There should be a trophy for this

from light to see dark by annie bacon & her OSHEN



It's the same, every time, every place, everywhere
I am fine, works on time, no need to complain
Then one day I wake and there's
No ground beneath my feet

On their sticks, on a stage, spinning plates, can't keep up
Though I race all around, the plates come crashing down
And the sound, the fear of
Breaking at whispers

I'm so tired (so tired)
And wondering
Who's gonna hire me next?
And how much (how much?)
Will they need to know?
And how deep (how deep?)
Will their searches go?

If it's this hard to get to 30, jesus christ,
There should be a trophy for this
Carrying this fear . . .
But I always make it through
I always make it through
