They say someday that things will change
And it will be perfectly okay
But the only thing that has changed
Is that I can see through the haze

Watch my friends fade to grey
These stale routines drain their lives away
Drain their lives away
Drain their lives away

And it's killing me to believe
That you're truly happy
With the choices you've made
The substances may dull the pain
But they will never wash it all away

Overworked, underpaid
These stale routines drain their lives away
Drain their lives away
Drain their lives away

The seconds pass like hours
And these hours pass like days
What do you know about being afraid?
I woke up this morning at the end of my rope
Covered in vomit from head to toe
And I can't keep living this way
Something has to change

So tell me please, were you searching for contentment?
You came home empty handed with a feeling of resentment
Smoke and mirrors, it's just an illusion
The real world's a joke and that's my conclusion
