You live your whole life starin' at a wall,
Your mind goes blank sooner now you will fall.

You never learned the things you say to know now, but how,
There seems to be a difference two different kinds of kids,
The one's who go out and the one's who are taught to live,
One group taught how and the other group taught why,

There's no need to tell you, what's in my mind,
But in the game of life I'm doin fine,
No reason to tell you, which way to be,
The streets have opened my eyes to see,

No reason to tell you, what's in my mind,
But in the game of life I'm doin fine,
No reason to tell you, which way to be,
The streets have opened my eyes to see,

Look what's happened now,
What are the reasons why and how,
And don't you think it sounds stupid,
When some one's treated different cause there not the same as me or you?

You live your whole life starin' at a wall,
Your mind goes blank sooner now you will fall.

You never learned the things you say to know now, but how,
There seems to be a difference two different kinds of kids,
The one's who go out and the one's who are taught to live,
One group taught how and the other group taught why,

There's no reason to tell you, what's in my mind,
But in the game of life I'm doin fine,
No reason to tell you, which way to be,
The streets have opened my eyes to see,

No reason to tell you, what's in my mind,
But in the game of life I'm doin fine,
No reason to tell you, which way to be,
The streets have opened my eyes to see.

    Amazing song. It's one of their earliest ones, in fact it was written by M. Shadows' previous band, Successful Failure, when he was a teenager. The song has a really good meaning when you really think about it. It's about how everyone is brought up different in life. Some people live in California, others grow up on farms in Idaho. Some grow up in cities in New York. And everyone grows up and learns things in a different way. Everyone goes on to live their own life and do things how it makes sense to them, even if it doesn't make sense to everyone else. And this songs is basically just pointing out how everyone has differences, but don't judge em or look down on em just cuz of that. Don't think you're better than someone just because they live a different way. It's a great song and I love the beat to it. It's not like most Avenged Sevenfold songs, especially compared to their early stuff, but I love this song.
