"just do it again and this time with feeling"

Straylight Run
A Slow Descent

i'm tired
cynical and broken, but wiser
heavy with a sense of resentment
but i used to be so much different
i used to have so much faith
when i startedyou knew that i always meant it
i knew i could make a difference
i struggled to be heard
and then finally, one day people started listening
and i knew it
but as soon as it began it was ruined
a slow descent from unique to routine
over and over
"just do it again and this time with feeling"
the spotlightthe focus on the friends and the feelings
that made those stupid songs all worth singing
and don't you say a word
unless you're pretty sure that you want it analyzed
so we drovefor what seemed like days
over roadsand four lane highways
we said all we had to say
and i realized in time that it didn't mean anything
not ever again...
not like that
"it's only a matter of time"
