Like a minnow in a tube
I’m enclosed in attitudes
and I often find that I
try to think and nothing comes up to mind
it’s like it’s all I’ll really ever know
and in the end I’ll have nothing to show
for all my worry pent up inside
when is my time
when does it become my life

you could feel responsible for her
but you got to see
could not have been perfect
if you feel responsible for her
you got to see
could not have been more worthless

When you worry you make it bad
if you're hurt you may get mad
if you look real hard you’ll find
all you worry about is her all the time
and the thoughts roll though my head
of what I should or shouldn't do instead
all the thoughts that are wasted time,
are the thoughts I've left behind

All you are is what you’re worth
and if you’re worthless you’ll get hurt
you'd just stop if you had a clue
worries paying interest on a debt never due
it don’t come easy you’ll get better, besides
you need to learn to get better inside
it might take a while
it might take a while

you could feel responsible for her
but you got to see
could not have been perfect
if you feel responsible for her
you got to see
could not have been more worthless

    General Commentthe singer seems to have a very low opinion of himself and his worth.

    General CommentI disagree, I think this song is much more positive than you might think it is. I think the singer is talking about a girl he used to be with, they aren't together anymore and all he does is worry about her... but he has realized that worrying does no good (when you worry you make things bad) and that he could "feel responsible for her" but regardless, it would still be "worthless". In other words, her problems are not his problems, he needs to live his own life and not let her bring him down. I get it.
