Whatever It Takes, Right

I try my best
To pass all tests
And struggle to survive
I clean the mess
Of what's left by the rest
Still I can't hold it all inside

I try to live the kinda life
That keeps my sanity in sight
But at every curve a new blindside
And at every cross, I get denied
Never enough no matter how much
Always tough, regardless of what
I do my best
To be myself
I just get left
On a broken shelf
Falling through the cracks
Of this house of shattered glass
Left in the wake of the destruction left behind
Left to fend in the shadows of the night

Nothing is ever good enough, right
No matter how hard I try
Do whatever it takes, right
No matter how many times
I'm left alone to realize
That I'm the only one left behind

Never say never when you lie
Never be the one to shade the light
Always do whatever it takes, right
To make sure everyone else who matters gets what they want in this life
Don't worry though, the ones who matter won't let you fall into the great divide
