lyrics

Verse 1
I can spare no time
Got too much to kill
Think about why I'm
Going so downhill
So fixated on
My yesterdays
Looking for a new dawn
To keep my old ways

My life is a journey
With so many paths
Constantly guiding me
Straight into its wrath
I want my old pain
Want to feel again
But I can't abstain
I don't know - I don't know how to live for today
I am stuck in the past
I don't know - I don't know how to live for today
No hope tomorrow
Nothing to look forward to - nothing to look forward to
Just have another drink
Nothing to look forward to - nothing to look forward to
No fire left burning
It's the same every day
Black tomorrow
Covet yesterday
There's no meanwhile
Just lost time
There's no meanwhile
Just lost time



Chorus
Here we go again
Another failed attempt
To say something of value
To feel something true

Verse 2
Look at you
How could you
Do this? You
Who are you?

That mirror
Is getting
Unbearable, isn't it?
What have you done with our talents?
Absolutely nothing
What are you doing about it?
Now you're stuck
We used to be a friend - We used to be a friend
Now you're fucking selfish
Do you remember when that was all that mattered?
Now how do you treat your loved ones?
Drinking, eating, working, sleeping, just surviving
Where did our future go?
I can't believe that our worst fear is now here
Where did our future go?
It's the same every day
Black tomorrow
Covet yesterday
There's no meanwhile
Just lost time
There's no meanwhile
Just lost time

Chorus
Here we go again
Another failed attempt
To say something of value
To feel something true
Verse 3
I cannot see this heart break any more you have to lift us up from the floor

Remember who you are
Say your name
What does it mean?
It's not a game
Today's the day
You've gotta change your ways

But every time I try it just gets snuffed
There's this rot inside me stuffed deep down

Growing everyday/Rot
