Lyrics:

(Extended version)

[Verse 1]
A new year has arrived,
Give me what you got, let me be surprised,
There’s so much I want to do, so much I wanna
See.
Let’s start this year with a bang,
Making resolutions with the gang,
We promise each other, to do better than
‘15.

[Chorus]
This year I’m going to
Be everything I wanted,
Every dream I had is gonna
Come real, I can make
Sure of it, ^^ I’m
Sure of it, I’m putting
Everything I have into
Moving ahead.^
All I want to have,
All I want to feel,
I have and I feel
Motivation course through
Me; All the memories, ^
I’m gonna set free, ^
All I know I want I
have within my reach?

[Verse 2]
Middle of March, It’s been a roller-coaster ride,
So many people I idolize died
I’ll remember you forever.
It’s a promise, forever.
I’m scared of turning on the news now,
I keep thinking who is it this time?
I don’t want to know.
(Wait, Frank Jr,?)
From the start of the year,
We started losing every-
one. What
Went wrong?
Those close to the heart,
Those that I never missed a thought
About, I now
Miss them.

[Chorus]
This year I was going to
Be everything I wanted,
Every dream I had was gonna
Come real, I could make
Sure of it,^ I’m not so
Sure of it, I’m putting
Everything I have into
Moving ahead.^
But it’s not enough,
I have frozen feet,
I no longer feel the
Motivation course through.
Me;^^ Memories I
Don’t want set free.
I’m not so sure there’s any
Happiness in my rea....each?

[Verse 3]
Dead, dead again, and they keep dying,
As if a bunch of flies they keep dropping,
What the hell should I do? What the fuck is
Wrong?
Try, try again, as I might, it’s no use,
I can’t bring myself to let go of you.
Oh God.
Why?

[Chorus]
This year I was going to
Be everything I wanted,
Every dream I had was gonna
Come real, couldn’t make
Sure of it,^ I’m Un-
sure of myself,
All my idols bite the dust, I can’t keep
Moving ahead.^
But it’s not just me, not just my
frozen feet, ^^
Everyone around is
Slowly going ^
Crazy; So Hazy,
Feel trapped in a
Maze of illusions.(Wait.)


[Verse 4]
A new year has arrived,
We’ve lost so much it’s no surprise,
That I’ve been feeling so hopeless,
But I refuse to stay listless.
You’ve all lived out your lifes,
Some were short and some filled with strife,
And my best respect to you, Will be to
fight on, and on and go on.
[Exit]
