lyrics

i hope you know what i mean
i fear that you are slipping from the scene
eyes with rings orbiting in red and green

you're not overshot or falling up short
you fail to differentiate the wall from the board

and you think of all those you've known
thrown, but never hit home
influences meant and never meant to happen
they pin you to a gamble you don't take well

i can tell you've been staring at a map of your world
with your fingers curled around a dart
it's sharp, but do you trust where it lands
and your own hand enough to show you who you are?

i'll admit i'm ashamed
but i can't be brought to talk to you today
pepper on the cork, you'll be working on your aim

i've been trained to step in when you land outside the lines
understand - i'm afraid i'm inclined to just say throw it all away

just think of all those you've known
they can't just hand you a bone
all the chances meant and never meant to take
making you feel like it's one big game

all the same, you've been staring at the map of your world
with your fingers curled around a dart
will it fly true or are you making up a sport
just to force a bullseye on your heart?
