lyrics

Verse 1
Sometimes I feel like quitting
Nothing specific, the life I'm living
Lost it's rhythm, dimmer vision
Cut the lights off, bad decisions
Take the venom, it's like even when I win
I still feel like I'm not winning
I should have nothing to fuss about, everything gravy
But I don't give a fuck about anything lately
Many friends long gone, past life fading
Makes me question who I am, last in line waiting
I've been waiting for what, it never comes
Give me something, anything, good or bad I'll never run
Turned my life around, picked it up, put it on the tracks
Left it all behind, went underground and never looked back
But along the way I lost something, but I don't know what it is
We never know how much we need it 'till it's lost in the abyss
Many tried but can't replace it, once it's dead and gone
This goes out to those who lost their drive and will to belong

Hook 1
Cup half empty, feelings of envy
We pretend we're better off alone
Watching intently, always defending
Against anyone who tries to feel at home
Alone is a disease, in the cold we freeze
True then lonely never leaves
Still we don't concede, maybe feel it as we scream
Like a strong wind blowing through the leaves

Verse 2
And now it's cool to be depressed
But those who claim it never know what it's like to feel the stress
No rhyme or reason, a feeling so subtle that I forget
And go on with life, full speed running to the end
But that's all it is, a race with no purpose
Make it across the finish line and still feel worthless
Stuff the feeling deep inside with little lies
But it always comes back to the surface
No matter how hard I try, it's never hard enough
No matter how far I go, it's never far enough
They say life is what you make it, an I've made a lot
But this voice inside keeps talking and I can't make it stop
Make it stop, thoughts only fade when the drinks heavy
Severed ties several times, attempt to be steady
But change is doomed to fail unless it's from within
I'm stuck because inside is empty, never full again

Hook 2
Cup half empty, feelings of envy
We pretend we're better off alone
Watching intently, always defending
Against anyone who tries to feel at home
Alone is a disease, in the cold we freeze
True then lonely never leaves
Still we don't concede, maybe feel it as we scream
Like a strong wind blowing through the leaves

Verse 3
Sometimes I wonder why I'm here
No TV show, uncovered fears
Life is not the wonder years
Scream but nobody hears
Wanna leave but it's coming clear
My mind became a prison life sentence and I'm stuck in here
I sold myself for a dime and a magic bean
But money falls short, it can't buy you what you need
We all give up on dreams just to keep our pockets fatter
Like all we see is green, but in the end it doesn't matter
The rat race, and price is steep, no joke
In the end you lose your friends, left with no hope
Disconnected, we're all disconnected
Lives with no meaning, demeaned and disrespected
Feelings of rejection, we've all been rejected
All the mirrors broke, no self reflection
We all have more in common than we know
A fact that's overlooked because we all feel so alone
