"Pin The Tail On The Donkey" as written by and Christopher C./hughes Johnson....
As I kick myself again
And I try to pick myself back up again
Don't want to make the same mistake
Always the first with an excuse
But it's when you're cornered by the truth
Sometimes its easier that way

As you turn away
When realization stares you down
And you swear you've come to terms I'm weary
I've seen it all too many times

It never made much sense
So I always had to stop an second guess
Defeat myself before I start
Comfort seems so far away
Peace of mind is just a luxury
Forgetting is the hardest part

It's not what you say matters
Because anyone could say those words to me
You say that I lack compassion
But that's when my first reaction
Isn't how you wanted me to be

As I kick myself again
And I try to pick myself back up again
Don't want to make the same mistake

    General Commenti can totally relate to this song. i think its sayin that sumtimes when u try and b urself its not what ppl want so u end up feeling like ur fuckin urself over....well thats what i take it as anyway....but i can relate cuz i try and b myself (which is really cool by the way) and its not what ppl want so i feel like its my fault...the best line is "defeat myself before i start" that sums it alllllll up for me....ok im done rambling sorry man....autopilot rox

    General CommentI love this song lyrics and also the music. Im not sure what version I like better though. There is the one that is on the spilt and the ohter one on the looking up cd. I love to see this one played live. There is just so much energy... I have seen APO like 9 times...
