Lyrics

I'm still like a blade of grass waiting for a morning shower
I'm swimming in a sea of doubt surveying my future
Seems like every road I take always leads me back to nowhere
Feels like I'm riding a wave pulling me under
Often I feel strangled by others views pushed on me
I’ll make my own choices in my own time
Maybe it’s my excuse to avoid the simple truth
Could be I’ve been getting in my own way
When the world seems out of focus
And the mountains are too high to climb
We look through rose-colored glasses
at our beautiful neurosis
Sometimes I'm running so fast; I can't catch up to myself
Somedays I'm pushing so hard; I can't seem to breathe
What's this elusive thing that I am always after?
What will I sacrifice to finally succeed?
When the world seems out of focus
And the mountains are too high to climb
We look through rose-colored glasses
at our beautiful neurosis
No one understands me, like we all speak another language
Maybe words would make more sense if we spoke them more slowly
I'm tired of sitting here watching everyone on the playground
You can't win if you never play the game so I better get busy
When the world seems out of focus
And the mountains are too high to climb
We look through rose-colored glasses
at our beautiful neurosis.
When the world seems out of focus
And the mountains too high to climb
We look through rose-colored glasses
at our beautiful...
