You might as well surrender now
You'll never hold that stance
With all my words
I can't find one
To help you understand

It's not too late
Take up the cup
Put down your weapons and choose
But you say life's so unfair
All you say is life's so unfair.

Oh you can ill afford to hold to these views
Oh you need something to blame
But it's you, yes it's you
It's your truth

Someone made you
I don't know if you're sick
I comfort, you run away
My sympathy, you twist it.
Your reflex gets in the way.
You mother me, I son you.
You act up, I can't get through.

These footsteps so ancient.
In your eyes I'm your infant.
You're ancient, full circle.
In my eyes you're my infant.
Dead ball in our court,
We've got a dead fall in our court.

You just say life's so unfair
You just say life's so unfair
You need something to blame
But it's you, yes it's you
It's your truth
