lyrics

Swimming in the river with rocks in your pocket
Trying hard to break the surface but always scraping bottom
It’s time to take a deep breath and make the great escape
Stop looking in the mirror and drop that extra weight

You gotta
Just forget the guys who lie and cheat
You are not the one who’s incomplete

Everybody’s broken in one way or another
They just sweep up all the pieces and keep it undercover
There’s nothing wrong with you, no you don’t need another fix
Get back down to the basics and find a peg that fits

You gotta
Try and rise above the gutter boys
Separate yourself from all their noise

He’s a cop without a badge
A god without a plan
He’s a boy who loves his toys
And you are one of them
He built this prison with his own two hands
It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad, mad, mad, madman’s world

Don’t look inside for answers, have no shame
You’re not the problem, you are free of blame
Just forget the guys who lie and cheat
You are not the one who’s incomplete
