Close To Good – On The Staff Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I know you think that it’s over now
But you’re wrong
‘Cause it’s only just begun to sting
And you can hang your head all the way down to the ground
But I beg you, look into my eyes
Why are you wasting away
After all that you’ve done
Your example continues to stand
Whether you do or not
And rocking from side to side
The monument you’ll reach
After giving the whole of your life
It is falling apart
I don’t know how else to get through to you
Maybe on the staff is the only way
[Verse 2]
‘Cause you’re still alive, and you’re really well
But you keep on telling yourself
That you’re damned if you do and you’re damned if you don’t
And it hurts way beyond agony
Yeah, but you killin’, why? Now the pieces are stacking so high
How can you even breathe
Stand up, shake them off
And then one by one
Put back together the shell of what once was true
Of the best thing that you ever were
Or that we once knew
I don’t mean to come down so hard on you
But you leave us with so very little choice
[Verse 3]
Why are you wasting away
After all that you’ve done
Your example continues to stand
Whether you do or not
And I don’t know how else to get through
To you
