crane lyrics – jawbreaker

takes a crane to pick me up
a twenty gallon coffee cup
a metal flag to move my brow
indelible is my color now

forever is the time it takes
to get me going, can you wait?
i’ll be along any year
progress slowed by heightened fear

i got a broken crown
i went from king to clown
don’t think i’m down
a fool’s got so much less to lose

i see your tower’s tall
but that ain’t all
you can rise above
it’s that much further you must fall

i see your life’s a race i can’t run
you curse the man who fired the gun
concrete socks and cement shoes
the race was fixed, i’m gonna lose it

there’s danger in a desperate man
watch yourself, i’m panicking
i know my time is almost done
it’s now or never, never comes

we’re young yet
too young to regret it
i see you play it safe
if you had a dime, i bet you wouldn’t bet it

well that’s cool
what’s advice from a fool?
just hear me out
this is what i’m all about

twenty-one in need of fun, growing old
in a band to understand a f*cked up world
twenty-two it could be through, enlist now
no one knows where it is going, but it’s up from down

could well be i’m full of sh*t
saying never guarantees it
still i’m not some posi creep
reality, my soul do keep

living on the brighter side
living only half a life
i keep my feet tied to the ground
i let my head go wander around

i got a broken crown
i went from king to clown
don’t think i’m down
a fool’s got so much less to lose

i see your tower’s tall
but that ain’t all
you can rise above
it’s that much further you must fall
