lyrics

Isn't it funny
To think about all the things that make us sad
Like losing dreams
And kisses that don't mean anything
What does it bring

Isn't it funny
To think about all the things that make us cry
Like family
And the one time that your best friend lied
What does it bring

It’s time to sit down and reflect
The misdeeds you can't correct
We've all had our missteps
Our shoelaces are ragged
And our hearts are rabid
Have the faces become wood
To burn if you could
You won't say goodbye though you should
The fire will pass by where you stood
It’s an opportunity and it's good
But it's hotter than what you're prepared to do
It's a realization as you stare into the bayou
That you must lower your expectations
And I've seen that It brings hardship at such a fast clip
It’s broken pride it’s a busted lip
See the wheelchair is your new bridle and horse bit
So how will you control yourself at this high idle
When the words you say don't fit
And the motion in your legs is nonexistent
Would you say boredom is an emotion you feel but can’t vent
The memories sealed and vacant
Friends you can't remember
Nor how the time’s spent
You give in easy now like rag doll, it seems to be the only constant

I am a chauffeur
This life is over
Drive where you want to
I can't take you there

Your arms hurts when you twist
An even the best docs and psychiatrists can't
Help answer why me why this
They still think ignorance is bliss
Did you tell them all the things that you missed
