We find ourselves descending You're all the good things that I shouldn't have We can stop pretending We're at a precipice and looking back With only finite patience How much longer can we last? We're stopping at old stations Unwanted relics of the past I'm trying to ablate it It's hard to conceive of, like a tesseract I wish I could navigate it I could avoid it if I could react With only finite patience How much longer can we last? We're stopping at old stations Unwanted relics of the past We'll stuff the thoughts all down until they disappear Become invisible But they're still there

How do you do it? You keep me on board After everything I keep coming back for more Now, it's been forever But you're still on my mind I should just forget you But your essence is with me all of the time Memories I've been trying to erase Too bad they're not as pretty as your face When I finally see you Regrets in your hair Oh so maladjusted Worse for the wear I still lose my balance My stomach sinks Stillness in your absence But you still appear to me out of sync Memories I've been trying to erase Too bad they're not as pretty as your face

Sick of feeling bored You're through with being dull, you don't want to be ignored Try another guise You're wearing out mantras, trying them on for size Gone out the window You're looking for someone else to be Scared to be yourself Maybe someday you'll notice You can't please them all The things you say and do can't please them all But all you want to do is please them all The things you say and do can't please them all But all you want to do Is shift phase to phase And if it strikes a nerve, then you'll go your separate ways Meet face to face Well, you can wear the façade, but you'll still feel out of place Gone out the window You're looking for someone else to be Scared to be yourself Maybe somebody'll tell you You can't please them all The things you say and do can't please them all But all you want to do is please them all The things you say and do can't please them all But all you want to do is please them all

If I had the right To say my piece without a fight Then maybe you would see the light But it doesn't matter It's no good if you Can't see it from my point of view I'm trying to get my feelings through But it doesn't matter On eggshells This pressure's Too much for me No relief Disbelief We're out at sea Anything I try Is not enough for you I'm doing the best that I can do So where'd it all go astray? It suddenly gave way Picking up the pieces just to throw them all away I just can't go on Pretending that my fears have gone Pretending that you're never wrong But it doesn't matter I can't trust myself So why should anybody else? I put my feelings on the shelf 'Cause it doesn't matter Defeated Repeated All my mistakes These eggshells I can tell Are about to break Anything I try Is not enough for you I'm doing the best that I can do So where'd it all go astray? It suddenly gave way Picking up the pieces just to throw them all away
