What's standing in your way?
Cause you're afraid to make mistakes sometimes,
You hold your ideas back and go to sleep.

And you said you've been around the block (/mark)
Oh the things you know and the places you go,
The ideas that everybody's had before.

Well listen to yourself,
You rely on everyone else,
What brought it to attention
Because it sits uncomfortably,
Well .........
When all you ever say,
Is somebody's always getting in the way.

What was the simple remedy?
When you convince yourself you're somewhere else,
You hold your ideas back and go to sleep.

Well listen to yourself,
You rely on everyone else,
What .... to attention
Because it sits uncomfortably,
Well .........
When all you ever say,
Is somebody's always getting in the way.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure the second verse ends with the line

    "The ideas that everybody's had before."

    The third line of the chorus sounds like:

    "What brought it to your attention"

    General CommentThat line is actually 'Well come on give something a chance' according to the lyrics in the Commercial Breakdown CD sleeve.

    General Commenthaha, this song reminds me of someone at college.

    the missing bits in the chorus are:
    'what brought it to attention'
    and
    'come on give something a chance'
