lyrics

Oh you scramble up the staircase ever racing to the top
Just to find when you arrive there, it's just a drop and
Down you go, down you fall
Holding to the self opinion

You were never who you thought you were
You were never who you believed yourself to be
You were never in the race you ran so hard to win
You were never who you thought you were

I am questioning and challenging the presence of your mind
As you grip onto the banister and stepping out you find that
Down you go, down you fall
Holding to your poor self image

You were never who you thought you were
You were never who you believed yourself to be
You were never in the race you ran so hard to win
You were never who you thought you were

In the singing of these thoughts
There's enough to make me cry
In the singing of these thoughts
There's a hole as deep as a well
In the darkness of these thoughts
I know there's water down there somewhere
If I look into that water I will see
(I was never who I thought I was)

Masterminding my undoing I'm the only one to blame
Because the more I love these stairs I climb the deeper goes my shame as
Down I go, down I fall
Holding to my poor self image
Wanting more than I deserve
To win this little game of scrimmage
Someone tap me on the shoulder
Tell me that this game is over

You were never who you thought you were
You were never who you believed yourself to be
You were never in the race you ran so hard to win
You were never who you thought you were
