You tell me you like the taste
You just need an excuse
You tell me it calms your nerves
You just think it looks cool
You tell me you want to be different
You just change the same
You tell me it's only natural
You just need the proof
Did you fucking get it?

It's in my eyes
And it doesnt look that way to me
In my eyes

You tell me that nothing matters
You're just fucking scared
You tell me that I'm better
You just hate yourself
You tell me that you like her
You just wish you did
You tell me that I make no difference
At least I'm fucking trying
What the fuck have you done?

It's in my eyes
And it doesn't look that way to me

    General CommentI thing song is one of Rages best. You don't get Zac much more angry or self-righteous than this.
    The songs about wannabes and confused try hards whether they be drug users ("like the taste"), conforming non-conformers ("want to be different") or apathetic people who've lost the dream of change ("make no difference").

    Zac you tell 'em...

    General Commentyeah mycatharis you realize that the whole album is covers. if you couldnt tell that by the different styles, then youre pretty unobservant. yeah this is like one of the songs that defined the hardcore punk movement.
