lyrics

I get up
I go to work
I’m wearing smiles
A cup of coffee gives me the nerve

Then I’ll get home
A stepping stone
I’d feel alive but I live alone

And he’s acid fried
She’s on a diet
We're getting along not so well

No one loved me quite like you
No one hates me like I do
I played the longing game too long
Now it’s catching on

I’m only sinking where I stand

Now I
Can feel the break
It’s gonna take
Not sure how much longer I can fake

My every move
I’m singing mute
It’s right on time but overdue

I’m feeling able
She’s standing stable
We’re getting along not so well

I don’t question this existence
But will the answer make a difference
I played the longing game too long
Now it’s catching on

I’m only sinking where I stand

Don’t repeat the words and haven’t-you-heard’s
It’s all that there seems to be
If everything is easy then why do you make it so difficult?

Don’t fall back in line
While calling on mind’s to speak
Only for ears oblique
If everything is simple then why do you make it so typical?

I’m only sinking where I stand
It’s only where I stand
