It's not a solid, not a soft thing
To pull the wool up like a smoke screen
Nobody does it like a prophet
It's gone before you know you lost it
There are reasons you keep your hands tied
There's certain things you shouldn't have tried
So if you've got it tell me something
You better go from the beginning

We all forget to sleep
Then crash at someone's feet
Everybody skips a beat
We let the chances pass
The few we held so fast
Everybody breaks a glass

And here I'm standing in the middle
Not just a little but a hill-full
Wondering how I got a head cold
Wishing I didn't know what I know
It's never been about the money
We're worthy oh you're not worthy
However much you've got on your plate
You're as good as you reciprocate

We all pretend to keep
Our tongue out of our cheek
Everyone's the fool they seek
We all go off the track
And feel for our way back
Everybody breaks a glass
Everybody breaks a glass

(Yeah, Shook)
Scared to look at peers when they peer back
It's weird how we fear that
It's weird how we wear masks
It appears that we fear our own tears more than tear gas
My team's struggling in years past
Looking to draft beer to bring cheers back
But when the drinking game's finished
No Guinness, just a clear glass
Seeing our real image mirrored back
The places that we go to cope, it's so strange
When we're older folks, it don't change
Trying to hang, we don't know the ropes
When we fall, we got more than our shoulders broke
It's no game
It's why we overdose on cocaine
Get our brains comatose, there's no blame
If you've ever know shame, known pain
Known days when it really don't feel ok
(Uh, okay)


Somewhere perfection lies
But not for you and I
Everybody trips sometimes
When cities fall like shacks
Walls eventually crack
Everybody breaks a glass
