lyrics
For just how long had I been wasting my life
Popping Crystale down on Avenue A?
We’d been lovers through tumultuous times
But the hand had never fit right in mine.
Don’t want more, I need all
I don’t want more, I need all

I don’t confuse the things that you make up
With things that you could have been
Your lies become their dreams

And when we try to reconcile for silly things we say and do
One voice that rises up and clear above the din
“The work gets hard, the work gets done,
To me there seems no other way”
But the day’s gone past, and the damage done
The end should justify the means

Exactly how awake do you need to be?
Be it meth, Taurine, cocaine of caffeine.
They say persistence is the essence of time
For half as long the candle burns twice as bright but
My limits know no limits
My limits know no limits

Don’t confuse the things that you make up
With things that you could have been
Your lies become their dreams
The weight of all came crashing in
It’s buckling your knees
Try as you may or might
To catch a falling star
You’ll find that gravity
Lands you back where you are
It’s just the weight
