x-revolution (settling for second best) lyrics – the new cities

it’s all overrated
we’re all dazed and jaded

we never give a d*mn if you’re on our side
it doesn’t make it better but it sure feels right
do you believe, do you believe me?
we never pay the price but commit the crime
you wanna get it fast but you got no time
do you believe, do you believe me?

now can you blame the kids for trying to aim
for fated future to change whatever your reaction
look out for clues, this is the path that we choose
this is our moment of true, alive and in full action

it’s all overrated
we’re all dazed and jaded
it’s an illusion, x-revolution
not what we awaited
we all feel sedated
sick evolution, it’s an intrusion

we can see clearly but we don’t look twice
your arms get stronger but your bravery’s gone
do you believe, do you believe me?
sick of being stuck in the twilight zone
who you gonna trust when your faith is gone?
will you believe, will you believe me?

now can you blame the kids for trying to aim
for fated future to change whatever your reaction
look out for clues, this is the path that we choose
this is our moment of true, alive and in full action

it’s all overrated
we’re all dazed and jaded
it’s an illusion, x-revolution
not what we awaited
we all feel sedated
sick evolution, it’s an intrusion

is it that we’re supposed to be?
a simple minded tragedy
taking more and giving less
settling for second best
remember when you once believe
in endless possibilities
those days when you could do no wrong
i wonder if those days are gone

it’s all overrated
we’re all dazed and jaded
it’s an illusion, x-revolution
not what we awaited
we all feel sedated
sick evolution, it’s an intrusion

it’s all overrated
is it that we’re supposed to be?
we’re all dazed and jaded
a simple minded tragedy
not what we awaited
taking more and giving less
we all feel sedated
settling for second best
