lyrics

When you take on the world
It takes on you
Uphill, outnumbered
You try to stay true
To your mind, what you think is right
What you gonna do
When the cheers of the many
Drown the screams of the few

Suffering don't mean
A fuckin thing
Long as your favorite
Show keeps you chuckling
Turnin blind eyes to the cries
Of the ones who been left behind
You close the door
But you're feeling so confined

You hit the floor
You take a stand
You were a boy
Now you're a man
No real advice
No real control
You lose your mind
When you sell your soul

You grew up a
Hellion
Now you stick to
Socially acceptable rebellion
But when the star dies
It ends lives everywhere it shines
You quit the game
You cut the ties

Maybe you left the
Front lines
But no matter how hard you try
Your thoughts still rewind
To the good old days
The good old nights
Remember the passion
But forget the fights

You hit the floor
You take a stand
You were a boy
Now you're a man
No real advice
No real control
You lose your mind
When you sell your soul

Keep putting everybody else first
And comin up last
If you need proof
Just look to the past
Martyr after martyr
Death after death
Murder each new leader
Till there's nobody left

To take control
They say remember your role
Go back home, act sensible
The only way to survive
Is to stop being weak
And never give up
When it looks bleak
