Smithereens

I'm a mess. and every breath I take in is just another mistake
You're flawless. and everything you stand on. They last long. They seem to kneel in your wake

I'm stumbling around. on conflicted stances and hair pulling
You're bringing me down. every time you get it right. I glare at the mirror and yell at the ceiling

All my good intentions get driven to voids
All my explanations get swallowed up in your shiny machine
Trying to be a man with a mission
but in comparison
I'm a frightened angry boy
All my insecurities deepen fractures. and it only takes a look at you
to blow me to...
smithereens

I've always been a loser. but ignorance blessed my being until you
You walked in, precisely better. and everybody realized. who needs to  oblige old souls like me. when you can have brand new shoes?

All my good intentions get driven to voids
All my explanations get swallowed up in your shiny machine
Trying to be a man with a mission
but in comparison
I'm a frightened angry boy
All my insecurities deepen fractures. and it only takes a look at you
to blow me to...
smithereens

Trying to convince the population of my convictions
Leaves me flailing for a reason to believe in myself. And you being nice to me while I'm kicking dustbins and punching walls
can't erase the stink of a could-have been

Crying out for redemption for all of my misled actions
While you're basking in the glow of everybody else. You're a hero in reflections and I was once whole before
I took my first fall
and overanalyzed my situation
You breezed through and cleaned up the scene
that I wreaked havoc on with bad decisions
I'm sorry I was already riddled with fissures before your entry
but with each occasion you're overshadowing little insignificant me
it's that much more easy (I'm a crumbling biscuit)
it only takes a look at you
to blow me to...
smithereens.
