about

This is a song about being around people who are negative and condemn others for making mistakes.

lyrics

You can do your best,
Have what it takes,
Just to find out you're only as good as your last mistake,
Well, I don't believe that,
Where are the facts?
A single human error defines all future acts?

That a lapse in concentration is rewarded by punishment?
A severe penalty for poor judgement?
That every good thing that you ever did,
That one thing you did wrong just ruins it?

It's hard to make a decision when there's so many choices,
It's hard to get my point across with this many voices,
Well, I'll just change my point of view.

If I try and I fail then what's the point?
But then again I might avoid a reproach.

It's hard to make a decision when there's so many choices,
It's hard to get my point across with this many voices,
Well, I'll just change my point of view,
Blindly go along with you.

But I'd just get nothing done if I lived in fear of getting things wrong,
And people love to jump on you to disguise the fact that they live in fear too.

It's hard to make a decision when there's so many choices,
It's hard to get my point across with this many voices,
Well, I'll just change my point of view,
Blindly go along with you,
Bite my tongue, swallow my pride,
Convince myself I never lied,
Just submit become a sheep,
With a guilty conscience, never sleep,
A shadow of my former self,
Just overwhelmed.
