I'm doing all I can to hold ground Any second now I'll go down If there's one thing I can explain Have you noticed I don't change? If I don't get involved It won't be my fault When I kiss you square in the mouth There is something I can't ignore When I find myself on the floor And the explanation I lend Is made up of words I invent If I don't get involved It won't be my fault When I kiss you square in the mouth Please forgive me if I lose my place It is tough to maintain this pace And if I can't learn how to behave You will send me to a early grave If I don't get involved It won't be my fault When I kiss you square in the mouth Although I'm boiling over inside When I look you straight in the eye I've had plenty of time to prepare For the secret sent in your stare

I'm making a list of things to do And right at the top is you But you're crossed out Then I'll go for an hour at the gym Instead I'll watch a film I can't get up Next is the bill for the credit card I guess I'll pay at least part But not today I'll do all the laundry and clean the house To help me forget about My awful state I really need to find a new job I'll die I swear to god If I don't try Down at the bottom I see your name How'd you get back on again? I've lost my mind

If I could get rid of this debt I'd be better off Instead of being terrible It'd be just tolerable There'd be no troubles I'd have no problems If I could get a better paying job I'd be better off Instead of being terrible It'd be just tolerable There'd be no troubles I'd have no problems I'd pay my debts If I would have gone to college I'd be better off Instead of being terrible It'd be just tolerable There'd be no troubles I'd have no problems I could get a good job I'd pay my debts If my mother wasn't so dang poor I'd be better off Instead of being terrible It'd be just tolerable There'd be no troubles I'd have no problems I'd have a degree I could get a good job I'd pay my debts If my father didn't abandon our family I'd be better off Instead of being terrible It'd be just tolerable There'd be no troubles I'd have no problems We wouldn't have been poor I'd have a degree I could get a good job I'd pay my debts If my parents would have used protection I'd be better off Instead of being terrible It'd be just tolerable There'd be no troubles I'd have no problems I wouldn't hate my dad We wouldn't have been poor I'd have a degree I could get a good job I'd pay my debts And when my numbers line up I'll be better off Instead of being terrible It'll be just tolerable There'll be no troubles I'll have no problems I'll make up with my dad My kids won't be poor I won't need a degree You can stuff this job I'll pay my debts I've paid my dues

History I regret Persecuted Jew I can clearly see Gave his life for me Why do I forget? I belong to you I'm a lifetime member Love that's always true No one else around Eyes faced towards the ground When I remember I belong to you Many times I retreat Cling to something new Vacant in my eyes It is no surprise I have to repeat I belong to you So close to victory I am almost through Find me near the fuse Thinking it's no use Someone remind me I belong to you History I regret Persecuted Jew I can clearly see Gave his life for me Why do I forget? I belong to you

I've already forgotten this war And I never knew where or what for But one night while brushing my feelings aside I thought maybe there's not enough dyin' I do not know any of the killed But at this rate I eventually will Somewhere a family is holding their pride Thinking maybe there's not enough dyin' In between weather and sports Tuned out through daily reports It's another good reason to help you decide That maybe there's not enough dyin' Our leaders are dancing like flies Won't make the same mistake twice Toss leftover handouts for us to divide Because maybe there's not enough dyin' Maybe there's not enough dyin' Maybe there's not enough dyin' I'll say it again 'cause it's not quite sunk in Maybe there's not enough dyin' Where have the protesters gone? And somebody tell me how long Till experts will say that the numbers have lied And maybe there's too many dyin'

I'm not ready yet To break down Silence I'm still reading up Working out Practice But if your stakes are found On this stone Cancel And if you'd stick around I'd be so Thankful I like being cursed Left behind Crippled I may be unsure We'll get by Simple 'Cause this is my last chance To remove Garbage And with this minor change We will lose Our baggage More Than Once I've Said The Word Love Though I Know I Did Not Mean To So For Next Time When I Say Love Make Me Eat It Till I See You There is no hosanna, no hosanna Where is my hosanna, no hosanna Take me to hosanna, no hosanna Make me hear hosanna, hosanna

The company stock just fell like a rock and I'm busted My condo was sold, SUVs getting old, and I'm busted I've got no DVDs and no DSL Don't bother calling, they canceled my cell Sometimes I think it'd be better in hell than be busted
