Somebody give me a sign
That everything's going as planned.
And then everything falls away
Into the darkness of this shallow place.
The detail is striking.
The room's cold and fright'ning.
You kick and you scream,
You try everything to survive.
But you should know your fate by now.

Pre-Chorus:
They told me how I should be.
But I broke the mold, somehow.

Chorus:
It's too late, too late, you keep trying to resolve the past right now.
But I swear I'll be the one
To let the world know what you've done
To me.

You, you know you gotta assert yourself, leave what you need for now.
It's not the time or place you're searching for.
All I can give is my worst of intentions.
You're nothing to me, and everyone can see
That your life's a lie,
There's no where left to hide.

Pre-Chorus:
They told me how I should be.
But I broke the mold, somehow.

Chorus (x 2):
It's too late, too late, you keep trying to resolve the past right now.
But I swear I'll be the one
To let the world know what you've done. (To me)

Bridge:
Watch your back.
You'll lose yourself.
This is a battleground!
When will they know!
Your life's a lie.

Chorus (x 2):
It's too late, too late, you keep trying to resolve the past right now
But I swear I'll be the one
To let the world know what you've done. (Somebody give me a sign)

It's too late, too late, you keep trying to resolve the past right now (That everything's going as planned)
But I swear I'll be the one (And then everything falls away.)
To let the world know what you've done.

Pre-Chorus:
They told me how I should be.
But I broke the mold, somehow.

    This song is about how he wants to do what he wants and to be away from the incrowd, it could also be how a company backstabbed them and they ended up being victorious for how they are instead of how the company wanted them to be.

    I think the songs about how there is a standard of how you should act and dress. They want him to be to follow this standard and listen to all the lies they tell him but he doesn't so he breaks the mold. Breaks the conformity and becomes his own person.
