It’s a sticky situation
I see that I’m just a piece in the game
All the white pawns surround me
Everything moves but stays the same
The castle is in his corner
The queen’s shifting in and out of the frame
I don’t want to cause no problems
I don’t want to be the one that complains

There’s just one thing on my mind
But maybe it’ll go away

I think there might have been a mistake
A little thing that eats away at my soul
I thought it was a cut and dry case
But now it’s taking more and more of a toll
I swear that I think I’m climbing
But I keep sinking into this hole
I wish I didn’t have these problems
I wish I didn’t have to be on the dole

There’s a pain deep in my side
But maybe it’ll go away

I look around for the answers
(But) everyone says I should be fine
I think I might be going crazy
Chasing a tail that could be mine
I try to trust intuition
I see a curve when I should be seeing a line
I need to move past my problems
I need to move past the block in my mind

A stabbing ache that makes me blind
But maybe it’ll go away.
