12.15.16 – elite

don’t trip

everybody’s watching

 

head of the pack, on your pedestal

but no one’s gonna catch you if you fall

 

you can’t

not when everybody’s watching

what would they think?

 

it’s when they blink

that’s when you breathe

as they close, you can open

I know you’re tired of living for them

 

they take what you don’t give

they hate when it is how it is

 

but don’t trip

everybody’s watching

 

and that makes it worth it

I know you love your pedestal
