Cause it's a bittersweet symphony this life
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
No change, I can't change, I can't change, I can't change,
But I'm a million different people from one day to the next

But tonight I'm on my knees, yeah.
I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind, I feel free now.

But I'm here in my mold, I am here in my mold.
I can't change my mold, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
(Well have you ever been down?)

Trying to make ends meet, trying to find some money then you die.
You know the one that takes you to the places where all the veins meet, yeah.
but I'm here in my mold, I am here in my mold.
I can't change my mold, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
I can't change my mold, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
It justs sex and violence melody and silence
It's just sex and violence melody and silence
It's just sex and violence melody and silence (I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down)
(Ever been down)
(Ever been down)
(Ever been down)Cause it's a bittersweet symphony this life
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
No change, I can't change, I can't change, I can't change,
But I'm a million different people from one day to the next

But tonight I'm on my knees, yeah.
I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind, I feel free now.

But I'm here in my mold, I am here in my mold.
I can't change my mold, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
(Well have you ever been down?)

Trying to make ends meet, trying to find some money then you die.
You know the one that takes you to the places where all the veins meet, yeah.
but I'm here in my mold, I am here in my mold.
I can't change my mold, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
I can't change my mold, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
It justs sex and violence melody and silence
It's just sex and violence melody and silence
It's just sex and violence melody and silence (I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down)
(Ever been down)
(Ever been down)
(Ever been down)Cause it's a bittersweet symphony this life
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
No change, I can't change, I can't change, I can't change,
But I'm a million different people from one day to the next

But tonight I'm on my knees, yeah.
I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind, I feel free now.

But I'm here in my mold, I am here in my mold.
I can't change my mold, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
(Well have you ever been down?)

Trying to make ends meet, trying to find some money then you die.
You know the one that takes you to the places where all the veins meet, yeah.
but I'm here in my mold, I am here in my mold.
I can't change my mold, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
I can't change my mold, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
It justs sex and violence melody and silence
It's just sex and violence melody and silence
It's just sex and violence melody and silence (I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down)
(Ever been down)
(Ever been down)
(Ever been down)
