about

This is the lead single from upcoming album Anxious Inventions & Fictions.

lyrics

Where oh where did my potential go?
Or was it ever even here?
Used to hang out with my aptitude
Before we saw them disappear

Put me under oath

And I swear on my honor as a sinner
And I swear that I’ll never make the same mistake again
And I swear on my fragile human nature
That I’ll only let you down when the words come back around on me

Once you said you thought the world of me
Or was that something you would feign?
Used to think I had ability
Before I poured it down the drain

Put me under oath

And I swear on my honor as a sinner
And I swear that I’ll never make the same mistake again
And I swear on my fragile human nature
That I’ll only let you down when the words come back around on me

And I swear on my honor as a sinner
And I swear that I’ll never make the same mistake again
And I swear on my fragile human nature
That I’ll only let you down when the words come back around

And I swear on my honor as a sinner
And I swear that I’ll never make the same mistake again
And I swear on my fragile human nature
That I’ll only let you down when the words come back around
Yeah, I’ll only let you down when the words come back around on me
On me
