I'd head out tonight, I think I should,
but it takes twice as long to look half as good,
I've quit my bad habits but I still don't feel that great.

When my eyes are open, my brain is sore,
It's the morning after with no night before
I can't believe it's 8am again

I believe they can see beyond my smile,
they have always had the style.
not your common rank and file.

And I feel, that what I feel I can't conceal
it's like an ever spinning wheel,
that won't ever let me heal.

Truth, it's plain to see
I'm not the man I used to be
The mirror lies, cause it's not me
So take this song, my apology.

I'm reading more but remember less,
am I getting patient, or couldn't care less,
intolerance - a thing I just can't stand

So am I something or am I fake,
I prefer a quiet chat not a mass debate,
maybe that will take me to the bridge

There's a hole in my life that can't be filled,
a voice inside that won't be still,
there's no magic little pill.

and what it means, is that the noise will never cease,
only steadily increase,
and I can never find my peace.

Truth, it's plain to see
I'm not the man I used to be
The mirror lies, cause it's not me
Take this song, my apology.

blue, red and white, you're the blue, red and white,
you can console yourself you once put up a fight.
you may dream on the left, but you still live on the right
just keep on breathing, just keep believing.

Truth, it's plain to see
We're not the country we used to be
The mirror lies, and so does the sun
Cause it's not us, we're still free.
