Just when I thought
I had handled solace
I could soften my guard behind false confidence

Just when I felt
Humbled by insipid
Except from this blind-side and from reading a script
'Cause I am seduced by reaction and under the influence

I'm slipping again 
I'm up to old tricks off my wagon
I have no defense 
I'm wreaking havoc
Wreaking havoc and consequence

I get reduced by my own willfulness
As I reach for my usual god replacements
'Cause I am rich with sanction and lax in my steps

I'm slipping again
I'm up to old tricks off my wagon
I have no defense 
I'm wreaking havoc
Wreaking havoc and consequence

If forgiveness is understanding that I
Affirming a compact for the millionth time
From this tumbling house of cards of mine

I am beaten by my impulsiveness
By this uncanning foreshadowing of regret
'Cause I'm repulsed by restriction at least that's my excuse

I'm slipping again 
I'm up to old tricks off my wagon
I have no defense
I'm wreaking havoc
Wreaking havoc and consequence

I'm slipping again 
I'm up to old tricks off my wagon
I have no defense
I'm wreaking havoc
Wreaking havoc and consequence
