So scared to walk away
But too afraid to stay
Have to find a reason
You have to find a way.

Aren’t you sick of feeling worthless
Like a hopeless whining fool?
You need to get up, get busy
Figure out what you should do.

Standing there alone in place
Isn’t really helping you
Feeling paralyzed and frozen
Not knowing what to do.

Nothing’s going to happen
Till you make up my mind
To stop settling for mediocrity
Stop wasting so much time.

Idle hands around you
All they do is slow you down
You need some inspiration
Pull yourself off of the ground.

You’ve gotta make it happen
Take your pride down from the shelf
Dust off your self-esteem right now
It’s time to help yourself.
