14 minutes staring down the page
I can’t get a thing written down even though I should
It’s hard to write down words for a think that hasn’t been thought

Distracted by a pencil
Can’t focus on the topic
Forget another masterpiece
Drumming on the table
Overthinking simple things
I’ll shove it off another day

I Forgot the words I didn’t write
I forgot the tune of the song
I’m getting stuck writing about writers block
And this is just our first song!

I’m grasping for thoughts
Trying to subdue them into staying in a song
As soon as the words are born, they try to get out of my mind
They’re getting away, yeah!
