You are an idiot I am just watching it
Pour right out of your hole
Sophomoric, but too late to call it
You said it out loud for us all
Now it’s right there waiting for you
Where you dropped it, drunk on your stool
You can’t talk right. Trying to walk right
I am an idiot, I’m done ignoring it. Overdoing it all.
The stupid decisions are crazy and starting to rub my face on the wall
Now the outcome is waiting for me. And it’s got roots just like this damn tree
I can talk right. Trying to walk right.
Now you’re behind the walling and people are calling
They think you know nothing but there wrong you know something
You play like your’e sleeping, ‘cause you enjoy the creeping up
Into the surprise and the brightness in their eyes
Now let’s stop there and think what is true
What you said when drunk on your stool
Trying to talk right. When you can’t even walk right.
