lyrics

it makes me want to wake up, when left to change or fade
that's when I realize either way there's a price paid

it makes me want to shake out, every ache and pain
when all my asides mean I'm living in the same day

but the times have changed, all been rearranged
all been death-defied, tiny voices amplified

it makes me want to climb up and right out of my skin
I'm feeling lower than low but pasting on this stupid grin

it makes me want to break up everything that you make
when each decision you make is only made for the sake of it's own sake

but the times have changed, all been rearranged
all been death-defied, tiny voices amplified

a million cities bleed and die without you,
because you were busy winning hearts and minds
and it doesn't matter what you think I meant, cause it's all been done before

it makes me want to tear up, raise my voice and arms and rage
against this slow decline in the face of this new age

it makes me want to shut up, and no longer hesitate
when I see you tonight, and you know that I can't wait, I can't wait

but the times have changed, all been rearranged
all been death-defied, tiny voices amplified

so what ever your reason is, time will take you back down a peg
truth is, the reason is, you only play at helpless

a million cities bleed and die without you,
because you were busy winning hearts and minds
and it doesn't matter what you think I meant, when it's all been done before

about

Better Living Through Chemistry Ottawa, Ontario

Better Living Through Chemistry are a straight up rock band, with clever lyrics and catchy hooks.

They have a bad case of broken strings, cracked cymbals, and buzzing mics. Schooled in the alternative music scene of the 80s and 90s, this band wears their influences (The Replacements, Soul Asylum, Paul Westerberg, among others... ) on their collective sleeves...like badges of honour.
