"Life Was Fair"

LIFE WAS FAIR Lyrics by Only Crime
It doesn't make a sound
Ripping through the pages of another time
And sometimes it's hard enough creating versions in my mind
Like an engine hitting failure
Broken down from the night before
If there's a chance to get it right, one thing worth waiting for
Like where I've been before
Kept out of sight but not out of life
Still swept aside and shackled by these penalties and rhymes
So just let me go
And form all the lives I never could
When it evens out in time will we be satisfied?

They should've been ashamed
Reaching back for the life we left behind
If there's a function or release why can't I find the time?
Just a passing observation
Without a trace of banality
If there's a low road to surrender can it just be me?
Like where I've been before
Kept out of sight but not out of life
Still swept aside and shackled by these penalties and rhymes
So just let me go
And form all the lives I never could
When it evens out in time will we be satisfied?
So pacified
Like life was fair
Kept out of sight left with all despair

Like where I've been before
Kept out of sight but not out of life
Still swept aside and shackled by these penalties & rhymes
So just let me go
And form all the lives I never could
When it evens out in time will we be satisfied?
