Everybody Breaks a Glass
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 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 beers 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 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
