Every once in awhile
I get tangled up on my loose ends
And I strangle myself
On promises made to old friends

Just once he'd like
To take one step forward not two steps back
Like the drops in the bucket balanced on his back
The little things add up so fast

In every sense of the word
His life has become effortless
Like pride it's easy to swallow
But it's difficult to digest

Just once he'd like
To take one step forward not two steps back
Like the drops in the bucket balanced on his back
The little things add up so fast

Didn't learn a thing
You wallow and still cling
To your mistakes
Like they're precious memories

Never gave enough
Thought that you were tough
But you were weak
And I have no sympathies

My opinion may not necessarily represent
All the thoughts and attitudes of those I've grown to resent
But from time to time I take a step back and reflect
On the self destroying ideals I once fought to protect

Every once in awhile
I get tangled up on my loose ends
And I strangle myself
On promises made to old friends

Just once he'd like
To take one step forward not two steps back
Like the drops in the bucket balanced on his back
The little things add up so fast

Didn't learn a thing
You wallow and still cling
To your mistakes
Like they're precious memories

Never gave enough
Thought that you were tough
But you were weak
And I have no sympathies
