  • The gap that grows between our lives
    The gap our parents never had
    Stop those thoughts control your mind
    Replace the things that you despise
    Oh you're old I hear you say
    It doesn't mean that I don't care
    I don't believe in it anymore
    Pathetic acts for a worthless cause

    In the beginning when we were winning when our smiles were genuine
    In the beginning when we were winning when our smiles were genuine
    But now unforgiven the everlasting everlasting

    The world is full of refugees
    They're just like you and just like me
    But as people we have a choice
    To end the void with all its force
    So don't forget or don't pretend
    It's all the same now in the end
    It was set in a different life
    Destroys my days and haunts my nights

    In the beginning when we were winning when our smiles were genuine
    In the beginning when we were winning when our smiles were genuine
    But now unforgiven the everlasting everlasting

    In the beginning when we were winning when our smiles were genuine
    In the beginning when we were winning when our smiles were genuine
    But now unforgiven the everlasting everlasting
    But now unforgiven the everlasting everlasting Writer/s: James Bradfield, Nicholas Jones, Sean Moore
