Dirty sunrise creeping in
Broken bottles
Guilt within
The room is black
The blinds are drawn

I don't remember anything
What I've done, where I've been
Another night has come and gone

This is not for me, no
This is not for me, no
This life is not for me, no
This is not for me, no
Anymore

The Devil smiles and laughs at me
Says you'll be back, just wait and see
You know I've heard this all before

And I say
You can keep your high life in the hills
Your cocaine lies and whiskey thrills
I don't need you anymore

This is not for me, no
This is not for me, no
This life is not for me, no
This is not for me, no
Oh, oh

The only thing that makes me whole again
Is to stand right here before you with a song
Oh, oh
I'll keep running till the very end
For the life I've lived is not the life I want

(Solo)

Dirty sunrise creeping in
Broken bottles, guilt within
In a place I don't belong

This is not for me, no
This is not for me, no
This life is not for me, no
This life is not for me, no
Anymore
Yeah

You can keep your life
I don't want it anymore, yeah
I'm gonna leave it all behind, yeah
I'm gonna leave it all behind, yeah
I don't want no more, don't want no more
Yeah, yeah, yeah

    This song is about drug addiction, which was motivated by myles kennedy's struggles with drugs and alcohol. The lyrics depict a moment of epiphany, where the user realizes this is not the life they wanted, and they vow to put it behind them.
