Tripping

Tripping,tripping,fall,fall

Trying to catch that crazy ball

Because you thought you knew it all

Thinking, blinking now your sinking

Running after that girl and winking

Whispering, disappearing, acting differently

Shouting,yelling has me pouting

Grinning, sneering, leering

Wherever we go

You put on such a show

That has left you with bad mojo

Your heart is shrinking

Immersing in your thursting for the darkness

That is lurking leaving my heart bursting

Tripping,tripping,fall,fall

Guess you dropped that crazy ball

You never knew me at all

I am done crying

So sick of your lying

Your futures bleak

Now your girls playing hide and seek

You’re saying Hi

I’m like Bye

Tripping (Don’t Care)
