Me And Mia Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

As I was walking through a life one morning
The sun was out, the air was warm
But oh, oh, oh, I was cold

And though, I must have looked half a person
To tell the tale in my own version
It was o-o-only then that I felt whole

But do you believe
In something beautiful?
Then get up and be it

Fighting for the smallest goal
To get a little self-control
I know how hard you try
I see it in your eyes

But call your friends
'Cause we've forgotten
What it's like to eat what's rotten
And what's eating you alive
Might help you to survive

We went on, as we were on a mission
Latest in a grand tradition
And oh, oh, oh, what did we find?

It was Ego who was flying the banner
And me and Mia, Ann and Ana
Oh, oh, oh, we'd been unkind

But do you believe
In something beautiful?
Then get up and be it

Fighting for the smallest goal
To get a little self-control
I see it in your eyes
I see it in your spine

But call your friends
'Cause we've forgotten
What it's like to eat what's rotten
And what's eating you alive
Might help you to survive

And even the nights, they could get better
And even the days ain't all that bad
And after a week of fighting
As more and more, it seems the right thing

Do you believe
In something beautiful?
Then get up and be it

Fighting for the smallest goal
To gain a little self-control
Won't anybody here
Just let you disappear?

Not doctors, nor your mom and dad
But me and Mia, Ann and Ana
Know how hard you try
Don't you see it in my eyes?

Sick to death of my dependence
Fighting food to find transcendence
Fighting to survive
More dead but more alive

Cigarettes and speed for livin'
And sleeping pills to feel forgiven
All that you contrive
And all that you're deprived

All the bourgeois social angels
Telling you, you've got to change
Don't have any idea
They'll never see so clear

But don't forget, what it really, really
Means to hunger strike
When you don't really need to
Some are dying for a cause
But, that don't make it yours
And even the nights, they could get better
