just when you think you’ve got a plan the world hands you something you can’t understand and you try and you try, but you’re not wired that way if you laugh or you cry, if you love or you hate: it’s all the same ‘cause you live, then you die, and you may find out why or maybe you won’t but it’s all in your roots and like all of the trees, we stem from our seeds maybe it hurts but the pain is what the soil needs and i don’t want to do this safely i don’t want to hold out before i begin i’m not looking for any shelter and i won’t whisper anything that i could yell when your moment is calling you need to let them in yeah, you’re waiting for something to happen... just fail and then make amends just try and then try, until your wired your own way

lately i find it hard to pretend that i haven't been thinking of ways it will end there's something that i don't see i might be someone that i can't be over and over i play the part and over and over i go back to start there's something that i don't see and all of this time i thought i believed i would heed this "something" that i'd never seek (before it grazed my eyes) and this life, it has a way, of sending you astray but i played the part and been back to start again then i reached ahead to pull out my eyes... and then the sky became a scene, and i felt as if time no longer moved ahead, in spite of me and my wait for "something" would never be over... now my role is that much smaller and i can't give my hands to another fucked and broken righteous ideal (a heavier load for someone else to bear), now i see that this world may never change but my heart beats on just the same
you never get what you need but what you need is what you have outside of what is meant, you say what's all been said we never get what we need but what we need is what we have reaction is how to lead but non-action is how to act i can't pave a way i can't speak a fact this mind must be tamed and these words i should retract but i sing and i smile and in your light i see my own, it was hardly ever apart now picture all the other people we always considered too far...or gone i won't say the way this mute tongue is intact when ambitions start to fade, there's no more to ask 'cause you never get what you need but what you need is what you have.
