As It Is - Cheap Shots & Setbacks Lyrics




You've got everything to look up to from the bottom
You've got everyone else to compare yourself against
So forget it, you're forgotten in a world so disenchanted
Always asking, never knowing
Is it just you or everybody else?

We're the kids who are dead inside
But we're the ones who feel alive
We dream cause we don't sleep
We'll never get rest, but we got this

It hurts, and they like that
They fight fire with cheap shots and setbacks
They take cloudless thoughts and pristine hearts for granted
So forget them, they've forgotten you already
You can't help, can't help but ask yourself
"Is it just me or everybody else?"

We're the kids who are dead inside
But we're the ones who feel alive
We dream cause we don't sleep
We'll never get rest, but we got this
[x2]

I don't need your cheap shots and setbacks
I'm fucking fine so go and take them all back
I don't need your cheap shots and setbacks
[x2]

We're the kids who are dead inside
But we're the ones who feel alive
We dream cause we don't sleep
We'll never get rest, but we got this
[x3]

    skyisnotupintheclouds

    this sounds nothing like what's my ages again... its has the same chords but the strumming pattern and beat is different and a lot of songs have the same chords dude.

    Billie Seed

    @skyisnotupintheclouds the opening riff is far too similar for my liking... idk i just really fucking hate this song haha

    skyisnotupintheclouds

    yeah to be fair the opening riff is very similar (i,m pretty sure its the same) and this song isn't the best song as it is has come out with.

  44. TheTriggeredDonkey

    You've got everything to look up to from the bottom
    You've got everyone else to compare yourself against
    So forget it, you're forgotten in a world so disenchanted
    Always asking, never knowing
    Is it just you or everybody else?

    We're the kids who are dead inside
    But we're the ones who feel alive
    We dream cause we don't sleep
    We'll never get rest, but we got this

    It hurts, and they like that
    They fight fire with cheap shots and setbacks
    They take cloudless thoughts and pristine hearts for granted
    So forget them, they've forgotten you already
    You can't help, can't help but ask yourself
    "Is it just me or everybody else?"

    We're the kids who are dead inside

    We dream cause we don't sleep
    We'll never get rest, but we got this

    I don't need your cheap shots and setbacks
    I'm fucking fine so go and take them all back
    I don't need your cheap shots and setbacks

    We dream cause we don't sleep
    We'll never get rest, but we got this
    [x3]
