know it
Keep on bringing me down
Keep on bringing me down
Keep on bringing me down

It's 5PM and I'm still locked in,
and my guitar's tuned wrong, my voice is gone,
I haven't seen sunlight in days,
It's funny how things change.

I take what I get, and I throw it away and I break it.
I had everything and you took it from me and I hate it.
My thoughts run fast through me like a lethal injection.
Like a lethal injection.

Why does the world as I know it, keep on bringing me down?
Do my best to hide it, but it keeps bringing me down.
No matter how high that I try to climb I'll be pulled back down again.
Why does the world, as I know it
Keep on bringing me down
Keep on bringing me down
Keep on bringing me down.

Why does the world as I know it, keep on bringing me down?
Do my best to hide it, but it keeps bringing me down.
No matter how high that I try to climb I'll be pulled back down again.
Why does the world, as I know it
Keep on bringing me down
Keep on bringing me down
Keep on bringing me down.

    General CommentPretty obvious meaning...

    "It surprised me that I'm still locked in,
    and my guitar's tuned wrong,
    My voice is gone,
    I haven't seen sunlight in days"
    Love his voice in this. :)

    General CommentI hear "It's 5PM and I'm still locked in" instead of "It surprised me that I'm still locked in" and
    "No matter how high that I try to climb" instead of "No matter how hard I try to climb"
