I’ve been thinking too much
About how I’m never good enough,
How I’m always falling short
Of the shit I want the most.
How I never seem to matter,
I can never get things done,
How I’m always a stepping-stone
Not the first, nor the last one.
My feelings and opinions
Are always too big or too small,
And I just keep falling short
While the others are rising tall.
My two worlds are divided
And they keep getting further away,
Every time I want to change shit,
Me, myself, I betray.
I always wonder “what if”,
I think about the past, the future, and such,
And then I remember:
Fuck, I’ve been thinking too much.
