How long i have wanted
This dream to come true
And as it approaches
I can't believe i'm through
I've tried,
Oh, how i've tried
For a life, yes a life
I thought i knew

Oh it's the price we gotta pay
And all the games we gotta play
Makes me wonder if it's worth it to carry on
'cause it's a game we gotta lose,
Though it's a life we gotta choose
And the price is our own life until it's done

Time seems to have frozen,
But the mind can be fooled
As the days pass i discover
Destiny just can't be ruled
Hard times,
Oh hard times,
For the prize, yes the prize,
I thought i knew

Oh it's the price we gotta pay
And all the games we gotta play
Makes me wonder if it's worth it to carry on
'cause it's a game we gotta lose,
Though it's a life we gotta choose
And the price is our own life until it's done

Oh it's the price we gotta pay
And all the games we gotta play
Makes me wonder if it's worth it to carry on
'cause it's a game we gotta lose,
Though it's a life we gotta choose
And the price is our own life until it's done

Oh it's the price we gotta pay
And all the games we gotta play
Makes me wonder if it's worth it to carry on
'cause it's a game we gotta lose,
Though it's a life we gotta choose
And the price is our own life until it's done

    After a life spent learning
    to see the truth
    behind all the lies
    comes a time
    in your life
    when you have to make a choice
    to stand up for truth as authority
    or to accept authority as truth
    the price is your soul
    and the choice
    iy yours

    We have to make our own choices in our life wrong or right we'll never know untill its the price we've paid.

    I love this song, but in my opinion this song is talking about death or someone, who just wanted to die or kill themselves
