I was never one to make the same mistake twice
I was never one to wait and waste my life
But, sometimes you slip up
Sometimes you think too much
And when I started second guessing every lesson I had learned
It was turning to obsession when I heard their words
They said, you can’t change the world
No, you can’t change the world

I’d got to stop before I dropped the ball
Before I lost face and then I lost it all
In retrospect I regret that I meant it
But never again because I can’t take this

If you build it up,
I will break it down,
You can’t change the world
And I can’t take this
Come on, you can’t run
Come on, you can’t hide
I can’t change the world
But I don't need this

If you build it up
I will break it down
You can’t change the world
And I can’t take this
Come on, you can’t run
Come on, you can’t hide
I can’t change the world
But I don't need this

Reliving the past
That's where I excel
Regretting, forgetting it
And I will burn in hell
Sometimes, life's too slow
Sometimes you can't let go
I was beginning to think
That I preferred what I heard
Echoing in my head again and
I heard their words, they said
You can’t change the world
No, you can’t change the world

I’d got to stop before I took the bait
Before I lost face it and I've felt the weight of the world
Dragging me into this abyss but
Never again because I don't need this

If you build it up,
I will break it down,
You can’t change the world
And I can’t take this
Come on, you can’t run
Come on, you can’t hide
I can’t change the world
But I don't need this

If you build it up,
I will break it down,
You can’t change the world
And I can’t take this
Come on, you can’t run
Come on, you can’t hide
I can’t change the world
But I don't need this

I can’t take this
I can’t take this
I can’t take this
I can’t take this
I can’t take this
I can’t take this
I can’t take this
I can’t take this

Everything I’ve ever believed or attempted
Just disintegrated into hypothetical thought and
Everything I’ve ever had an incentive for
May just as well have never been born, and
Everything that anyone ever achieved
Will be remembered as nothing more than what if?
And every time I listened by myself I will hear
The words you can’t change the world and
I’ll scream back to them
I can't . . .
