This is not the way it's
Supposed to be

Spend my day in fear of all
It sets me free

I beg your pardon
For what I do and say
I can hold myself to blame
But the sure remains the same

Will success fail me?
Will it make me free?
What they tell me I should want?
Is it what I need?

Hey mom, hey dad
The story went
Round the burning wheels of faith
It pays the rent

Hey sister, hey brother
I had to choose
Choose between the win and lose
But what's the use?

Will success fail me?
Will it make me free?
What they tell me I should want?
Is it what I need?

Come march come april
Come may and june
Let the pounding seconds go
There's nothing I can do

Will success fail me?
Will it make me free?
What they tell me I should want?
Is it what I need? (x 2)

Is there something I can do?
