“LOT IN LIFE” LYRICS

ORPHAN
Ten years ago today
My parents went away
Then this orphan girl
Thrust into the world
Made a pledge to save the day

So I’ve been told a lot in life
In each one rain must fall
I try my best to do what’s right
No one can save them all

SOLACE
Didn’t know what to say
Had to be another way
But my prognosticating friend
He told me that the world would end
Unless I sucked it up and blew those two away

Fate said evil’s my lot in life
For the good of all
Two lives aren’t worth Armageddon, right?
The pride before the fall

ORPHAN/SOLACE
Two shots, one gun
Alone and on the run
And I… will never give up the fight

ORPHAN (overlapping with Solace below)
So I’ve been told a lot in life
In each one rain must fall
I try my best to do what’s right
No one can save them all

SOLACE
Fate said evil’s my lot in life
For the good of all
Two lives aren’t worth Armageddon, right?
The pride before the fall

ORPHAN/SOLACE
Two shots, one gun
Alone and on the run
And I… will never give up the fight

Each day’s the same
All pawns in someone’s game
And I… have no choice but to survive

“TOO GOOD FOR ME” LYRICS

EMMETT
Moving in my girlfriend, it’s been changing my routine
Traded in my futon for a California queen

She’s out there alone, I lie here in fear
We’re sleeping in shifts, I wish she was here
And I don’t know, if she’s coming home

Well, she means the world, but now I see
The world means more to her than me, and
I guess that’s how it’s s’posed to be for now
She’s just too good for me to see
A life for her that includes me, and
I don’t know who I’m s’posed to be right now

FURY OF SOLACE
Sitting there pretending you deserve the whole nine yards
But what’s the use in fighting when your love is in the cards?

You don’t have a choice,
It’s all been foretold
Just sit back and wait
For the truth to unfold
‘Cause what you do, it’s not up to you

She’ll save the world, that much is true,
But she’s not saving it for you
So just do what you’re s’posed to do and go
She’s just too good for me to see
A life for her that includes me,
And I don’t know who I’m s’posed to be right now

EMMETT
Well, if you think your life’s been written
Just live between the lines
