Taking a backseat to my life
Seems like I'm always trying to find
Another excuse to justify failure
Planning to climb up every peak
The summit remains just out of reach
Graciously, I will just except defeat

Focusing on the final goal
Strategically giving up as I go
I'm blaming it all on you and not me
From all the heightened insecurities that feed
Your self destruction and your countless lies
And it's no surprise
I'm pausing my own life

Riddles are all I seem to find
Why don't you say what's on your mind
Instead of just dropping me a clue or two
Trading on up to finer things
You polished your act to suit your needs
Get me your bag I'll gladly help you pack

I won't be made a fool again
There's just no way I'm giving in
I'm keeping it all for me and not you
For all the aggravation that you put me through
Your selfish and materialistic ways
No it's time you paid
I'm starting up my life

Open road fills my soul, unwind
Leave the backseat behind unlock life's door
Now I break through to write the score
The rudiments I labored over years before
Have set me free igniting my desire
Fueling passion's fire
I'm living out my dreams
