Oh, life, it seems, a struggle between
What we think, what we see
I'm not going to change my way
Just to please you, or appease you
Inside a crowd, 5 million proud
Willing to punch it out
Right, Wrong
Weak, Strong
Ashes to ashes, we all fall down

Look around, about
This round-about
This merry-go-round and round
If at all God's gaze upon us falls
It's with a mischevious grin
Look at him

Forget about the reasons
and the treasons we are seeking
Forget about the notions
That our emotions can be kept at bay
Forget about being guilty
We are innocent instead
For soon we will all find our lives swept away

Sitting a while
With TV's hungry child
Big belly swells
For the price of a coke or a smoke
I could keep alive those hungry eyes
Take a look at me
What you see in me
Mirror, look at me
Face it all, face it all again

Forget about the reasons
and the treasons we are seeking
Forget about the notions
That our emotions can be kept at bay
Forget about being guilty
We are innocent instead
For soon we will all find our lives swept away

You seek up an emotion and
Your cup is over-flowing
You seek up an emotion
Sometimes your well is dry
You seek up a big monster
For him to fight your wars for you

But when he finds his way to you
The Devil's not going- ha, ha

Look at me
My fancy car, my bank account
How I wish I could take it all down to my grave
God knows, I'd save
Take a look again
Take a look again
Things you have collected
In the end, it all piles up so tall
To one big nothing
One big nothing at all

Forget about the reasons
and the treasons we are seeking
Forget about the notions
That our emotions can be kept at bay
Intentions are not wicked
Don't be tricked into thinking so
For soon we will all find our lives swept away

You seek up an emotion and
Your cup is over-flowing
You seek up an emotion
Sometimes your well is dry
You seek up a big monster
For him to fight your wars for you

But when he finds his way to you
The Devil's not going- ha, ha

Fall back, again….
