childman, thats what you am

it has its ups and downs
leave a line on your face
when you smile
or laugh and frown
it wasnt made for you
you must try
leave a line in the place
where you were to yourself true

you're the one who makes it impossible
you're the one
puts up your own obstacle
you blind yourself, cut your losses
and grieve
the death of what's alive
the letter not received

childman, thats what you am

you couldn't see, you could only look
the words you said came from the copybook
the words you bought and sold
had them down cold
but what you wrote in your name
cannot be played the same

you know you cant afford to be late
the price is higher the longer you wait
and if you'll try
you'll see twice as much
with your eyes open all the way
you'll turn a deeper touch

cloud crowd
you can't even it out
you will stand up when you know you can

you know you're not really so innocent
you cant say you always had good intent
and the powers of the bad
they did what they could
to make you do only the things that felt good
