NO TAKERS

You know I’m doing this for your own good

But you’re not helping me the way you should

I shouldn’t always have to be your helping hand

I shout ideas but you drown them out

Give you a way but you constantly doubt

I shouldn’t always have to tell you stop and go


You’ve always said you want to be the best and live right now

It’s like you’re stuck in the attic never got to see the world go around


It’s been a whole year today since I have left you this way

Can we stop playing your games and please stop dragging me down

I put you in lost and found but there’s no takers today

I hate it when you’re around so please stop dragging me down


Our fingers locked turned out not enough

Fallen through into this patch of rough

You have no legs to hold you down

Rely too much on your superiors

Hard to remember the last time that you won

You always let everyone push you around


How many times have I told you that your life has gone astray

Lightest way I can put it is that it’s never going to be okay


It’s been a whole year today since I have left you this way

Can we stop playing your games and please stop dragging me down

I put you in lost and found but there’s no takers today

I hate it when you’re around so please stop dragging me down


Had to help you keep your ground cause you’re on a cliff edge not safe or sound

Always had to save you from the fall

I don’t wish this for myself or anyone else inside your world

Trying hard to keep you out of a stall


It’s been a whole year today since I have left you this way

Can we stop playing your games and please stop dragging me down

I put you in lost and found but there’s no takers today

I hate it when you’re around so please stop dragging me down


It’s been a whole year today since I have left you this way

Can we stop playing your games and please stop dragging me down

I put you in lost and found but there’s no takers today

I hate it when you’re around so please stop dragging me down
