we have tried and failed
we have stumbled and fallen
we have tried a new taste and spit it back out
we have taken a left turn when we meant to turn right
we lost sight of our origins
but our past never lost sight of us
it's not emulation - cause that's not this hard
not imitation - cause that won't take you far
not digression - cause I'm falling straight up
it is progression - I'm not afraid to stand up
I don't know what is expected
but I expected it to be great
I said "I'm trying my hardest"
but he didn't like the tape
take a look at what you're doing
and tell me I'm too late
you say we're walking backwards
well, that dead horse sure can run
the truth
I know I can
I know I will
I know -I know what I have to do
and now you'll listen
and I hope it won't hurt
I've seen your poison
you've done your worst
I've seen your better
and I can't believe it's true
you've lost the truth that used to live inside of you
