"Failure" as written by and Howard Evan Rigberg....
I finished at the high of my high school
They said I could do whatever I wanted to
I thought about it for a while
And I answered with a smile...

I choose failure, failure and regret
Failure and dreams are never met
Failure, failure and regret
Failure and dreams are never met

I learned to follow rules and be regrets
My parents were so proud of my success
I could say it was fun but I�d be a liar
Four years, light a match put my head of fire

I choose failure, failure and regret
Failure and dreams are never met
Failure, failure and regret
Failure and dreams are never met

It�s a lo-ooo-ng wa-aaa-y do-aaa-wn
And there�s so much further to go,
so much further to go
uh oh

(Stanza above ^ is sung against stanza's below until the line �Having sex with private squirrels�)

It�s Rolly polly feeling of never knowing what to do
Knowing exactly how parents smells
Stealing each and every toe
Never getting out of bed

They pick some-one else instead
Burning cups but now they�re calm
Waking up in a bull-a-bard
You can�t even touch your toes

We all know where your money goes
Parking bills, playing cards, they look like they�re having fun
Holding fast, weekend goes, waiting but they never called
Having sex with private squirrels

Beaten up by little girls
Heman flap, photo op, nail but never flop
Now I�d ask you to do the dance but someone stole your underpants
Wake all night, sleep all day

Looks like that fracture will go away
Public place, secret chain
You�ve only got yourself to blame
We could never get your turn
These are lessons that you�ll never learn
A perfect moment but you spoiled it
I put your gold fish down the toilet

Oh I�m serious, oh I�m serious,
Next to you, no one cares
This is all when I�m under,
Forgot it that there is no cure

For Failure, failure and regret
Failure and dreams are never met
Failure, failure and regret
Failure and dreams are never met

(Stanza above ^ is sung against stanza below until closing of song)

It�s a lo-ooo-ng wa-aaa-y do-aaa-wn
And there�s so much further to go,
so much further to go
uh oh

    Lyric CorrectionI finished at the height of my high school
    They said I could do whatever I wanted to
    I thought about it for a while
    And then I answered with a smile

    I choose failure, failure and regret
    Failure and dreams I never met
    Failure, failure and regret
    Failure and dreams I never met

    I learned to follow rules and be repressed
    My parents were so proud of my success
    I could say that it was fun but I'd be a liar
    Four years, like a match with my head on fire

    Choose failure, failure and regret
    Failure and dreams I never met
    Failure, failure and regret
    Failure and dreams I never met

    It's a long way down
    There's so much further to go,
    so much further to go-o-o


    Yes I'm all alone, feeling blue
    Never knowing what to do
    Was happy, now it's low
    Stubbing each and every toe

    Never getting out of bed
    They pick someone else instead
    Burn out faster than a comet
    Wake up in a pool of vomit

    You can't even touch your toes
    We all know where your money goes
    Popping pills, playing dumb
    Make pretend you're having fun

    Old and fat, weak and bald
    You waited but they never called
    Having sex with rabid squirrels
    Beaten up by little girls

    Too much pot, bored a lot
    They all laughed but you got caught
    No one asked you to the dance
    Someone stole your underpants

    Up all night, sleep all day
    Looks like that rash won't go away
    Public favor, secret shame
    You've only got yourself to blame

    Wait but never get your turn
    The lessons that you'll never learn
    A perfect moment but you spoiled it
    I flushed your goldfish down the toilet

    Volunteers, volunteers
    That's really nice, but no one cares
    What's the moral? I'm not sure
    I got it bad, there ain't no cure

    For failure, failure and regret
    Failure and dreams I never met
    Failure, failure and regret
    Failure and dreams I never met

    It's a long way down
    There's so much further to go,
    so much further to go-o-o
