It always sounds so easy

To become the person I've always wanted to be.

Why can't I make the potion work for me?

Is there a step somewhere I failed to see?

Invisible ink I wasn't able to read?

If not, why can't I make the potion work for me?

I have all the ingredients, so I've been led to believe,

But when I mix them together, I find no reprieve.

Why can't I make the potion work for me?

I want to be different, I want people to see

That I'm not filled with just hatred, and malice, and greed.

Why can't I make the potion work for me?

One more time, I'll attempt to conceive

The right way to exact this elusive recipe.

I WILL make this potion work for me.
