I'm giving you my life one week at a time. You want the whole thing? You want it right now? You're pushing me over that edge. It's that forced smile. It's you choking down any meaning. Am I just like you? Am I just like you? I am, as long as I can't find the need to feel alive that's supposed to burn inside. I guess it has escaped me again. It suffocated and died. This constant complaining proved to be pointless in the end; that came as no surprise. Such futile attempts at feigned sincerity, these lies have filled this room with the awkward smiles and disappointed eyes that were all trying desperately to hide.

    Sorry if I may have quoted a lot here, but if I'm to understand this song, I'd start here. It seems like he's describing work and everyday life. It's boring and superficial, and people complain pointlessly and smile with nothing on their mind and in the end we're all victims to all these lies that entangle our lives. I can really identify with what he means with "disappointed eyes". It's weird when you can tell someone from their eyes, but their expressions and words don't necessarily match.
