When you've wandered around so long
you can't come back down.
Now your forgetting how to keep
your feet on the ground.
Tried to fade away but
the only truth I found,
I see through my crossed eyes;
these hands are bound.

Don't you see, it's all me,
creating the fact and the friction
the human condition
against your tradition.
Here's my prediction:
I believe what's in front of me.
My premonition:
you're just a little naive.
Let go of what you think you know,
if you could only see, my prediction:
I believe what's in front of me
and you can't fake that kind of reality.

TWenty years of working hard
just to lose it all.
Who'd have known I could get this far
but still feel so small?

Pardon my mistakes,
the ones you never saw.
Admit you missed it all;
you made me fall.

Don't you see, it's all me,
creating the fact and the friction
the human condition
against your tradition.
Here's my prediction:
I believe what's in front of me.
My premonition:
you're just a little naive.
Let go of what you think you know,
if you could only see, my prediction:
I believe what's in front of me
and you can't fake that kind of reality.

Don't you see, it's all me,
Here's my prediction:
I believe what's in front of me.
My premonition:
you're just a little naive.
Let go of what you think you know,
if you could only see, my prediction:
I believe what's in front of me
and you can't fake that kind of reality.

    General CommentThe Nearly Deads are such an underrated band, they are so good!!! and Theresa Jeane has an amazing voice :) some day they will be more famous than paramore...
    Ok I'd share the meaning of this song:
    TND: Fact and Friction started with an idea on the piano. The entire band are big believers in the Law of Attaction and that we are all in control of our own destiny. That’s where the idea for the song came from. We are all in control of our own lives and our own circumstances. We bring everything into our lives, even the negativity or ‘friction’ we may experience. I think I had kind of an epiphany; all of a sudden this inspiration hit me and I had to write a song about that realization. The realization that I was the one in control. “Don’t you see? It’s all me. Creating the fact and the friction.”
