How can I trust you if I can't trust myself?

I

Have become

Somewhat numb

Through the years

And I

Have lost sight

Of my goals

Through my fears

I

Am on trial

For my life

Before my peers

And I

Have grown wise

Through expectations

From the cheers

Hello

Good morning

Oh now I've really got to go

I've done my bit

I've said some shit

And now I'd like to get back home

Y'know

I was up all night

Just trying to fight

The day

I want one time

That I'll survive

Without the pain

Y'know

I was up all night

In a house with no stairs

I pawned them off

The simple steps

Are the ones that have me scared

And

I've used my friends

And I've

Stolen some bread

I learn from the tube

I have and attitude

And I'll take it out on you

And

I've used my friends

Any time they defend

Me

I kick them out

Of my life

I think I like my misery

I

Have become

Somewhat numb

Through the years

And I

Have lost sight

Of my goals

Through my fears

I

Am on trial

For my life

Before my peers

And I

Have grown wise

Through expectations

From the cheers
