We are the ones taking all the pain
Falling on our faces
They don't care anyway
Anyway, now
You're the one that makes me feel like I'm alive
You're the one that pushes me all the time
All the time, now

We are hard at play
Always praised to do what they say
Calling me deranged
Feeling power, I must take its place some way

Never gonna run away
Seeking out the path
But the pain always gets in the way
Slowly watch me die
I'm insane, so dangerous
Don't you dare get in my way
Throwing in the towel
Got me strained, so betrayed
Get the fuck out of my way
Looking at my thoughts, I take my time
Pounding all these spikes in my veins

We are the ones reaching out in vain
Trying to solve our problems
They won't go away, go away now
You're the one that makes me feel like I'm alive
You're the one that pushes me all the time
All the time, now

We are hard at play
Always praised to do what they say
Calling me deranged
Feeling power, I must take its place some way

Never gonna run away
Seeking out my path
But the pain always gets in the way
Slowly watch me die
I'm insane, so dangerous
Don't you dare get in my way
Throwing in the towel
Got me strained, so betrayed
Get the fuck out of my way
Looking at my thoughts, I take my time
Pounding all these spikes in my veins

Pounding all these spikes in my veins
Pounding all these spikes in my veins
Pounding all these spikes in my veins

Never gonna run away
Seeking out my path
But the pain always gets in the way
Slowly watch me die
I'm insane, so dangerous
Don’t you dare get in my way
Throwing in the towel
Got me strained, so betrayed
Get the fuck out of my way
Looking at my thoughts, I take my time
Pounding all these spikes in my veins

Pounding all these spikes in my veins
Pounding all these spikes in my veins
Pounding all these spikes in my veins
Pounding all these spikes in my veins
Pounding all these spikes in my veins
Looking at my thoughts, I take my time
Pounding all these spikes in my veins

    Song MeaningThis song is about the media ignoring the actions of the ever growing police and surveillance state in the U.S. while cramming pop culture nonsense into peoples minds.

    The mainstream media is ignoring the problem and sensationalizing pop stars while the government is "hard at play" taking away the rights of the people all the while the media is also telling the people to listen to the government's every wish "always praised to do what they say" and calling anyone who disagrees"deranged" now would also be a good time for me to point out that the site has the lyrics wrong. (as of April 24, 2014 anyway)

    Great song, great meaning. Here's hoping the site fixes the lyrics.
