Winning

posted 16 April 2002


I go through life
I've got my ambitions
I've set my goals
But they seem to be shifting
Everytime I turn around
They move further away

Is it still winning
If I've broken all my rules?
Is it still winning
If I've lost all my cool?
It may be sinning
But I won't look like a fool
I may be winning
But it doesn't feel that way

I've got my standards
Well -- I did at the beginning
Things got a li-dle tough
I may have bent the rules
Means to an end, I know
But now the end has no meaning
I didn't really want things
To be this way

Is it still winning
If I've broken all my rules?
Is it still winning
If I've lost all my cool?
It may be sinning
But I won't look like a fool
I may be winning
But it doesn't feel that way

I've seen all the others
And I've seen their condition
Maybe all this winning
Isn't all that it seems
Maybe there's no success
If you don't go in kicking
Then is it worth the risk
Of success kicking back?

Is it still winning
If I've broken all my rules?
Is it still winning
If I feel like a fool?
I know that I'm sinning
But they're sinning too
I may be winning
But it doesn't feel that way

I know we all can't win
But I won't be the loser
Why do I have to win
And prove myself right?
All that I'll show again
Is that I'm still good at cheating
Nobody cares but me
So maybe it's all right.

Here I am winning
I've broken all my rules
Here I'm winning
I've taken all of those dares
I know that I'm sinning
But it doesn't matter
Once I'm out here winning
Nobody cares.
