LYRICS

This is a fall from grace
Can’t bear the aftertaste
As you swallow all your pride,
Are you satisfied?

Every day, like a broken record
Every night is a pointless prayer for change
No reprieve; No peace, no release for your middle class rage

Everybody wants to sell you something
Everybody wants a piece of your mind
Bite your tongue and let the crowd speak for you
Head like a hole and a heart like a landmine

(Hey, hey) Is it any wonder that we end up this way?
(Hey, hey) Born with a crisis of identity
(Hey, hey) Is it any wonder that this happens all the time?
Got a head like a hole and a heart like a landmine

Time hits like a freight train
No paycheck can pay back the lost years spent ruminating
Just pain to be gained from your common sense fears

Everybody’s wasting away here
Watch us bloom and decay

Cast to the side
No one heard you choking as you swallowed your pride
You say you’re happy, but are you satisfied?

No restitution, until you understand
This world that left you cold
Will feed you shit ‘til you bite the fucking hand

So tell me where it hurts, if it hurts to be you
If it hurts to be used and abused
If you know where you don't want to be,
All the heavy hearted, sing this with me

(Hey, hey) Is it any wonder that we end up this way?
(Hey, hey) Born with a crisis of identity
(Hey, hey) Is it any wonder that this happens every day?
Are we cursed and condemned to a life of misery?

So tell me where it hurts, if it hurts to be you
If it hurts to be used and abused
If you know where you don't want to be,
All the heavy hearted, sing this with me
(Hey, hey) All the heavy hearted sing this with me
(Hey, hey) Cursed and condemned to a life of misery
