Better Version Of Me
The nickel dropped
When I was on
My way beyond
The rubicon
What did I do?
And of the games that I can handle
None are ones worth a candle
What should I do?
I'm a frightened, fickle person
Fighting, crying, kicking, cursing
What should I do?
Oh, after all the folderol
And hauling over coals stops
What will I do?

Can't take a good day without a bad one
Don't feel just to smile until I had one
Where did I learn?
I make a fuss about a little thing
The rhyme is losing to the riddling
Where's the turn?
I don't want a home
I'd ruin that
Home is where my habits have a habitat
Why give it turn?
Oh, after all the folderol
And hauling over coals stops
What did I learn?

I am likely to miss the main event
If I stop to cry or complain again
So I will keep a deliberate pace
Let the damned breeze dry my face

Oh, mister, wait until you see
What I'm gonna be

I got a plan
A demand
And it just began
And if you're right, you'll agree
Here's coming a better version of me
Here it comes, a better version of me
Here it comes, a better version of me
