GWhat did you expect And what did you forget That to live you let go of me with each step It becomes a progression I won't let regret manifest To aggression Are you to assess what I've been? What I am? Or become? Did you stop to accept how pathetically dumb It can be to Attack those around 'cause you're GTrue to color, a town, a time, or a place? It's not you, it's not mine And besides it is gone And you never will find it again But I don't want to fight I just ask let me be I won't give the chance to be my enemy So go home Think it through A jet plane and a big idea CI jump oDver the seaG What ifs hot on my trail CBut that Dcan't catch me, Gno EmA slight Dfigure of speech GI cut my Cchest wide open EmThey come and Cwatch us bleed GIs it Cart like I was hoping Dnow?
