lyrics

When you wake up
do you think of
the place where you were born?
Or pull the covers up, to where you left it in a desperate attempt to stay warm
I've got this feeling I don't have enough time, and a lot of people who are telling me to change my mind
But my mind stays intent on the way that it went before,
as I watch the world go bye
on a cold tiled kitchen floor
wondering who even cares anymore, BUT I KNOW

I don't want to be the one to decide on what's "good" an 'evil'
and believe all the lies they try to tell me on the t.v. shows
I don't wanna sit around and talk shit on people all day, every day, until the day I die

You ask me what i've been up to?
i've been waiting on a Miracle, a phonecall, a paycheck and you
I just put my clothes on, get in the car and
every new person i meet seems so foreign
I avert my eyes and shake another strangers hand
but I come face to face with the place where you used to stand

but this is now....and that was then
when you would say
"Why should I care about what It says in the magazines? or believe those promises of real happiness on the fake plasma screens"
but I know, I know, I know, I know

I don't want to be the one to decide on what's "good" an 'evil'
and believe all the lies they try to tell me on the t.v. shows
or have the only good things I ever say be at a funeral
I don't wanna sit around and talk shit on people
all day, all day, every day, until the day I die

And I used to play back all the words you said, but know i've got this PERFECT PEACEFUL SILENCE IN MY HEAD

and Everybody's going crazy, it's just...
who can hide it best?
