i see the tables turning
they turn with speed
i watch the fire burning
burning to the sea
i heard a holy story
i laughed out loud
a man who chases the wind
never should be proud
they can always find a way
to pull you down
make you feel so small invisible
another sent to take the final part of me
give me my lesson for today, (i can't hear you)
fill me with hope and quickly betray
when i am barely breathing
they come for me
i wish i never saw them
walk all over me
they can always find a way to pull you down
make you feel so small invisible
another sent to take the final part of me
give me my lesson for today, (i can't hear you)
fill me with hope and quickly betray
it's my fault
i should have never trusted
it never fails
to bring me down
so hear me out
always busted
you got yours
guess i got mine
your high score
my waste of time
give me my lesson for today, (i can't hear you)
fill me with hope and quickly betray
give me my lesson for today, (i can't hear you)
fill me with hope and quickly betray

    General Commenti think this song is about people in your life that come and make you feel like shit. and they usually come when you're @ your worst.. so you look even worse. something?

    General CommentI was thinking, maybe it has something to do with Donnie Darko.. The movie's supposed to take place in 1988.. and the song even has some lyrical resemblence to that song, Mad World, from that movie..

    Probably not the case, but.. a funny thougt..

    General Commentthis reminds me alot about catholic highschool and when I went, having being the only one there who dressed different/liked different things quickly labeled as a threat and an outsider to the school and its community....sometimes they would try to help me get my grades up then shit on me making me want to just do worse and get out of the school... IDK just my .02
