I wrote a novel about it
Grammatically it's full of holes
My specialty's never been
Knowing where them commas go

And I made a promise about it
And you'd think by now I would have learned
That page and pen and good intent
Don't represent a corner turned

I should know better than I do
And I would if I could if I had the will to want to
But I already know this
I already know this well
And yet I remain it
I remain it still

And I'm so frightened of failure
That I'm scared to even begin
That irony's not lost on me
I just refuse to let it sink in

And I'm a creature of habit
Cotton, comfort, sun, and cold
Leave me outside when the river's high
And eventually I'll turn to stone

I should know better than I do
And I would if I could if only I had the will... oh, forget about it
But I already know this
I already know this well
And yet I remain it
I remain it still

And I already know this
I already know this well
And yet I remain it
I remain it still

Oh I already know this
I already know this well
And yet I remain it
I remain it still
