I’m not sure where I should start - but hey
I’m holding on, and I thought that maybe we’d talk, okay?
If this were the part where parts are taped up on the wall,
If I read them all would you walk away?

Oh god, this is harder than hard, today
Just limping along with no art, no say
No idea why anyone tries anymore...

But it’s hard to stay the same
When you’re running out of things you wouldn’t change

Climbing up the wall
Like some spoiled child who still thinks you can have it all

So here I stand
With my hand in my right jacket pocket
I lost it before I began!
Affectation is an art
And you can’t play the part with your heart in your hand

So how do we hit our marks - and stay
With no way back
And no chance of keeping these thoughts at bay

A round of applause, a bow, a fade
The joke’s on me now
Do you get it?
Do you get it?

It’s hard to stay awake
When you’re losing ground with every step you take

Running out the door
One more worried mind, who can’t take his time any more
But I wanted more than trying to keep our heads up with our eyes on the floor

So here I stand
With my hand in my right jacket pocket
Fuck it!
Give up while you can!
Disaffection is an art
And you can’t break a heart when you’re hardly a man
