Late To Your Own Bonfire

from by When It Counts



Take a look in the mirror and tell me what you see
Friends tell you to listen, but you ignore their plea
You’re so codependent, but you hate everyone you meet
Keep stewing in jealousy and your sense of defeat

Quit again, see if I care
I’m numb to this, it’s happened too many times

Spend years craving change,
And now you’re too scared to change anything at all
Lazy to a fault and bitter to a point of no return
Search your past to find someone to blame
But you know it’s you all along, you know it’s true

The names will change and faces fade, but people stay the same
But my problems stay the same

I’m sick of writing the same songs over again
I couldn’t bring myself to say this
One year later and nothing’s changed at all
Was there even a point at all
I swore that twelve months has brought me progress
Lately my life has been a mess

Keep bitchin’ to a crowd of zero, where’s your passion
What happened to your devotion, take charge, take action
‘Cause you need help, you’re just fine
You never decide for yourself
I couldn’t bring myself to say this
I’ve always hit the concrete face first
Time to pack up and start over

Nothing can define you
Start over, pick a side
