Falling, I'm falling

Have you ever walked through a room
But it was more like the room passed around you
Like there was a leash around your neck that pulled you through

Have you ever been at someplace
Recognizing everybody's face
Until you realized that there was no one there you knew
Well I know

Some days, my soul's confined and out of mind
Sleep forever
Some days, I'm so outshined and out of time
Have you ever

Falling, I'm falling

Have you ever buried your face in your hands
Cause no one around you understands
Or has the slightest idea what it is that makes you be

Have you ever felt like there was more
Like someone else was keeping score
And what could make you whole was simply out of reach
Well I know

Someday I'll try again and not pretend
This time forever
Someday I'll get it straight but not today
Have you ever

Falling, I'm falling

Some days, my soul's confined and out of mind
Sleep forever
Some days, my darkest friend is me again
Have you ever
Someday I'll try again and not pretend
This time forever
Someday I'll get it straight but not today
Have you ever

When the truth walks away
Everybody stays
Cause the truth about the world is that crime does pay

So if you walk away
Who is gonna stay
Cause I'd like to think the world is a better place

When the truth walks away
Everybody stays
Cause the truth about the world is that crime does pay

So if you walk away
Who is gonna stay
Cause I'd like to make the world be a better place

When the truth walks away
Everybody stays
Cause the truth about the world is that crime does pay

So if you walk away
Who is gonna stay
Cause I'd like to think the world is a better place
I'd like to leave the world as a better place
I'd like to think the world

    General CommentExcellent song. One of my faves, although I don't think anything will beat Dirty Magic. That's gotta be my all time fave Offspring song, and I'm a pretty hardcore fan.

    General CommentThis song is called "Have You Ever". It's one of my favorite songs by them. I think this song is about people not understanding, and feeling lonely. That's the feeling I get whenever I hear this song.

    General CommentThe first part of the song makes me believe that he's like very drunk or maybe even stoned. Dunno..I kinda get exact feeling, when I'm drunk. But then the song developes into something..kinda like kmb13 said, I guess? Well wtw..when i was younger I liked that song very much, I've even listened offspring back then. But now I haven't heard them for ages. Americana was good, though *as far as I remember*.
