Today I saw my inspiration Realised I haven’t begun Painted myself right out the picture Now I have to decide Read all about it Your inner demons on the loose Read about it On your daily commute Heard the news that bought me to my knees We kick out against it all All the pain and those policies Everything you hold you concede Sha –la-la Sha –la-la Sha –la-la Held in the grip of it all The legacy that she taught While all the papers they forget it We still see it on us all
Look in the mirror; tell me what it is you see Is it your worst enemy? Staring right back here at me Part of something that you never signed up for Do you still recall who you’re working for? Step back Get hacked Step away from it all Create Delay Don’t you know who set out to be Walk through the city streets, where stepping out of time No longer towing the party line Not too late to change our minds The individuals they slowly fade away All too busy chasing fame Stroll on Get lost Somewhere different today Freakout Breakdown Just to make a change Gotta make your mark upon these walls I’m not gonna see you fall I’m out of touch and out of control Find a way of escape now you’ve made up your mind Now there’s no place left to hide Except in the corners of your mind
A holy man He stood before me with a bible in his hand Said he speaks with god, He calls him by his name everywhere he walks Said he’s seen the light As he gambles his life away Every penny that he every made Wanting his life to be saved She had it all Ambition had taken her right to the top She wanted more She started to get high and elevate the norm Waiting for the night As she smokes her life away Every penny that she’d saved She’s tired of the day to day And they’d seen it all Now they’d seen it all, tripped and then they fall Now they’d seen it all They’re both ripped apart at the seams Joined by a common enemy Now everything fades away
You’re walking up the back streets Don’t fit the template, you want more You never back off Don’t let the needle stop What is it you’re trying to say? Make it seem there’s a mystery, but there’s not No you’re not okay Don’t let the beat drop Confounded by the days You put a foot wrong No one will change your way You just soldier on Time captures everything Tattoo the memories so you know What you stood for And was it sinful?
