What will grow crooked, you can't make straight 
It's the price that you gotta pay
Do yourself a favor and pack you bags
Buy a ticket and get on the train 
Buy a ticket and get on the train 

 Cause this is fucked up, fucked up
 Cause this is fucked up, fucked up

 People get crushed like biscuit crumbs
And laid down in the bitumen 
You have tried your best to please everyone
But it just isn't happening 
No, it just isn't happening 

And it's fucked up, fucked up
And this is fucked up, fucked up
This your blind spot, blind spot
It should be obvious, but it's not.
But it isn't, but it isn't

You cannot kick start a dead horse 
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
 Cause I'm right here and I'm today 
With your fingers you can touch me

I'm your black swan, black swan
But I made it to the top, made it to the top
This is fucked up, fucked up

You are fucked up, fucked up
This is fucked up, fucked up

Be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up
