Are you ever

Are you ever going to make something
Out of your pathetic life

Do you always have to get the last word in
Does it always have do be some kind of

Lame flame blame game

Does it always have to be
Your manipulative muttering stuttering

Incapability of any kind of shame

Are you ever going to focus
Is there anything you think worthwhile
That you’re willing to sacrifice for train for
And not just work that look at me smile

I thought you had youth beauty and charm
I thought you wanted to develop an artist’s soul
But in the end your self entitlement and self indulgences
Turned you into being petty small and cold

So if you think that makes you a winner
Then that just goes to show you haven’t changed much
Are you ever going to step all the way out here
Or would that mean you’d have to leave your

Safety net and fall back crutch

Don’t you think that faith has a place
Don’t you think that talent is earned heavy is the world
When it’s only saving grace

That can pull you off the last bridge burned
