I could keep the whole folder in the trash bin That would save a couple seconds worth of stashing Not even a flash in the pan, just another couple Fruitless ruins of a burnt-out passion Looking up to millionaires, playing stupid and contagious Are you actually good, or are you just famous? And is he who's neither anything to hold highly? Am I a cynic who sees, or am I just whiny? Some jealous teenager renegade Wrapped up in his own thoughts, skull like cellophane Stubbornly refusing the gravy train, praying for his takeoff And way too young to relate this much to Aesop I must've failed in like ten of my past lives Baptized in dread of never getting past the landmines Wired like a rabid magpie, no standby Black belt master of the self-dimmed gaslight Finds a way to beat himself up with his hands tied Registered as failure if there ain't no landslide Screen is still a clean slate, desk a fucking crash site Might or might not've had a breakdown last night (Might have) 'Cause the mix's all wrong The drums not strong enough, but still too loud F*ck this song I sound just like a six-year-old The f*ck's this voice? Get out my throat Before I rip it out My flatline's prolly offkey Wish they cared enough to hate, who listens when I scream "get off me"? All I have is a button labeled self destruct And a speedometer starting at thousand miles per hour And counting up Spear and the shield Clash of the massive ego with no grasp of the real And the wall of self-doubt, desperate to conceal Whatever talent lost in a fight of idle and zeal So I hide and I seek Waste when I'm strong and try when I'm weak Rinse and repeat Can I catch a second to breathe? I've barely started marching And I'm planning out a retreat Quiet defeat
