Every day seems the same to me
I sit around and think about how alone I feel
then I wind up rather enjoying loneliness because it's the comfort of being sad-
sometimes it feels so right
and sometimes I'd like to be around no one for ten straight years
but I know this feeling can't bring me places
and I know I'm losing lots of ground
but to keep up means to get up and why does it have to be
the world keeps on changing while I just stay the same?
I feel like being down doesn't mean enough to anyone anymore
and I guess the world has made emotion obsolete
and I don't think I feel the same 'cause after all
who says what happy really means?
Tonight I will redefine everything and tomorrow I will start in on my better days
and so each their own definition of happiness
but no one ever reaches it so I don't think I'll breathe that way
but happiness is when there's nowhere left to go
because in that state of mind there is no state of self
so how was I supposed to know?

    General CommentThis song is so great. Every word is so true. I feel like it is just what I want to say except someone else wrote it. I love that about STD, and a lot of music actually.
    "and I guess the world has made emotion obsolete"... it doesn't get any more real than that.

    General Comment I have never connected with a song as much as I do with this one. For some reason being alone is comforting at times. "sometimes I'd like to be around no one for ten straight years"..I couldn't put it any better.

    General Commentyea, this song hits home.
    "the world keeps on changing while I just stay the same?"
    thats just how i feel, i feel no matter what im still sad and everyone around me is doing things and being happy and junk.and im just standing still watching it all go by.... and no matter how hard i try i cant get into the swing of things again.
    "who says what happy really means?"
    for real...
    i can't seem to remember what it feels like to be happy anymore.

    General Commentsongs like this songs is why i love saves the day. sometimes im just like "whaaa? how did they get in my head?"
    this song is it. sometimes im just so sad, and i feel so alone and i wish i could get back into the way of things, but i cant and in a way i feel like i could be alone for ten years straight.
    i have three words.... "fuck yes chris"

    General Commentobsolete, you suck. so what if they get popular, if they do go mainstream, more power to them. that just means that they won't have to worry about money as much and then can spend even MORE time writing amazing songs like this one.
