Life is a horizontal fall You gotta grab the fun and take it all It's a real deal, baby, aint no reversal They say it's free - how much is free? You can have it all. Live it up, fuck it up

Talk in riddles, hide in shadows Full of shit you hypocrite A furtive glance and awkward silence What's it all about? They lie to you, they lie to me, they lie to everyone. Creeping round in the dead of night Whispered words, all cloak and dagger Hands held tightly over mouths What's it all about?

My heart it turns around everytime i’t’s true The heat that chases me, I can’t survive You’re the sun that hits the ground on which I try to run, I can’t believe what I believe My heart it turns around everytime it’s true The road I’m running down, I meet my faith in you I try to reach out but you’re gone and everyday is just the same I realise Walk, talk, inside I die Walk, talk, these feelings I can’t hide Walk, talk, everytime I try. I can’t deny

How do I react, my senses overload, I lose my place, lose my mind And light and day they seem to fade, everything else just fades away I don’t know whatever happened to this thing called my life And I intensify my loss of mind, my fate is gone, it’s no longer mine I’m alive, built to win Can’t go back, devestation's not far away, light and day seem to fade But if I self believe built to win. All I know, I’m built to win

Trail of tears I cannot mend, never took time to comprehend Like a scar you run deep, you agitate Cannot reverse this growing trend, don't wanna be here 'til the end I shout my worst to an empty room, my senses are numb Taste the pain - all that you've given me Taste the pain - all that is left for me Taste the pain - all that you've given me Taste the pain - all that is left Trail of tears I cannot mend, all the years that meet no end A growing fear, the only way, my senses are clear There's nothing

I can't wait any longer, i won't be put on hold Change that red light to green, let's go go go I want it yesterday. I will not lose a minute and you won't take from me I call it, I do it, me me me

Is there no difference?, Are we no different? I'm more different than you Are we any different? What makes us who we are? See everything, we buy everything, this microcosm of life We look inside, all we show is the outside Psychosis of what we should be, self analytical, do we care? Do we give a fuck? 'cos I know I don't!!
8.
Don't wanna be in someone's shadow, be inspired not too shallow Be someone make it happen. This is me I won't slow down, reality will come around, I'm gonna be there Here to stay, save your heartache for another day, one more second I want to stay Don't race too quick and you'll go faster, at the time seemed to last, never quit never get me down In my life I always reckoned, I won't quit, one last second. you're my inspiration

Start to tell a story but she took it away, no one can watch now Extract of my life was shot in a movie but now it's lifted out I have 4 minutes 20 seconds of memory no longer mine how can I expect you to understand....she screamed at me Taken away Reminisce My bleeding heart, no longer loved or cared, my bleeding heart

Keep it going, under pressure, stop to think and it's gone Get it on, find the pleasure, stop to think, all goes wrong Shut up, shut up, every time I fuck it up You'll be there to stand and stare oh yeah Keep it going, a test for you, on the edge, endless possibility High on this life, don't fail me now, restricted vision but see it through Lose my mind tonight, I don't wanna know 'cos I aint been told

Greed takes us over, our will to survive They get all the money, we get no piece Eat don't replace, evaluate They take all the glory give us no peace. No life - everything's alright, burning up the sky every night You take over and set the world free Help us to survive and set the world free We swim for a living, gonna swim for ever There are no limits, yourself over others Eat don't replace, evaluate They assume the power, give us no peace

Get up too late, the weekend's dawning, but I'm working at the store Vacant stare in the mirror, vacant stare is all that's left of me Light a cigarette and I catch them later. I'm getting out The weekend's gone, I transcend into normality, another day, one more dollar Day to day don't get me off, day to day it pissed me off Light a cigarette and I catch them later. In the end you'll find me there Weekend's gone, fractured state is all that's left of me, another day at the same fucking store Day to day I don't get high, day to day don't get me far At the end of this shiftI will catch them never In the end you'll find me there, drink a bottle, getting pissed, I just don't care
