  • I've got a bone to pick with this
    So come on, just say it
    If there's a reason to be believed
    Then no one is hurt

    The pain that it caused, deeper than any wound can make

    Man alive, but feeling dead inside
    Day to day with the daily grind of
    Same old shit but different day

    Waving at the opposition
    Ending words with slight convictions
    Spitting in the face of these petty situations
    These situations

    The pain that it caused, deeper than any wound can make

    Man alive, but feeling dead inside
    Day to day with the daily grind of
    Same old shit but different day
    Another habit ready to break

    I'm gonna leave here with my head held high
    There's time enough for wasting if we want

    Consider different ways of seeing the same old things
    We're used to seeing now

    The pain that it caused, deeper than any wound can make

    Man alive, but feeling dead inside
    Day to day with the daily grind of
    Same old shit but different day

    Different day Writer/s: GAVIN BURROUGH, KRIS COOMBS-ROBERTS, MATTHEW DAVIES-KREYE, RICHARD BOUCHER, RYAN RICHARDS
