lyrics

You're older
Your shoulder
A full 180 to the right
Sittin' down where you stood up
You fall back
The contact
Jars your memory on the floor
You say you're changing, but you're still the same as before
The same...

Is it wiser to be
what you set out to be
Or to just be the way that you are?

'Cause I do the
The same old
Shit I used to do and don't
Realize it because
What's engrained
Is so plain
Muscle memory, now you're sure
It's harder changing than to stay the same

And It's wiser to be
What you set out to be
Than be one with the shit you let fly
But I push and I shove
Replace my habits and love
What I got, 'cause it's all I know...

And with each generation brings new waves of change
New consequence for me if I refrain

'Cause it's wiser to be
What you set out to be
Than to just be the way that you are
But I push and I shove
Replace my habits and love
Replace my habits and love...
