You were warned from the day you were born
You were too young so you blew it off
You were told you were gold but as you got old
You discovered that you were too soft

Delusions of greatness and grandeur
Life can be hard just to live
Demanding standards you'll never deliver
If you had two of them to give

Nothing can prepare you for this
You were way off of your guard
Like it or not, it's how you were caught
Now try not to take it too hard

An accident no longer willing
No longer willing to wait
The recipe was for disaster
Disaster was out on the plate

Going down in a downward direction
The momentums been taking its toll
Passed the plate to take up a collection
It's been spiraling out of control

Nothing can prepare you for this
You were way off of your guard
Like it or not, it's how you were caught
Now try not to take it too hard

Nothing can prepare you for this
You were way off of your guard
Like it or not, it's how you were caught
Now try not to take it too hard

The bottom was coming up quick
I guess it just has to be hit
The secret the key and the trick
Is learning to deal with it

It's uphill from this point on out
And the pinnacles up at the top
It hasn't been reached, only practiced and preached
So at this point you might want to stop

You might but might I suggest
I suggest it's best just to climb
Continue you've still got it in you
And be thankful you've still got the time
You've still got the time

Nothing can prepare you for this (Ohh oh)
You were way off of your guard (Ohh oh)
Like it or not, it's how you were caught
Now try not to take it too hard (Still got the time)
