Standing O


How can you tell

You're under a spell

You're compromised

You're miles away

Slow

How can you know

When you're aiming low

There's nothing in your heart

Don't feel it in your soul

No standing O O O

Maybe you've noticed I'm ashamed

Of anything that I've done

Maybe you've noticed I'm not the same

As almost anyone

Why can't you see

You look funny to me

You trip and fall

I catch it all

O

How can you know

When you're aiming low

You're curling up

You're crawling now

No Standing O O O

Maybe you're saying no this time

Dance right around my bones

It's o.k. I'll be fine

I won't follow you home

Instead I turn my mood on a dime

I'm finally off of my back

I come from a long, long line

I mope and I cry and attack

OW OW

How can you tell

You're under a spell

Compromised

Miles away

No standing O O O

Maybe you've noticed I'm not afraid

Of everything that I've done

Maybe you've noticed I'm not the same

As almost anyone

Instead turn my mood on a dime

I'm finally off of my back

I come from a long, long line

I mope and I cry and attack

How can you tell

How can you tell
