The normal man, promised all things.
Brought into this, taken by pain.
He mistook home for grave.

The normal man, filtered by hate.
Living to pay, buying what's fake.
He mistook home for grave.

It's not what we're made to be.
So why'd he do it?
I guess he just did not know.

I guess we just do what we're told.
The anthem cries, but why listen?
I guess we just do what we're told.
Betrayed again, betrayed again.

What began as life for him
Was only sorrow, was only shame.
It's like the story of disgrace.
Fraught with peril every day.

So why'd he do it?
I guess he just did not know.
Given nothing, left so lonesome.
He mistook home for his grave.

It's not what we're made to be.
So breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe.

I guess we just do what we're told.
The anthem cries, but why listen?
I guess we just do what we're told.
Betrayed again.

What began as life for him
Was only sorrow, was only shame.
It's like the story of disgrace.
Fraught with peril every day.

I guess we just do what we're told.
Betrayed again, betrayed again.
I guess we just do what we're told.
The normal man passed away.

Dead and gone.
