Sometimes makin' songs for living
feels like living to make songs

and sometimes I get an uneasy feeling
that I'm doing something wrong
Cuz nothing really feels like home
and I just want to be alone

Calculate the hours till the pow'r in the well goes dry

I'm watching as the stage goes black
How long till we all go back
to being nothing at all
nothing but a spark in someone's eye

Am I givin' all that I can give
Am I earning the right to live
By looking in the mirror
there's nothing more sincere
than a selfish heart

And sometimes I got nothing to say
I think breaking a heart
could maybe be the start of some new page

And sometimes I play a couple war games
using live ammunition
so I can fix what I'm missing
most of my songs are true
Most of my songs are due
to some broken people
so I could write a single

I'm watching as the stage goes black
How long till we all go back
to being nothing at all
nothing but a spark in someone's eye

Am I givin' all that I can give
Am I earning the right to live
By looking in the mirror
there's nothing more sincere
than a selfish heart

I'm watching as the stage goes black
How long till we all go back
to being nothing at all
nothing but a spark in someone's eye

Am I givin' all that I can give
Am I earning the right to live
By looking in the mirror
there's nothing more sincere
than a selfish heart

there's nothing more sincere
than a empty heart

there's nothing more sincere
than who we are
than who we are
