Broken Parachute - Hit the Wall

Hit the Wall

Hit the Wall
Music and Lyrics: Marcus Taylor

These days I’ve been waking up tired,
Yet I can’t seem to sleep at night.
I’ve been chasing my tail for over a week,
And I just can’t get it right.
I’ve been spinning my wheels with no traction there,
I’ve been sleeping on my feet,
I’m beginning to know just how it feels.
When you’ve gone well past your peak.

So tell me how, oh how.
Do you do it?
Tell me what, what,
What’s your secret?
Yes tell me how come,
You never fall.
You always glide on through,
Just as I hit the wall.

I just can’t seem to get a clear picture,
With all the static that’s in my brain,
I’ve been staring at this screen for five hours now.
And it all just seems the same.

There’s a pounding going on in my head,
And I can’t seem to get it to stop.
I think I’m falling off the edge of my mind,
And I don’t like the look of the drop.

So tell me how, oh how.
Do you do it?
Tell me what, oh what,
What’s your secret?
Yes tell me how, how come,
You never fall.
You always glide on through,
Just as I hit the wall.
