lyrics

My friends have all grown up,
if I can even call them friends.
Out there, they all move on.
In here, all means, no ends.
I’m not inside myself,
not the way I’m meant to be.
I fake it well enough.
In here, all moves, no me.

Bit by bit, when I say that I couldn’t
Bit by bit, what I mean is I wouldn’t,
and best of all, I never even tried.
Bit by bit, I’m becoming a monster.
Bit by bit, I’m becoming my father.
My ceaseless and inexorable slide.

I’m eager to please.
Hold tight my unease.
You break me down, but I don’t belong to anyone
and no one can say they know me well.
You don’t know me well.
Bit by bit, I am staying the same.
Bit by bit, I am staying where I am.
Bit by bit, I am staying the same.
Bit by bit by bit by bit by bit...

Bit by bit, when I say that I couldn’t
Bit by bit, what I mean is I wouldn’t,
and best of all, I never even tried.
Bit by bit, I’m becoming a monster.
Bit by bit, I’m becoming my father.
My ceaseless and inexorable slide.
