Everybody Breaks a Glass
by Lights



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 gotta tell me something
You better go from the beginning.

We all forget to sleep and 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 or we are not worthy
However much you 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

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 then the drinking games finished.
No guinness just a clear glass
Real image mirrored back.
The places that we go to cope strange.
When we're older folks it don't change.
Hang.
We don't know the ropes.
When we fall we got more than our shoulders broke.
No game.
It's why we overdose on cocaine get our brains comatose
There's no blame.
If you've ever known shame, pain
Days when I really don't feel okay.

Somewhere perfection lies
But not for you and I.
Everybody trips some time.
When cities fall like shacks walls eventually crack
Everybody breaks a glass.
