Lyrics:

The worst part is
I don’t know how I’m gonna stand
Unless I’m showing you off
To passing cars when they see that I’ve got your hand
If in a few month’s time
You’ve gone and found yourself a plan
And it don’t involve me
Then I might not pack my bags and leave the foreign lands

If you see me rip my price tag off
Then it’s because I’m sold
If your words get stolen by someone
Then it’s because they’re gold

The worst part is never really getting to
That Sacred Focus ’cause I feel out of place
With every new wall I walk through
