Lyrics

J-Dog: I'm a social casualty, watching all your vanity
Funny Man: You'll become a memory in someone else's legacy, yeah
Charlie Scene: Fuck the trendsetters, social pressure is the enemy
J-Dog: Someone else's life is becoming your identity
Johnny 3 Tears: I walk the line, one step at a time
Funny Man: All these motherfuckers try to keep me in line
This pressure I can't take, any more and I'll break
Charlie Scene and Johnny 3 Tears: You'll crumble in my wake, better listen when I say

Charlie Scene: There's gotta be a way
Something's gotta change, something's gotta change

Danny: And now I swear I'm blind
Looking for the light I can never find
I just wanna live before I die
Over and over in my mind
And I cannot seem to run, cannot seem to fight
I just wanna live before I die
Over and over in my mind
J-Dog: Over and over in my mind

Johnny 3 Tears and Charlie Scene: Fuck what the people say, I'm hearing evil things
On bloody knees, I pray; my demons, they got angel wings
Funny Man and J-Dog: It's retribution now, the revolution sound
You're execution bound and it's time to burn it down
Charlie Scene: Doomsday, I think it's coming; getting close, but I keep on running
Johnny 3 Tears: Try to make me feel like nothing, now my hate's turned into something
Funny Man: I feel it deep inside, these demons will not die
J-Dog: I tried to run and hide, but now it's time to say goodbye

Charlie Scene: There's gotta be a way
Something's gotta change, something's gotta change

Danny: And now I swear I'm blind
Looking for the light I can never find
I just wanna live before I die
Over and over in my mind
And I cannot seem to run, cannot seem to fight
I just wanna live before I die
Over and over in my mind
J-Dog: Over and over, I...

Charlie Scene: I'm a fucking time bomb
A motherfucking time bomb
Johnny 3 Tears: I'm a fucking time bomb
J-Dog: A motherfucking time bomb
Danny: I'm a fucking time bomb
J-Dog: A motherfucking time bomb
Funny Man: I'm a fucking time bomb
J-Dog: And you're running out of time

Danny: Blind
Looking for the light I can never find
I just wanna live before I die
Over and over in my mind

And now I swear I'm blind
Looking for the light I can never find
I just wanna live before I die
Over and over in my mind
And I cannot seem to run, cannot seem to fight
I just wanna live before I die
Over and over in my mind
J-Dog: Over and over, I...

Danny: I'm a fucking time bomb
J-Dog: A motherfucking time bomb
Funny Man: I'm a fucking time bomb
J-Dog: And you're running out of time
