The TV set blazes the things that we see
In the world today,
But there’s no peace.
Consuming our lives away,
We pretend that everything’s OK.
What you achieve in this life is all you’ll ever be.
Who’s important in the world is unimportant to me.
Lives are being shaped without us knowing that we’re free;
Set me free.
In my place, you threw me down
And left me here to pass the time alone.
The radio keeps playing all the songs that make me ill.
You can’t save me
From the bottomless hole.
The poisoned seeds you sow only blister my soul.
What you want
Isn’t always what you get
And your self-assurance
Is everything that I regret;
In the way you put an end to everything we wish for.
A second chance is coming around the corner fast
And this is your time to make amends, but
The one you couldn’t see
Is all you’ll ever be.
I know that I’ve shown how to waste an opportunity.
For now I guess I’ll find myself a new one.
The clouds up high in the sky
Paint a picture of what’s happening to me;
It’s all gone grey and I can’t see.
I know, this time, that I’ve shown how to waste an opportunity
For now, but don’t go and waste it on their apathy.
Start today in every word,
We aren’t the same but listen as you would
And I won’t let you down.
