Every morning, every day,
I am hopin' for a chance to get away
In the evening, every night,
I am dreamin' of a chance to make it right
Every chance that I get I am placin' a bet on the sun in the sky

And if you take this away from me
I'll never forgive you can't you see
Our life will be broken
Our hate will be unspoken

I can feel those metal chains
And they're holding back the hope that keeps me sane
I can fight back, yes I can
'Cos I'm strong enough to show you I'm a man
And I hate what you do, when your poison seeps through and you're laughin' at me

And if you take this away from me
I'll never forgive you can't you see
Our life will be broken
Our hate will be unspoken

Every chance that I get I am placin' a bet on the sun in the sky as it sets out of sight
And I hate what you do when your poison seeps through and you're laughing at me

And if you take this away from me
I'll never forgive you can't you see
Our life will be broken
Our hate will be unspoken

    General CommentTo me, this song is all about other people in your life who are trying to bring you or others down, for whatever reason.

    It's no secret everyone, but human beings treat others like crap everyday. I see it all the time, and it hurts me. What hurts me even more is when I catch myself doing it, and I realize the damage I've inflicted on someone. I try my best to treat people the way they want to be treated, not the way the deserve to be treated.

    When I listen to this song, it reminds me of that personal vow of mine. Rivers tells us in this song exactly that-- He's not going to let that person/those people take him down to their level. He's going to be there and he's going to be strong, and if that conviction were to ever be taken from him, he would delve into the same hate he wishes man to be free of.

    My OpinionThis is definitely one of the best songs on the album. I was expecting to be a little disappointed with Hurley, like everybody else, but I'm actually very pleased. It's no Pinkerton, they probably won't ever have another album like that again, but it's enough, and it's good.

    I read this review on the album which basically sums up my own thoughts on it, if you want to read it: bit.ly/…
