I should have never got this far
I'm nothing but a bad example
I'm thinking of the college life away from these distractions

Then I could get a real job
And maybe then I'd please my parents
I'm sitting on a diamond mine unmapped and unexcavated

This is a bad sign
I'm believing my own lie
All the money is gone and now there's noone left to bail me out

I should have never got this far
I'm nothing but a bad example
I'm thinking of the college life away from these distractions

But I don't want to sound defeatist
In truth I've never felt so good about this
Only it's a family flaw to be overtly pessimistic

This is a bad sign
I'm believing my own lie
All the money is gone and now there's noone left to bail me out

So take it from me
That these things will work themselves out in the end
Can't just say that you do it to yourself

This is a bad sign
I'm believing my own lie
All the money is gone and now there's noone left to bail me out
