Challenges You to a Game of Basketball EP

Gather 'round Listen close Here's an observation Set up like a sermon but said with uncertainty But that's a trap! That's a trope! That's a complication Call it "access has its virtues But so does obscurity" Out of breath And on call Out of allies and alcohol It's all the same when you're starving for sympathy But that's a jab! That's a joke That's a job description Call it "passion is a virtue But so is proficiency" But how to express under duress? I can't speak from where I'm supposed to be And recant rumors and rants starting "supposedly...." "Not your best" I know I just wanted to let it go And let on that this has occurred to me But I could snap! I can't cope I could call it off and call it "patience is a virtue But it's not maturity So get down, get down! (I'm already down!) Get down, get down! (I don't wanna get down!) Get down, get down! I've confessed I propose we're ready to go

Wait a minute I'm fielding the failures of hindsight How to spin it? The feeling is wrong but it's coming out right So stand down! If you can't stand apart from your place You can't stand to part with your pace And slow down Admit it - you couldn't sit still How did I lose my voice? I suffered with every choice "Sound certain and make it up" But knowing is not enough When the road's so rough And it's been a long time coming home Maybe, lately I'm playing the part of the playwright Call me crazy I'm calling it art but it's heartless and trite So sit down! If you can't stand and argue your case You're back where you started so Make it stop You catch your breath and you let it drop For one sweet second But what do you do when the clock starts ticking? How did I lose my voice? I suffered with every choice "Sound certain and make it up" But "sorry" is not enough When you say that stuff And then you're off and running home, alone Forget it, you've made your own bed to sleep in So come on, cut me down from the fence I can't keep sitting out I need a little bit of time to figure out these events In present tenses!

You were mine to defend You wanted the waiting to end I wanted to see you again You've seen this face before Death at the foot of the door Hungry at your hand I'm coming apart; you're becoming a part of my plan But slow down You shouldn't be so cold You've been hiding out And doing as you're told Doing as he tells you Telling him you're sold You shot me I'm not how you want me I wanted your body I wanted you on me You tempt and you taunt me You speak like it's copy At my command Would you tear him down and talk me up like your man I can't stand And I will crawl until you pick me up And take me in to hide As our commitments come untied You got me I'm right where you want me You're under my body You separate softly I want to be happy I want you to catch me You caught me I'm not how you want me I followed you falsely You felt it and fought me You collar me calmly I want to be sorry I want you to stop me
