How does one decide
That the methods he's using,
They just don't jive
To truly believe and keep trying
Over and over again
Living in hopes,
That someday you'll be in with the winners

When will one change his mind
And jump the fence
For the dial a sign
Its a sad thing, its a bad thing
But so necessary
Living in hopes,
That someday you'll be in with the winners
