Tale of 2 Cities

[Verse 1]
Isn't it hard to understand
Who you want to be?
Every day living life,
Clockwork seven-day routine.
It's just so judgemental.
Quick to point the finger,
But you never learn right
Till you burn white.
See, I'm not going anywhere,
But at least I'm trying,
Sick of you sighin'.
Every time I say that,
Take a step back.
Check the state on this place.
No, when my train comes, I can't hesitate.
Won't wait, see, I'm on it.
Just being honest, I won't forget about you.
Always know I'll come back too.
Let me roam,
No, I'll always stay true,
And that's 'cause I'll always, always miss you.
 
[Chorus]
I was only 21 when I died.
Nobody fucking cares, so nobody better cry.
This is life, this is not a game.
This is life, this is not a game.
I was only 21 when I died.
To my stress, yes, see, I gotta say goodbye.
This is life, this is not a game.
This is life, this is not a game.
 
[Verse 2]
This is the tale of two cities,
My head and my mind state.
Constantly in conflict,
Two of the same, but two completely different.
Shit, I don't know which way to turn
Or who to turn to.
Is a dream just a dream?
Are the footprints really true?
I hope you're there like you always said you'd be.
Otherwise it's the first sign of madness,
I'm just talking to me.
Told to keep my friends close and my enemies closer.
Still, not a hard thing when my foes are within.
All we do is complain.
Things remain the same.
Point the finger and push the blame.
And they still remain the same.
 
[Chorus]
I was only 21 when I died.
Nobody fucking cares, so nobody better cry.
This is life, this is not a game.
This is life, this is not a game.
I was only 21 when I died.
To my stress, yes, see, I gotta say goodbye.
This is life, this is not a game.
This is life, this is not a game.
 
[Verse 3]
Am I destined to always feel this way?
It's the same old shit, just a different day.
Physically going places,
Mentally dwelling on the past
And I hate this state that I'm in.
The only pleasure I indulge
Socially is classed as a sin
And I can't win.
Any wonder why I'm startin' not to give a shit?
Society gave an open mind,
Now they wanna take it.
Just let me be to do my own thing.
To my close family, I hope you can see
How every wrong you think you did,
You did right with me.
For that, I hold you strong in my thoughts
And in my memories,
Always in my memory.
Don't ever judge me.
Realisin' this is not a game, this is life.
So forgive me when I say I'm gonna get mine.
Right.
 
[Chorus]
I was only 21 when I died.
Nobody fucking cares, so nobody better cry.
This is life, this is not a game.
This is life, this is not a game.
I was only 21 when I died.
To my stress, yes, see, I gotta say goodbye.
This is life, this is not a game.
This is life, this is not a game.
 
Thanks!
