I left a tip, but it was never a donation
I took a trip, but it was never a vacation
I took a seat, but I refuse to take a number
And so, defeated, I proceeded unencumbered
I took her hand, but it was not in matrimony
I told my side, but it was never testimony
I turned and ran after ignoring my Miranda
I hid, she sought and caught me under the veranda

I'd say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of attention span

Spanning all the ages
Turning all the pages
The history of me is incomplete

Everything is Un-
Everything is Unfin-
Everything is Unfinished

I played along, but it was not for recreation
I left my home, but it was not evacuation
I made a pact that I would finish what I started
I admit the fact I was distracted and outsmarted

I'd say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of attention span

Everything is Un-
Everything is Unfin-
Everything is Unfinished
