"Bittersweet Symphony"


'Cuz it's a bittersweet symphony this life...
Trying to make ends meet ,
You're a slave to the money then you die.
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down...
You know the one that takes you
To the places where all the pain lives, yeah.

No change, I can't change, I can't change, I can't change
But I'm here in my mold , I am here in my mold.
But I'm a million different people from one day to the next...
I can't change my mold , no,no,no,no,no,no,no

Well I never pray,
But tonight I'm on my knees, yeah.
I need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah.
I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind
I feel free now.
But the airwaves are clean
And there's nobody singing to me now.

No change, I can't change, I can't change, I can't change
But I'm here in my mold , I am here in my mold.
And I'm a million different people from one day to the next
I can't change my mold, no,no,no,no,no,no,no

(Well have you ever been down?)
(I can change, I can change...)

'Cuz it's a bittersweet symphony this life.
Trying to make ends meet
Trying to find some money then you die.
You know I can't change, I can't change, I can't change,
But I'm here in my mold, I am here in my mold.
And I'm a million different people from one day to the next.
I can't change my mold, no,no,no,no,no,no,no

(I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down)
(I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down)
(It justs sex and violence melody and silence)
(Been down)
(Ever been down)
(Ever been down)
