justification lyrics – dag nasty

we have tried and failed
we have stumbled and fallen
we have tried a new taste
and we spit it back out
we have taken a left turn
when we meant to turn right
we lost sight of our origins
but our past never lost sight of us
lost sight of us
it’s not emulation – ’cause that’s not this hard
not imitation – ’cause that won’t take you far
not digression – ’cause i’m falling straight up
it is progression – i’m not afraid to stand up
i don’t know what i expected
but i expected it to be great
i said “i’m trying my hardest”
but he didn’t like the tape
take a look at what you’re doing
and tell me i’m too late
you say we’re walking backwards
well, that dead horse sure can run
it sure can run
the truth
i know i can
i know i will
i know – i know what i have to do
and now you’ll listen
and i hope it won’t hurt
i’ve seen your poison
you’ve done your worst
i’ve seen your better
and i can’t believe it’s true
you’ve lost the truth
that used to live inside of you
