STREETLIGHT MANIFESTO


Failing, Flailing Lyrics

You say you've got the cure,
But I don't have a disease.
And you say you've got the answers,
But I've made no inquiries.
And you're failing, bailing,
Good God, motherfucker, now I hear you flailing.
I see you flailing,
That's right, I think I do,
I see you flailing away, away.

I know it's hard but so are you
And so am I and we'll pull through together, together.
And I said that it's been years but still I fear
That someone dear will leave me here forever, forever
And I said: "Hey!"

Hey, you've got to keep trying,
You've got to keep holding onto what you've got
Because what you've got it sure ain't a lot.
And hey!
Everyone's falling down,
Everyone's holding out for what you've got,
But what you've got, it sure ain't a lot.
And you act like it is but you know that it's not,
And even if it was, would you ever give it up
If I told you what you had was really nothing?
Nothing? Nothing!
Yes, it's nothing, nothing at all.

Well, you say your life's a bore
And I can't quite disagree,
If you judge your life by the pieces of shit that inhabit your TV.
Because they stand so proud, and they talk too loud
And every other word is a lie.
I've found that everyone who is anyone is a waste of time,
A waste of time.

I know it's hard but so are you
And so am I and we'll pull through together, together.
And I said that it's been years but still I fear
That someone dear will leave me here forever, forever
And I said: "Hey!"

Hey, you've got to keep trying,
You've got to keep holding onto what you've got
Because what you've got it sure ain't a lot.
And hey!
Everyone's falling down,
Everyone's holding out for what you've got,
But what you've got, it sure ain't a lot.
And you act like it is but you know that it's not,
And even if it was, would you ever give it up
If I told you what you had was really nothing?
Nothing? Nothing!
Yes, it's nothing, nothing at all.

Nothing,
You won't say nothing,
You won't say nothing,
And that's just fine.
Nothing,
You won't say nothing,
You won't say nothing,
And that's just fine.

Sticks and stones may break my bones
But names will never hurt me,
And it's been years but still I fear that someday they'll desert me.
Oh, it's hard, I know,
When it's time to stand alone
And no one understands you.

Sticks and stones may break my bones
But names will never hurt me,
And it's been years but still I fear that someday they'll desert me.
Oh, it's hard, yes I know,
When it's time to stand alone
And no one understands you.

Sticks and stones may break my bones
But names will never hurt me,
And it's been years but still I fear that someday they'll desert me.
Oh, it's hard, I know,
When it's time to stand alone
And no one understands you.
