In the suburbs I
I learned to drive
And you told me we’d never survive
Grab your mother’s keys we’re leavin’

You always seemed so sure
That one day we’d be fighting
In a suburban war
Your part of town against mine
I saw you standing on the opposite shore

But by the time the first bombs fell
We were already bored
We were already, already bored

Sometimes I can’t believe it
I’m movin’ past the feeling
Sometimes I can’t believe it
I’m movin’ past the feeling again

Kids wanna be so hard
But in my dreams we’re still screamin’ and runnin’ through the yard
And all of the walls that they built in the seventies finally fall
And all of the houses they built in the seventies finally fall
Meant nothin’ at all
Meant nothin’ at all
It meant nothin

Sometimes I can’t believe it
I’m movin’ past the feeling
Sometimes I can’t believe it
I’m movin’ past the feeling and into the night

So can you understand?
Why I want a daughter while I’m still young
I wanna hold her hand
And show her some beauty
Before all this damage is done

But if it’s too much to ask, it’s too much to ask
Then send me a son

Under the overpass
In the parking lot we’re still waiting
It’s already past
So move your feet from hot pavement and into the grass
Cause it’s already past
It’s already, already past

Sometimes I can’t believe it
I’m movin’ past the feeling
Sometimes I can’t believe it
I’m movin’ past the feeling again

I’m movin’ past the feeling
I’m movin’ past the feeling

In my dreams we’re still screamin’
We’re still screamin’
We’re still screamin’

Time to change has come and gone
Watched your fears become your god
It’s your decision
It’s your decision

Overwhelmed, you chose to run
Apathetic to the stunned
It’s your decision
It’s your decision

You feed the fire that burned us all
When you lied
To feel the pain that spurs you on
Black inside

No-one plans to take the path that brings you nowhere
Here you stand before us all and say it’s over

It’s over

It might seem an after thought
Yes it hurts to know you’re bought
It’s your decision
It’s your decision

You feed the fire that burned us all
When you lied
To feel the pain that spurs you on
Black inside

It’s your decision
It’s your decision

No-one plans to take the path that brings you nowhere
Here you stand before us all and say it’s over

It’s over
It’s over

Words disappear,
Words weren’t so clear,
Only echos passing through the night.

The lines on my face,
Your fingers once traced,
Fading reflection of what was.

Thoughts re-arrange,
Familar now strange,
All my skin is drifting on the wind.

Spring brings the rain,
With winter comes pain,
Every season has an end.

I try to see through the disguise,
But the clouds were there,
Blocking out the sun (the sun).

Thoughts rearrange,
Familar now strange,
All my skin is drifting on the wind.

Spring brings the rain,
With winter comes pain,
Every season has an end.

There’s an end,
There’s an end,
There’s an end,
There’s an end,
There’s an end.

It’s the last goodbye I swear
I can’t rely on a dime a day love that don’t go anywhere
I learn to cry for someone else
I can’t get by on an odds and ends love that don’t ever match up
I heard all you said and I took it to heart

I won’t forget I swear
I have no regrets for the past is behind me
Tomorrow reminds me just where

Can’t quite see the end
How can I rely on my heart if I break it with my own two hands?
I heard all you said and I love you to death
I heard all you said don’t say anything

It’s the last goodbye I swear
I can’t survive on a half-hearted love that will never be whole

You don’t understand me
But if the feeling was right you might
Comprehend me.
And why do you feel the need to tease me?
Why don’t you turn it around,
It might be easier to please me.

And there’s always another point of view,
A better way to do the things we do.
And how can you know me and I know you
If nothing is true?

What do you think that you are doing?
Who is the fool, the fool
Or the fool that you are fooling?
And maybe I just don’t see the reason
But in the core of my heart
Your ignorance is treason.

And there’s always another point of view.
A better way to do the things we do.
And how can you know me and I know you
If nothing is true?

You think you know how I feel.
It’s not that big of a deal.
There’s no such thing, it’s not real.
Oh…

You don’t understand me.
But if the feeling was right you might
Comprehend me.
And I don’t claim to understand you.
But I’ve been looking around
And I haven’t found anybody like you.

And there’s always another point of view.
A better way to do the things we do.
And how can you know me and I know you
If nothing is true?
