Break the chain of command, find out where I stand
Grip shoulder lead by the hand
Find out you own your car and your home
Parents old, both live alone

Figuring the choice you made, aren't you glad I stayed?
Rather nicely played
Turn down the fire, it's got to last a while yet
Never mind, but that's your style set

Another chapter left to write, but you begin to find
The relative chapter length declines
Begin to repeat, firmly plant your feet
Got this far, can't admit defeat

A search for what you like, but people change their mind
Need something else that gratifies every time
Once heard a song that made you quit your job
Track suddenly stops
