Where it goes from here you can change with a plan
At least you think you can
Put that old picture beside yours and analyse what's changed
Your stupid hair, your ugly face, your outlandish views were all over the place

I still think that you can move on
To something else, someone else
But all you want to do is put on a show
And there's no one looking over your shoulder yet

Something tells me you want to meet him
So we schedule in a time
Should it be your place or maybe mine?
You know that old friend of yours drives a hard line

And all I think as we're talking is how you've changed but somehow stayed the same
You've still got a long way to go, you won't get very far with that show

There's always something wrong, if you fix this thing the next will come along
It's our nature, something you can't change
But you've got so many choices, who do you want to be?

Making progress is something you can't teach
