Modern Life Is War - First and Ellen

English

First and Ellen

Is it wrong to want to walk away
when every day of your life looks like today
and today looks like a rotting lifeless gray?
I don't know where things went wrong with me...
but I feel like I've become a timid shadow
of the person I've always wanted to be.
 
And I've been thinking about my past today...
thinking of all those times I was afraid...
and all those times that I felt worthless and ashamed.
 
I know, I thought I was strong.
I said I would never change...
but that burning house left me an empty frame...
and no longer can I decay...
no longer can I keep my heart locked away.
 
Have you ever felt like you are wasting your whole life
searching for something you can't find?
There's been so much talk of so many slashed up wrists...
but we're much too young to be dwelling on thoughts like this.
So scrape your heart up from the bottom of the bottom of the barrel.
Keep your faith in the path that's growing narrow.
Kill the doubt inside your head.
We overcome. We push ahead.

Thanks for putting this one up! A couple of things though: As an English title, it would be written "First and Ellen".

Furthermore, it might not be how it's formatted in the lyric sheet, but if you style it like this it will be easier to read and especially to keep track of the rhymes, so please change it into this:
