Lyrics


Verse 1:

(Whoa-o)

I’ve been banging my head against the wall

(Whoa-o)

For so long it seems I knocked it down

Yeah, it got knocked down

(Whoa-o)

And the heating bill went through the roof

(Whoa-o)

And the wall I knocked down was the proof

That my landlord needed to kick me out


I got evicted now I’m living on the street

My spirit’s lifted...oh wait, that wasn’t me

Too many turns have turned out to be wrong

This time I learned that, I knew it all along

When car crashes occur

Then I’ll be what you were

When I see what I should

When I see that it’s good

That it's good


To experience the bittersweet

To taste defeat then brush my teeth

Experience the bittersweet

To taste defeat then brush my teeth


Chorus:

Cause I struggle with forward motion

I struggle with forward motion

We all struggle with forward motion

Cause forward motion is harder than it sounds

Well every time I gain some ground I gotta turn myself around again

It’s harder than it sounds

Well every time I gain some ground I gotta turn myself around again


Verse 2:

(Whoa-o)

I’ve been banging my head against the wall

(Whoa-o)

For so long it seems I got knocked out

Yeah, I got knocked out cold

(Whoa-o)

And the medical bills went through the roof

(Whoa-o)

And the scar on my head is the proof

That I’ll still remember this when I get old

I got evicted now I’m living on the street

My spirit’s lifted...oh wait, that wasn’t me

Too many turns have turned out to be wrong

This time I learned that, I knew it all along

When I grasp the concept

Then I’ll sleep where you slept

When I know I need help

When I allow myself


To experience the bittersweet

To taste defeat then brush your teeth

To experience the bittersweet

To taste defeat then brush your teeth


Chorus:

Cause I struggle with forward motion

I struggle with forward motion

We all struggle with forward motion

Cause forward motion is harder than it sounds

Well every time I gain some ground I gotta turn myself around again

It’s harder than it sounds

Well every time I gain some ground I gotta turn myself around again

Cause I struggle with forward motion

Cause I struggle with forward motion

We all struggle with forward motion

Cause I struggle with forward motion

Cause I struggle with forward motion

We all struggle with forward motion
