Push, Pull, back and forth Endless tug of war In, out, around we go In this revolving door When will we realize We’re only made of stars When will we decide This is who we are Up down, left and right Find what’s in between Round round, can’t catch up Stuck in this machine When will we realize We’re only made of stars When will we decide This is who we are Push, pull, emotions land Crashing down like waves Turn to the ocean’s end Escaping from the maze When will we realize We’ll need to change our ways When will we decide To fight for better days

We keep making the same mistakes We keep singing the same refrain We keep making the same mistakes How much longer to break the chain? We can only see what we can see Try to be as good as I can be Searching for a way to look through other’s eyes All it really takes is one mistake Be a little slow, a little late We could lose it all, become what we despise We keep making the same mistakes Wonder how long it’s gonna take We keep making the same mistakes We keep moving on through the rain The past is gone and lost My name is not my name The ashes turn to dust My blood is still the same We keep making the same mistakes So much wisdom and strength to gain We keep making the same mistakes We keep singing on through the pain Cycles inside cycles Trying to break free Cycles inside cycles
