From the recording Paper Tigers

Paper Tigers-
Written by Adam Flaig
These three songs were recorded in Nashville, TN at County Q Studio under the supervision and guidance of engineer/producer Mike Purcell. They were written independently of each other with years in between but when grouped together in sequence a story is born.
I constantly hold myself back due to fright but I have to remember paper tigers don't bite.

Lyrics

I got a tired I can't shake
I got a hunger I can't curb
I got a lot on my mind but nothing to say
I can't seem to work up the nerve
I got a plan for something great
I need a map to mark the turns
With no plan B or somewhere to be
I get lost and perturbed

A friend is someone who lends, lends a helping hand
Don't even have to ask, they got each other's back
An enemy would rather see you fail
You'd rather see them impailed

I got a movie in my head, and a voice that says push play
I got a supporting cast with Academy-knack, there's no 4th wall to penetrate
Always distracted on the clock and it's hard to stay on task
They make pills for this but the pills won't fix the yearning that forever attacks

A friend is someone who lends, lends a helping hand
Don't even have to ask
An enemy is someone that you hate and they reciprocate
A lover is someone you smother when you're hearts on fire, there's no one else they desire
But what, what do you call someone you love that does not love you?

I got a brain that's turned to mush
And a heart that's turned to stone
A body that's fatigued almost permanently, I can feel it in my lymph nodes
But I swear no matter what, I'll never lose hope I'm sure
Because for everyday I max-out in pain, the opposite waits to occur

A friend is someone who lends, lends a helping hand
Don't even have to ask
An enemy is someone that you hate and they reciprocate
A lover is someone you smother when you're hearts on fire, there's no one else they desire
But what, what do you call someone you love that does not love you?
