Lyrics

Do you watch your life go by?
Are you living one big lie?
Is this what you had in mind?
To be counting out your time,
Do your days just seem to pass?
Every one just like the last,
And when you try to fill your day,
Does it ebb and fade away?

Work becomes monotony, your time becomes lethargy,
Goodbye hopes and dreams, welcome to sweet apathy.

You should know.

Motivation used to be,
An intrinsic part of me,
But now my hours turn to weeks,
No more troughs; no more peaks.

Work becomes monotony, your time becomes lethargy,
Goodbye hopes and dreams, welcome to sweet apathy.

I should know.

We should know.

Well you and I are just the same,
Just a face and just a name,
And you and I just crawl along,
And yet we think there’s nothing wrong,
Well I, for one, have had enough,
All this nothing is too much,
I’m gonna do what I wanna do,
I’m gonna be who I wanna be.

Work becomes monotony, your time becomes lethargy,
Goodbye hopes and dreams, welcome to sweet apathy.
Well I’m breaking out of here, and I will not shed a tear,
I have to gamble all I have, just to find out who I am.

And now I know.
