Lyrics:
There is a game I play
Try to make myself okay
Try so hard to make the pieces all fit
Smash it apart, just for the fuck of it
na na na, na na naa
Got to get back to the bottom
The big come down isn't that what you wanted?
Find a place with the failed and forgotten
Isn't that really what you wanted now?

Lyrics:

There is a hate that burns within
The most desperate place I have ever been
Try to get back to where I'm from
The closer I get the worse it becomes
The closer I get the worse it becomes
