I swore from the start, I'd never let you in
to create a sense of entitlement, I'm owed nothing
I wanted to be myself, appreciative of everything
Not another jaded asshole
collecting a paycheck
It was too good to be true
I played the fool and gave in
Now who's the joke?
All on me, I take the blame
I wished I was better than that
I was wrong
I let it all go to my head
swore that I was different
Compared myself to everyone else
for my ego
I knew that it was wrong
I couldn't stop. I just kept finding reasons to glorify myself
What was point of it all?
Life is hard enough without my head in the clouds
Another mistake, I'm sure it won't be the last
Mistakes are too common,
when you feel most comfortable in the past.
I'm trying so hard not to live in the past
Please let go of me, take your hands off my neck
