id like to complain about this water
i can see right through it and things oughta
be the same
but they aint

get a degree and join the circus
theyll fit your suit but is it worth the time
it took to find

and we all feel the pain
of changing and still playin the same
strange game

that pretty girl in this ugly bar
sure is a looker but thats only lookin so far
as a fallin star

a waiting rooms got it magazines
to bleed the time slow in between the lines
we draw in our minds

and we all feel the pain
of waning wax wrapped around a flame
that bears your name

and the best ive ever known
have taught me to leave my home
my home
but i cant
i need to sit down
i need to think

used to have a feelin about a time
when i halfway lost my mind
never say youre leaving me behind

but wherever it is
my clock keeps tickin for the time being
everythings stickin in rhyme
i know i got mine

and we all feel the pain
of stitchin our own chains
and learnin who to blame
