One, two, three, go!

You had it coming for so long
You break your back can't do no wrong
Blinded by storms in your mind
Fine halo nailed it to yourself
The fuck ups must be someone else
Can't look for what you might find
Once more you're running around in circles just to prove
You knew the answers all the while
Can't figure why no matter what you say or do
Things stay the same you will remain
Day late a dollar short
Day late a dollar short

So take each jab square on the chin
Clutch at your bleeding heart within
Scapegoat stepped on and deprived
As cars thin out on barren streets
Oiled pavement grabbing at your feet
Promised distinction twice denied

(Now Listen) You're always hanging on to last year's next big thing
A top ten list of fads gone by
You greet each tourists smile with lines and borrowed clothes
A liar's game you will remain
Day late a dollar short
Day late a dollar short

Hog-tied and hanging from
Your cross don't it feel fun?
Takin' names just ain't the same
With just yourself to blame come on

Once more you're runnin' round in circles just to prove
You knew the answers all the while
Can't figure why no matter what you say or do
Things stay the same you will remain
Day late a dollar short
Day late a dollar short
Day late a dollar short
Day late a dollar short
