If I were little braver,
If I were a little smarter,
I would done it years ago,
But now it's too late,
I'm too firmly rooted,
I can't explain,
I'm almost happy,
It's as if I've lapsed,

I don't have lungs,
I don't breathe the air,
It tastes of other people,
And their DNA,

Promise you won't laugh,
But I've got a secret that I can't take to the grave,
And it's driving me mad,
See, I'm a special kind,
I was obsolete before I came of age,
But never mind.

It's just time,

I had to learn the hard way
