lyrics

I am the secret to the start
I know why you fell apart, it's because you went too far
You should've stopped when you had the chance
You could've agreed but you made that stance, and now you're in the pro-camp
Because you raised your hand in some argument you don't understand

Are you having problems? I've been there you know
Here comes an over-simplified answer, the unasked for advice
Teaching lessons at night, while he's holding a pint

Looks like things are brightening up, it's a light grey
Waking up is tough when you've nowhere to go
So you make an excuse to see a friend, then some enemy to make amends
But it all went wrong when you got where he came from and how he got there

Are you having problems? I've been there you know
Here comes an over-simplified answer, the unasked for advice
Teaching lessons at night, while he's holding a pint
