I never wanted and I never cared before

I never wanted and I never cared before
(Take it back this is a new day)
I never wanted and I never cared before
(Take it back this is)

How I long to regress to the days
Before I took upon myself

The obsessions of this world
(For tomorrow)
A day of innocence equating beauty
(May fall)

For tomorrow may fall
(And today)
And today is already gone
(Is already gone)

For tomorrow may fall
Today is already gone

(Take it back this is a new day)
I never wanted and I never cared before
(This is a new day)
I never wanted and I never cared before

I've grown tired of chasing
Convinced I was in need
And now the years I've spent
Only a slave to this

Tomorrow may fall
And today is already gone

I will no longer adore to
These things that will never satisfy me
I have seen my world change
And then go back to where it came

In this vicious circle we are
Brought back to life only to die
In this vicious circle we are
Brought back to life only to die
(Die again)

In this vicious circle we are
Brought back to life only to die

In this vicious circle we are
(But without these barren obsessions)
Brought back to life only to die
(I am simply, I am simply free)

I have seen my world change
And then go back to where it came
