Lyrics

Another puzzle piece that never fit the mold
Another fringe along the fold
A choice to play the game just like a mouse trapped in a maze
Or choose to learn to use your brain

I get the feeling I'm fleeing from the machine
And what I mean is that I'm taking a beating so I can be free
From all the prying and lying in the society
Sobriety is hiding the riot I've got inside of me
I get the feeling I'm fleeing from the machine
And what I mean is that I'm taking a beating so I can be free
From all the prying and lying in the society
Sobriety is hiding the riot I've got inside of me

I learned the hard way,
But I think I've finally found
The missing piece inside of me
Well, I walked the wrong way,
And I got spun around
I lost track of my own feet

Ahhhh…. Ahhhh
I get the feeling I'm fleeing from the machine
And what I mean is that I'm taking a beating so I can be free
From all the prying and lying in the society
Sobriety is hiding the riot I've got inside of me

I learned the hard way,
But I think I've finally found
The missing piece inside of me
Well, I walked the wrong way,
And I got spun around
I lost track of my own feet

All it takes is better days
To sort through all of my mistakes
Somewhere, I know there's peace and clarity
But I've been burnt out
Like a million matches, my lungs are filled with smoke
My heart's as good as broke,
And I'm trying not to choke!

I learned the hard way,
But I think I've finally found
The missing piece inside of me
Well, I walked the wrong way,
And I got spun around
I lost track of my own feet
