This is my final showdown. Because I'm done chasing. It's time I win the race and obtain my trophy.

Why is it I never get my chance?
My shot?
My grand entrance?
How come everyone seems to find what they want,
and yet I'm left with SQUAT?
While people get the person they want without even breaking a sweat,
I'm back here, holding 5 buckets full of blood, sweat, and tears.
While I gotta run 1000 miles just to even get a "maybe".
Not saying I'm not HAPPY with a maybe. It's the closest I've ever been.
But it makes me REALLY think....
What the fuck do I have to do to make that "maybe" a "yes"?
Am I really wasting my time?
Am I just chasing pavement?
Just running the clock until it hits 12, just when it will go back to where I started?
While he just sits and claps?
When did this trapeze act begin?
I'm stuck here walking backwards on my damn hands, bloodied and worn,
while he sits there and lotions his up.
I DO enjoy most of the things he says,
Most of the things he does,
and all the things he thinks.
But shit.
Don't I count for ANYTHING?
Don't I matter?
When do I come in and take the stage?
Like I'm some pawn in a sick game of chess.
I'm just there to be sacrificed so the KING can gain it's rightful place.
For once in my life I'm tired of waiting.
But why do I still keep waiting?
Am I stupid?
Do I have "dumbass" tattooed on my forehead?
Where I'd give him my WORLD,
but he wouldn't even give me the time of day?
Where's the sense in it anymore?
I'm finally starting to wise up to the games.
I'm through being a peasant in his society.
I'm through being a slave to his pharaoh.
From now ON, I REFUSE to play around anymore.
I'm just gonna do what I have to do.
This is the TRUE do or die time.
If I'm willing to give him my heart,
he's gonna either take it or give it back.
Plain and simple.
You want me to keep trying?
Isn't happening.
2 years worth of my life,
gone by within a second.
I'm getting them back now.
DONE!
