You’re spiraling completely
Out of Control
I’ve heard the excuses
The story gets old.

A sense of entitlement
That hasn’t been earned
Poor behavior accepted
Simply what you have learned.

Always the same
The same sad results
It couldn’t be you
It’s never your fault.

So many chances
Have passed you on by
You can’t face the truth
It’s too easy to lie.

If it takes effort
We can’t count on you
You’re just too busy
Always something to do.

The time quickly passes
Soon you’ll be alone
No safety net waiting
No one will be home.
