They always told me
In the begining there was life
There was sin that was only
A story to explain
The state we're in
Gotta lie it's not your own
Need to take care of your home
Got a calling get some feeling
You got a family now
[Chorus:]
Now do you think you're too poor
The only one that wants you
Wants to be loved by you
And everyone around you
Can you even entertain
A thought that it's yourself to blame
I know that it's killing you
Just to hear this from me
I always warned you
When life's upon you -
Struggle before you run in
Every moments loose your focus
And fell to breathe in
It's not the place nor the time
You just start to change your mind
Gotta hold it down
You got a family now
Stand and be proud
[Chorus:]
Now do you think you're too cool
For the only one that wants you
Wants to be loved by you
And everyone around you
Can you even entertain
A thought that it's yourself to blame
I know that it's killing you
Just to hear this from me
I know that it's killing you
To hear this from me
You got the one of a kind
And that's all you should mind
How much life will you claim
Your ideas need to change
And o-o-oh, I came to say
I came to fight
With the pain they feel
'Cause of family name
[Chorus:]
Now do you think you're too cool
For the only one that wants you
Wants to be loved by you
And everyone around you
Can you even entertain
A thought that it's yourself to blame
I know that it's killing you
Just to hear this from me
I know that it's killing you
To hear this from me
