lyrics

I’ve only found
Nothing ever goes right
The first time around
And there’s no progress in sight
My feet touch ground yet my instinct’s to crawl
It’s protocol

I guess I know it’s not too smart to compare but
My hand is forced because I’m trailing the field
How can I prove that I am more than a haircut?
How do I know when my fate has been sealed?

And as the debt gets bigger
A deeper part of me gets the picture
Meanwhile the gap grows wider
I sacrifice my moral fiber
Sometimes, sometimes you have to pull the lever
I missed my cue but better late than never

I cannot call myself a finished product
I stare at the clock and wonder when I’ll be whole
How could I possibly defend all my conduct?
How long should I relinquish control?

And as the debt gets bigger
A deeper part of me gets the picture
Meanwhile the gap grows wider
I sacrifice my moral fiber
Sometimes, sometimes you have to clip the tether
I missed my cue but better late than never

As the divide gets longer
I wonder what feats I still could conquer
Meanwhile the wall grows higher
My shoulder angel’s a big fat liar
Sometimes, sometimes you must ignore the tremor
I took some time but better late than never
