lyrics

Stumbled on the fine line
Between good and alright
Workshop dread and off with its head, cuz
It was better the first time
Lesson learned and outlined
Mapping every downside
Zip my lip like a mobius strip, cuz
It was better the first time

It’s a little bit shot and a little uphill
And it’s gonna go south until I’ve got to

Catch up to the deadline
Like a flower to sunshine
There's no doubt it'll psych me out, cuz
It was better the first time
Mastered every bird’s eye
Expert-read and tongue-tied
Open my mouth, let it all pour out, but
It was better the first time

It’s a little bit shot and a little uphill
And it’s gonna go south until I’ve got to row

My track is on the decline
Creeping to the coastline
It’s too late for an elegant state, cuz
It was better the first time
Not one loose end is untied
Nothing left to streamline
Yeah, perhaps it’ll never collapse, but
It was better the first time

It’s a little bit shot and a little uphill
And it’s gonna go south until I’ve got to row
