lyrics

The person standing here before you
Is not the same kid you knew in years gone past
It doesn't matter what you say
I'm still giving up that game

A shot glass full of bitter things
And your cold heart melts from broken dreams
Your tattoo reads "self-destructive"
I'm still giving up that game

You don't want it
But you need it
You can have it
So come and get it

How far, how far will you go
To prove the things you were never really meant to show
Apathy can never last forever
When opportunity is so much better
You sit, and you cry, and you beg for your life
There's so much more than words can bring to life
And it's gold
Once you know
How to hold yourself

The person standing here before you
Is not the same kid you knew in years gone past
I made a couple of changes before
But now I've done it right

A slam dunk with a thought in mind
I really wonder if all that pressure was a tad unkind
The curtain closes on this stage of your life
And all you see is me

You don't want it
But you need it
You can have it
So come and get it

How far, how far will you go
To prove the things you were never really meant to show
Apathy can never last forever
When opportunity is so much better
You sit, and you cry, and you beg for your life
There's so much more than words can bring to life
And it's gold
Once you know
How to hold yourself

How far, how far will you go
To prove the things you were never really meant to show
Apathy can never last forever
When opportunity is so much better
You sit, and you cry, and you beg for your life
There's so much more than words can bring to life
And it's gold
Once you know
How to hold yourself
