I had my heart set on the real thing baby
But truthfuly you're only halfway there
You've been knocking on the wrong doors lately
Cause either no one's home or no one cares
Always be your second option
But second fiddles not my name

Coming like a locomotive
Passengers who'll never stop
I fill my train car with foolish notions
Use me as your fancy prop

But then I got the deepest oceans
Brimming full with other sharks for me
I spill my blood for the cold reaction
And watch them closely as they come to feed

Thought I was a decent swimmer
But maybe I don't need to swim

Hiding in the darkest waters
Evolution has done its part
Fill myself with the guilty conscience
I am living with a poison heart

I had my heart set on the real thing baby
But truthfully you're only halfway there
