down lyrics – jawbreaker

this is the world, why are you waiting?
everyone’s standing by hesitating
so many people halfway there
between two points in the middle of nowhere

and all those things you thought you’d be
did you know that it doesn’t come free?
have you seen yourself of late?

standing still beside the kill
have you really got your fill?
time to try for more than that

at times your feet they seem to slide
never stop, never break your stride
and if you slip you can get up
that’s the wonder of the winner’s cup

put your foot down into the shaky ground
p*ss around a circle and make it sound
look around, see the people lying down
listen now, can’t you hear the sound of…

machines all breaking down, the fuel is running out
the severed lines destroyed by too much time spent down
my head forced down, my hope forced down
between my legs, i come unwound

all my preaching stems from fear
you’re my concern, i hold you dear
you must break out of this old cage
do it now, this is no longer safe

and all those things you thought you’d be
did you know that it doesn’t come free?
have you seen yourself of late?

standing still beside the kill
have you really got your fill?
time to try for more than that
