He steps upon the stage
Waiting, the band is living for the star
Another evenings rage
Lord of all the vermin he surveys

It's the ordinary life, betrayed

A self imposed disgrace
The harbinger of murder to the status quo
With a smirk upon his face
Believing every sermon he conveys

It's the ordinary life, betrayed

And it brings to life within us all
Feelings he betrays

And he somehow shows
That he somehow knows

That we all belong here
We can be strong here
Far from all the promises they made

We can be right here
And we shall unite here
It's not an adolescent crusade

It's the ordinary life, betrayed

He feels it now, escape
The desperate sense of solitude, he's broken through
And the crowd is fully swayed
They sing along with every song he plays

It's the ordinary life, betrayed

When it brings to life within us all
The feelings he betrays

And he somehow shows
That he somehow knows

That we all belong here
We can be strong here
Far from all the promises they made

We can be right here
We shall unite here
It's not an adolescent crusade (No!)

We all belong here
We can be strong here
Far from all the promises they made

We can be right here
So stand up tonight
And show them that we won't be afraid (No!)

Breathe the ordinary life, betrayed
