you let your innocence deceive you you let your dark perspective dig your grave your reputation must precede you 'cause everything you've done gives you away I KNOW THAT I HAVE SUNG THIS SONG BEFORE SO WHAT DO I HAVE LEFT TO SAY I WONDER HAVE I EVEN LIVED THIS LIFE BEFORE AM I RELIVING ALL THE SAME MISTAKES digging deeper down through shifting sands all the promises you've broken washing your hands of all your lies your past will never see the light there's nothing else that feels so empty as knowing you don't even try to save this man from constant failure you dare to look me in the eye
I had often felt rather trapped by circumstance, like I did all the best and most right things I could think of, but somehow it wasn't good enough. I have very few regrets, and I would not say I have dwelled on them by any means, but when it comes to my art, I do allow myself the luxury of exploring some of those more troubling moments. I've conquered many challenges, but this song is not about the wins. Still, there is a conviction that a person is supremely valuable. That's the positive string threaded through these needles. I once heard that you "can't be lied to" as long as you learn to "understand what is being said". It's that kind of logic that I think comes out as indignation here; the best of intentions and all that rubbish.
