The Sequel – EP

Lyrics:

Day by day
You’ve taken life for granted
But today
The choice is yours to change it

I’m unable to explain
Why are we living in vain
Why do we do what we’re told
Instead of what we want

One by one
Surrounded and divided
But I’m done
I can no longer hide it

So get this into your head
This rise and run never ends
Is this how you live your life
Head down, never asking why?

Buried in the crowd
Digging my way out

This machine won’t stop
Until we pull it apart
A part of someone else’s
Plan controlling
You living your life like this
Go on and behave
Becoming nothing but their slave
What brings me to my knees is knowing
You’re living your life like this

Rules to ditch
We’re trading theirs for ours
Make them rich
By working after hours

You need to keep this in mind:
These hands aren’t all that they bind
The years will leave you behind
You will find

Rotten to the top
It will chew you up

This machine won’t stop
Until we pull it apart
A part of someone else’s
Plan controlling
You living your life like this
Go on and behave
Becoming nothing but their slave
What brings me to my knees is knowing
You’re living your life like this

*WORK*
There must be more to this life
*EAT, SLEEP, REPEAT*
You must be feeling deprived
*WORK*
The seed they planted too deep
*EAT, SLEEP*
To just work, eat and sleep

*Won’t stop…*

This machine won’t stop
Until we pull it apart
A part of someone else’s
Plan controlling

You living your life like this
Go on and behave
Becoming nothing but their slave
What brings me to my knees is knowing
You’re living your life like this

I know it’s not that easy
To see things for what they are
Not how we always thought they’d be
To live your life and feel time
As it slips through your fingers
It’s taking you away from me

I have so much to tell you
But I don’t know if I can
Nothing I say makes any sense
I’d change it all, don’t know how
It’s all I think about now
Something you’ll never comprehend

Always useless
Another illusion

You know, it’s getting harder
Resisting what’s in my head
I have to face it every day
I try so hard to stay strong
I’m trying not to lose faith
But you can’t trust a thing I say

I’m sorry that I’ve hurt you
Sometimes I just can’t explain
All of the choices that I make
Yet you refuse to let go
You keep me close and I know
If all else fails, you’ll remain

Always useless
*A fleeting moment of hope x2*
Another illusion
*A fleeting moment of hope x2*

Always useless
*A fleeting moment of hope x2*
Another illusion
*A fleeting moment of hope x2*

I’m sorry that I’ve hurt you
Sometimes I just can’t explain
All of the choices that I make
Yet you refuse to let go
You keep me close and I know
If all else fails, you’ll remain

Breathe in, breathe out
The weight of the world has grown too much
You took the easy way out
But I’ve never been one to hold a grudge
You’ve given up
On everything we believed, now you are so out of touch

You tell me they can go to hell
Nobody cares, nobody wants, nobody needs to hear your story
It’s so full of bull excuses, I can tell
In loser’s words it’s always better to be safe than sorry

Say that stars don’t shine anymore
And the light in your eyes looks faded
Breathing may leave scars
But something you should know
If you tried, you could’ve made it
Say that nothing is as good as before
And our chances were slim to none
Breathing may leave scars
But something you should know
The best is yet to come

Within, without a dream,
Your life became a nightmare
Swallowed by doubt
Now all I see is the ghost of you here
A runaround
For all of your friends
Who stood by watching you disappear

You tell me they can go to hell
Nobody cares, nobody wants, nobody needs to hear your story
It’s so full of bull excuses, I can tell
In loser’s words it’s always better to be safe than sorry

Say that stars don’t shine anymore
And the light in your eyes looks faded
Breathing may leave scars
But something you should know
If you tried, you could’ve made it
Say that nothing is as good as before
And our chances were slim to none
Breathing may leave scars
But something you should know
The best is yet to come

Tell me, tell me, where is the life
I’ve been searching for, but cannot find
Please convince me I should be satisfied
With the so-called achievements of humankind

In their eyes, I see a darkness
In your mind, they’re all deceiving
If I took their lies for kindness
Would you tell me to forgive them?

If I asked about my past would you say
You saw it coming?
Don’t know how I made it up here, but so did you
Without ever trying
For a moment I felt free and I knew
That only you could help
Can you hear me when I scream your name?
Or am I talking to myself
Just talking to myself
Yeah

Save me, save me, I’m dying to be
But I’m becoming someone I just can’t stand
Maybe I can teach you how to breathe
Maybe you can teach me to understand

In my mind, there’s a search for answers
All I hear is the silence

If I asked about my past would you say
You saw it coming?
Don’t know how I made it up here, but so did you
Without ever trying
For a moment I felt free and I knew
That only you could help
Can you hear me when I scream your name?
Or am I talking to myself
Just talking to myself

I can’t change you or make you care
It wouldn’t hurt if you could try
When I need help, you’re never there
Am I not worthy of your time?
And though you don’t believe in me
I still believe in you
But don’t ask me why

If I asked about my past would you say
You saw it coming?
Don’t know how I made it up here, but so did you
Without ever trying
For a moment I felt free and I knew
That only you could help
Can you hear me when I scream your name?

Can you hear me when I scream your name?
Can you hear me when I scream your name?
Just talking to myself
Just talking to myself
Just talking to myself
I’m talking to myself
