Whoa-o... I've been banging my head against the wall
Whoa-o... For so long it seems I knocked it down, yeah it got knocked down
Whoa-o... And the heating bill went through the roof
Whoa-o... And the wall I knocked down was the proof
That my landlord needed to kick me out

I got evicted now I'm living on the street
My spirits lifted... Oh wait, that wasn't me
Too many turns have turned out to be wrong
This time I learned that, I knew it all along

When car crashes occur
Then i'll be what you were
When I see what I should
When I see that it's good (that it's good)

To experience the bittersweet
To taste defeat
Then brush my teeth
Experience the bittersweet
To taste defeat
Then brush my teeth

Cause I struggle with forward motion
I struggle with forward motion
We all struggle with forward motion
Cause forward motion is harder than it sounds
Well everytime I gain some ground
I gotta turn myself around again
It's harder than it sounds
Well everytime I gain some ground
I gotta turn myself around again

Whoa-o... I've been banging my head against the wall
Whoa-o... For so long it seems I got knocked out. Yeah, I got knocked out cold
Whoa-o... And the medical bills went through the roof
Whoa-o... And the scar on my head is the proof
That i'll still remember this when I get old

I got evicted now I'm living on the street
My spirits lifted... Oh wait, that wasn't me
Too many turns have turned out to be wrong
This time I learned that, I knew it all along

When I grasp the concept
Then i'll sleep where you slept
When I know I need help
When I allow myself (allow myself)

To experience the bittersweet
To taste defeat
Then brush your teeth
Experience the bittersweet
To taste defeat
Then brush your teeth

Cause I struggle with forward motion
I struggle with forward motion
We all struggle with forward motion

Cause forward motion is harder than it sounds
Well everytime I gain some ground
I gotta turn myself around again
It's harder than it sounds
Well everytime I gain some ground
I gotta turn myself around again

Cause I struggle with forward motion
Cause I struggle with forward motion
We all struggle with forward motion

[in background:]
(cause forward motion is harder than it sounds.
Well everytime I gain some ground
I gotta turn myself around again
Cause forward motion is harder than it sounds
Well everytime I gain some ground
I gotta turn myself around again)

Cause I struggle with forward motion
Cause I struggle with forward motion
We all struggle with forward motion

Cause I struggle with forward motion
Cause I struggle with forward motion
We all struggle with forward motion
