What do you do when nothing's going right
You try to recover every single night
But you keep on going, and driving through the ground

You're totally broke at some idiot's expense
With every action comes equal consequence
As the ball keeps rolling, and drags you to the ground

A little mistake can burn a building down
The bigger you are the harder you can fall
When your glass half empty spills to water

Desert soil
And then it starts to boil
And the shattered glass cuts what's left, and you feel like...

Why can't they pick on someone their own size
Spend a day screwing up, and they eat your sorry life
Until they get to fat, to raise you to their mouth

Anything free has left you far behind
You schedule your own sentence and lock yourself for life
In an ever-growing prison where you're occupying

Every cell
And now you live in hell
All the keys have lost themselves and you want to...

As your foundation crumbles, and sinks beneath your soul, again
You look out
And see the rising sun's horizon is a blur
Of hope

You wake every morning and wince at how you feel
The bruises and the cuts just never seem to heal
Because you go, go, go, and you watch the world just
Pass you by
Before you start to cry
And then you start to wonder why, and you feel like
You go, go, go, and you watch the world just
Pass you by
Before you start to cry
