I need the time to realize everything I've just seen
'cause I've been living in a good dream, for far too long
I need the time to realize everything was make believe
Dammit I was so naive
You were never who you seemed to be

But all I ask, is for my fair chance
Of making my way to the top of this industry
And with my own two hands, not a second glance
I'll make the impossible a possibility

So don't fuck this whole thing up for me, I thought we were a team
But now you're kicking the legs right out from under my dream
Don't fuck this whole thing up for me, you said that we were a team
But now you're kicking the legs right out from under my dreams

    General CommentI'm gonna cry if they don't make a clean version if this is on their new album. They're my favorite band and the fact that I have to have "clean" lyrics on my iPod sucks when they don't have clean versions...

    Other than that... I like it a lot:) and I'm way too excited for their album that doesn't even have a release date yet...

    General Commentthe song is about the fans, actually. when people say "no, i will not vote for you on MTV", "no, i will not vote for you online at so-and-so.com", or calling them sell outs and not having faith in them. (which very well incorporates with the tour theme) as you can see with the whole team thing and then us knocking down his dreams.

    General Commenti think this song is amazing
    i can not wait until it is done
    i just hope their record label won't get all pissed and not let them record it or something.

    obviously like he said its about record labels and how shitty they are.
