This song is by Senses Fail and appears on the album Life Is Not A Waiting Room (2008).

Lyrics to Ali For Cody:
I'm giving up all expectations
That I will live a meaningful life
I once was filled with inspiration
That lion heart has lost his pride

I'm not the person that I thought that I would be
I keep tripping over the same steps
The stars aren't beautiful
Advice is never useful
And I still walk the line held tight with my regrets
I'd rather die than live like this
I gotta give up giving in

Some people never will go crazy
What horrible lives they must lead
I'm gonna try and paint new scenery
And build a window to help me see

I'm not the person that I thought that I would be
I keep tripping over the same steps
The stars aren't beautiful
Advice is never useful
And I still walk the line held tight with my regrets
I'd rather die than live like this
I gotta give up giving in

I have got my eye lids stapled shut
I have failed but I'm used to it
My past is just that
It's a sunken old ship
There will be moments
I pretend that I can raise it up
Up out from the depths

Who the fuck am I kidding?
I was born with the curse of always giving in
Every day is another chance to make peace with myself
But I would rather play dead

Sure it looks easy when it's through borrowed eyes
A hero has a thousand faces, none of them matching mine
Fuck the world, fuck the stars, fuck the person you are
But nothing will matter if I don't give up folding my cards

I keep tripping over the same steps
The stars aren't beautiful
Advice is never useful
And I still walk the line held tight with my regrets
I'd rather die than live like this
I gotta give up giving in
