Minimum Requirement

Imprisoned to lie beneath myself
Destined to fall farther down
Savoring nothing I can taste
Being dealt all the wrong cards in life
Driving me closer to my breaking point
Seemingly only entering my own hell
How do you read past this fact?
I as well as me am not well

Introversion breaking me
Selling myself short of respect
Can't take much more of this neglect
Now I sit and reflect on what can never be

Not making the cut
Falling well short
Failure to meet
Or come within sight
Losing my only fight

Once again slamming me in the mouth
Show me again why I can't ever see
Limiting me holding back what I cannot be
Your minimum requirement holding me back
My entire life now out of wack
Your minimum requirement holding me back
My entire life now out of wack

Knocking on this door for relief of me
Escape with my little pride and dignity
With little to no belief in whom I am today
Weak and powerless to all that defies
Cannot lie or tell you why I am in this
Ignore my fact explore my fiction
Will always continue to mention
Tomorrow is the last place I wish to be
If that place is not with you
But...

Introversion breaking me
Selling myself short of respect
Can't take much more of this neglect
Now I sit and reflect on what can never be

Not making the cut
Falling well short
Failure to meet
Or come within sight
Losing my only fight

Once again slamming me in the mouth
Show me again why I can't ever see
Limiting me holding back what I cannot be
Your minimum requirement holding me back
My entire life now out of wack
Your minimum requirement holding me back
My entire life now out of wack

Once again slamming me in the mouth
Show me again why I can't ever see
Limiting me holding back what I cannot be
Your minimum requirement holding me back
My entire life now out of wack
Your minimum requirement holding me back
My entire life now out of wack
Your minimum requirement holding me back
My entire life now out of wack
Your minimum requirement holding me back
My entire life now out of wack
Your minimum requirement holding me back
My entire life now out of wack
