Fall down; get up
The break before the bend
In a circle taking punches once again

At the peak of disarray
I'm a felon, at best
Beat by the worst
Failed another test
Defeated by the fear

Inperfection's always near...

If I Fall at your feet again...

If I Fall at your feet
Maybe this time I can change
Will you love me even though I fell?
(And) forgive these lies I try so hard to sell...
