I've walked these streets a thousand times
Still this world never seemed colder
Compromised a thousand times
To the will of malicious minds
Reality never hit so fucking hard
Crushed by endless desperation, endless surrender
Retrace the steps, retrace the steps
Is this what I have become?
Retrace the steps, retrace the steps
What the fuck have I become?

Security: Illusion for the weak
Refuge, Sought in routine
Another gear in their fucking machine
See, you can win the rat race
But your still nothing but a fucking rat
So seek that crown
Cause in this kingdom of fools, true ignorance reigns supreme

I see this city for what it is
Retrace the steps, retrace the steps
A monument to the depths of human misery
Retrace the steps, retrace the steps
Retrace the steps
Retrace the steps
Retrace the steps
Retrace the steps

What have we become?

    In my opinion, it basically means that the world is unkind and it will kick you in the teeth in the end and you can't trust anybody with your secrets.
