(Good morning, students)

The story opens right where I knew it would
It's repeating over stuck in my past tense
So I stop, wait, and face the day
I've got to pull it apart so I can push it away

I was born and raised alone and on the edge
I've been waiting more but winding up with less

I can't think about it on every single day
A quick decline coming over me
I won't talk about it but I admit defeat
It's been a short piece of history

The story closes right here, it's over again
It's repeating over like it never began
So I stop, look at all I've done
And I'm feeling like I'm stuck on page one

I was born and raised alone and on the edge
I've been wanting more but winding up with less

I can't think about it on every single day
A quick decline coming over me
I won't talk about it but I admit defeat
It's been a short piece of history

I can't think about it on every single day
A quick decline coming over me
I won't talk about it but I admit defeat
It's been a short piece of history

I was born and raised alone and on the edge
I've been wanting more but winding up with less
