When what I'm building for tomorrow comes crashing down
Today
And what I put my effort into falls apart anyway
When the seed I planted dies and my roots have washed
Away
And I've got nothing to say when there's nothing left for
Me
And everything is in my way will I be broken like a chain
With a weak link will I speak out and let the people
Who hurt me know what I think? it's kinda hard to be what
I wanna be

But I'm trying real hard cause I wanna believe
And I can't help it if you don't wanna understand
So I'll play it by ear and do the best I can
When everything that I've been taught has been proven
Wrong
And the debts that I've acquired have gone unpaid for way
Too long
When I cause painful division because of my stupid pride
When the love I give to someone gets taken for granted
And brushed aside...
