(I never thought I'd be a soldier
I take my place inside the battle
I've come to realize the journey is over
Realize that life is sober)

Everyday I'm like a soldier
Waking up within the battle
And through the haze I live a dream that's better
Than What I feel inside, diggin' in me

Suffering darkness in my eyes against the light of Rome
I see the reflection of the ghost that I've become
Waiting behind the windows, I resign to be alone
I want to feel alone and lost in this solitude

Shallow life
I'll stay close to the ground
Shallow life
The walls keep falling down
I close my eyes
I'll find my way around
In the shallow life

(Welcome to the bottom line)
Suffering darkness in my eyes against the night of Rome
I get confused and all I hear is just myself
I will resign and search for peace of mind, I'm on my own
I need to be alone and lost in this solitude

Shallow life
I'll stay close to the ground
Shallow life
The walls keep falling down
I close my eyes
I'll find my way around
In the shallow life

The walls keep falling
Shallow life
I'll stay close to the ground
Shallow life
The walls keep falling down
I close my eyes
I'll find my way around
In the shallow life
Shallow life
(Welcome to the bottom line)
