It’s Not Enough

Now you’ve got all that you want
It’s like you’ve shut down
Turn the tables on yourself
Could it be it’s not enough?

Your balancing act
Up on your parapet is beautiful
You washed the black mark from my name
Now I’m your domain

You say for me
There’s grander halls and higher pedestals
That I’d break my neck to see
Then would that be enough?

He sits alone
The only boy in class to get an erection in school
But that was ten years ago
And the laughter in this room’s got nothing to do with him
He’s got a feeling it’s not enough
But he’ll never find the truth that he’s been suppressing
Nobody sees him anymore
And sure as hell nobody ever sees him undressing

She stands alone
The girl who you thought was too good for you to talk to
She works selling magazines to old men
And tries not think where they go to
She’s got a feeling it’s not enough
But she’ll never find the part that she’s missing
Nobody wants to know anything about her
But if there’s someone that she’s kissing

We live alone
In perfect circles concentric
And worry about getting progressively more eccentric
We’ve got a feeling it’s not enough
