Submit Corrections Cancel

Somewhere between happy and total fucking wreck
Feet sometimes on solid ground and sometimes at the edge
To spend your waking moments, simply killing time
Is to give up on your hopes and dreams, to give up on your

Life for you's been less than kind
(Who we are)
So take a number, stand in line
(Who we are)

We've all been sorry, we've all been hurt
(Who we are)
How we survive is what makes us who we are
(Who we are)

An obvious disinterest, a barely managed smile
A deep nod in agreement, a status quo exile
I shirk my obligations, I miss all your deadlines
I excel at quitting early and fucking up my life

Life for you's been less than kind
(Who we are)
So take a number, stand in line
(Who we are)

We've all been sorry, we've all been hurt
(Who we are)
But how we survive is what makes us who we are
(Who we are)

All smiles and sunshine, a perfect world on a perfect day
Everything always works out, I have never felt so fucking great
All smiles and sunshine, a perfect world on a perfect day
Everything always works out, I have never felt so great

Life isn't like this
Life isn't like this
Life isn't like this
Life isn't like this

Life isn't like this
Life isn't like this
Life isn't like this
(Are we verging on an answer)
(Or fucking up our lives?)

For you's been less than kind
(Who we are)
So take a number, stand in line
(Who we are)

We've all been sorry, we've all been hurt
(Who we are)
But how we survive is, is what makes us who we are
(Who we are)

(Who we are)
That's what makes us who we are
(Who we are)
What makes us who we are

(Who we are)
That's what makes us who we are
(Who we are)
