Here we go again:
Around and around and around
Going nowhere fast.
Never slowing down, never slowing down
Always on the mend.
Tiptoeing over glass, I bleed
My feet burn in the sand.
I should have seen it coming.
I'm the king of the second chance.

Here we go again.
We like to pretend we had a good relationship
Built over time
But over time the storm got worse
The seas grew rough.
And the ship went down
With no lifeboats
And plenty of blame to pass around.

Here we go again
And this time it's no different from the last ten times
The game changed, the scales tipped
The kettle is screaming out for some relief
And my throat is sore, my head is numb
My eyes see red, finally my lungs explode
We should have seen it coming
But we didn't, so...
