Tired and frustrated, this life is bringin’ me down to my knees
I can’t find one good reason to hold on to the world we’re living in
These are the last words (the last words) i‘ll ever speak
This is the last time (the last time) we’ll ever meet

I am trapped in a life i don’t want to live
And i know that there’s only one way out of it

Raise your voice
Establish clarity
When all turns black
These modern values don’t mean a thing

Sick of all your hatred, don’t wanna be part of this society
There’s no one to take care of the ones in great distress, why don’t you see
It’s so depressing, i will never get used to it
Let’s raise a toast to the downfall of the kings and queens

This can’t be it, there must be something more
We can’t just sit around and wait, hoping that this might do
No one’s gonna save us all except from ourselves
The glory and the fame, it will fade sooner than you think

You know who i am
You know who i once was
You know where i’ve been
You know almost everything

You know the way i talk
You know the way i feel
You know the way i act
When it comes over me

There’s only one thing you don’t know about me
And that thing is I’m not myself
When you’re with me I’m not the one I’m supposed to be
That means from your side it’s only cold reading
Cuz you don’t see into my very being
