Another place repeating the mantra
I'm here to stay, ashamed of where I've been
And what I've seen
These eagle eyes that judge me
Another face conceiving the moment
It never leaves, it stakes it's claim on me
It stakes it's claim on me
A visionary in hiding

I'll never make it
I'll never make it

A crying wolf, this boy's become a man

I always thought I would be different
With steady hands & heart and always in control
Be holding fast, but slowly letting go
I always thought I'd make a difference
But now I'm spending lives instead of saving souls
The more I learn, the less I seem to know

Heavy hands holding his hated
Static sun suppressing secret screams
Dishonoring distant dreams
Can he ever stop it?

We'll never make it
We'll never make it

The lion preys, the man can't break his chains

I always thought I would be different
With steady hands & heart and always in control
Be holding fast, but slowly letting go
I always thought I'd make a difference
But now I'm spending lives instead of saving souls
The more I learn the less I seem to know

I will illuminate
To try to help myself
To feel something for nothing
I hung the images up to see
If I could still fake all the feelings
And try to be what you want
Be everything that you need
Be everything that you need

I'm here again consumed in the moment
My mind reflects repeating it back to me
Repeated it back to me
Why would you even begin to try?
You'll never make it
You'll never make it
You'll never make it

I always thought I would be different
With steady hands & heart and always in control
Be holding fast, but slowly letting go
I always thought I'd make a difference
But now I'm spending lives instead of saving souls
The more I live the less I seem to know
The less I seem to know
