Capture And GainMature

It's about trying to run away from your problems, but failing

On the treadmill

Run all you like but you're going nowhere

Damn it, fuck it, I'm feeling useless

I'm not coming back again

Because I'm a man walking condemned 

 

The game deepens as the stakes rise

Capture and gain, I'm just another scalp and prize 

Comforting words by men I despise 

Trying to kick the habit of running away

But I know rehabilitation is expecting more lies

 

On the drugs and booze

Drink all you like but it's still there

Damn it, screw it, I can't shift it

The hangover times by 100

An aching, returning feeling of dread

 

The game deepens as the stakes rise

Capture and gain, I’m just another scalp and prize

Comforting words by men I despise

Trying to kick the habit of running away

But I know rehabilitation is expecting more lies 

 

 

 

The End
