Lyrics

At the centre of the earth
in the parking lot 
of the 7-11 
where I saw taught
The motto was just a lie
It says "home is where your heart is"
but what a shame
'cause everyone's heart doesn't beat the same
We're beating out of time
City of the dead
at the end of another lost highway
signs misleading to nowhere
City of the damned
lost children with dirty faces today
no one really seems to care
I read the graffiti 
in the bathroomstall
like the holy scriptures 
in a shopping mall
And so it seemed to confess
It didn't say much 
but it only confirmed that
the centre of the earth
is the end of the world
And I could care less

This album is in Standard, not half step down. Just thought I'd let you know. I also disagree with the lead part during the verses, but other than that its good.
