Success

This song is by Linda Perry and appears on the album In Flight (1996).

This is not the way it's
Supposed to be

Spend my day in fear of all
It sets me free

I beg your pardon
For what I do and say
I can hold myself to blame
But the sure remains the same

Will success fail me?
Will it make me free?
What they tell me I should want?
Is it what I need?

Hey Mom, Hey Dad
The story went
Round the burning wheels of faith
It pays the rent

Hey sister, hey brother
I had to choose
Choose between the win and lose
But what's the use?

Will success fail me?
Will it make me free?
What they tell me I should want?
Is it what I need?

Come March come April
Come may and June
Let the pounding seconds go
There's nothing I can do

Will success fail me?
Will it make me free?
What they tell me I should want?
Is it what I need? (x 2)

Is there something I can do?
