lyrics

I’ve been looking for a metaphor for the state I’m in. Not so much going to war but more that you can never win. Well you told me once, you told me again. You told me once, and then you told me again. I’ve gone over it a thousand times and nothing seems to land. The world collapses and leaves you without a place to stand. Well you told me once - don’t tell me again. If you told me once, then you don’t have to tell me again. And everyone is talking about things they already know, but nobody is mentioning the beast that lives below. And it’s hard to think about it, but you got to do what you can. If you told me once, then you don’t have to tell me again. Then all at once it comes and oh, you should have known. And there’s nowhere you can turn to now cause you’re on your own. Well you told me once, but tell me again. If you told me once, then maybe you should tell me again. And everyone is heading to the feast in the great hall, but nobody is searching for the beast that haunts us all. And it’s hard to work around it, but you got to do what you can. If you told me once, then maybe you should tell me again. And everyone is singing that we made it through the cold, but nobody’s accounting for the beast that’s taken hold. And it’s hard to be a person, but you got to do what you can. If you told me once, then now tell me again. So now tell me again.
