Don't you know what you're doing is bound to fail
You're a puppy dog chasing the same ol' tail
The face is different but the heart remains
The same ol' lover with a brand new name

You're burning the candle at both ends son
When you gonna learn that the fire is hot
If you always do what you've always done
You always get what you always got

You're robbin' the house thinkin you won't get caught
Everytime you lose you say it aint your fault
You keep on doin what you've been doin again
Thinkin what you did'll have a different end

Chorus

Life is a lesson and the lesson I've learn
Is the choice you make is gonna be long term
If there's anything brother that I can say
Is that you'll pay tomorrow for what you do today

Chorus
