Something New

Three three three minutes is all you need
ask for one more, we call that greed
let it out or keep it in
the rest of your time is about to begin
let’s win

I falter
face down, knee bent
begging at the altar
give me peace, a new lease
a reminder please

Double double up on the cinnamon roll
bring it to the pass and start the drum roll
(drum roll)
and they say what, no cereal bowl?
(say what, no cereal bowl?)

I know you expected more by now
but I always take longer at figuring out how
there’s sweat on my brow
don’t you see
this heat is too much for me

First one picked out of the crowd
thought I’d find voices just as loud
I was proud to go back down the road
but not all the way back to beginner mode
with training wheels, I move like a toad

I come out here to create something new
dingle dingle, maybe I’ll appease a few
but you and I know it’s not the same
string words together to assign the blame
won’t matter, it’s just a whole new ball game.

Somewhere I Belong – Linkin Park


About Paul

I think of my blog as an all-you-can-read buffet. There's something for everyone and complimentary mints at the door as you leave.
