Rearranged version of "Infestation" by Tadpole

lyrics

One thing I never gave myself
Was an intermission, a break
I was too caught up with the thought of
Never living down my next mistake
I was always telling myself heaven or hell lets rock
But afraid to follow through
They'd beat me to the draw if I paused
Couldn't get passed Level II

So I watched others go right by me
And I said "why me?"

Melodramatic cliche
Stuck on replay

Instead of lack of progress
Just stop the process

Everybody needs just one of these
So let's PAUSE PAUSE PAUSE PAUSE


TAKE A BREAK CREATE A SAVE
WHAT YOU DO FROM HERE IS OKAY
DIE, INFINITE TIMES, WITH NO REGRETS
TAKE A BREAK, ENTER YOUR NAME
MAKE IT STUPID AND PLAY THE GAME
DON'T CARE, DON'T THINK, DON'T FEAR JUST HIT RESET

Because the service I provide, I provide for me
Is the infinite amount of time with a hyper beam
You say you've got low health, well c'est la vie
WELL SO IS LIFE, well c'est la vie
WELL SO IS LIFE, well c'est la vie
WELL SO IS LIFE, well c'est la vie
WELL C'EST LA VIE, well c'est la vie
Well c'est la vie.

I've got 99 problems, all dalmatians
Ran out of leashes, don't have the patience
Left my keys and I got locked out
So I built another house
I don't even use words like "is"
Or do I believe in the word "fact"
The road less traveled became the highway
But my way is ripping the map in half

So try out life in 3-D
Turn off the TV

Richter Scale that Etch-a-Sketch
Turn and start fresh

Live like nobody's watching
Be your own Prom Queen

Everybody needs just one of these
So let's PAUSE PAUSE PAUSE PAUSE


Not perfect, not close at all
Got to the point to admitting fault
What you saw as self-involved
Was a terrified child putting up a wall
A coward, I counteracted
Not a day goes by where I wish I hadn't
Hindsight's 20/20
And I would change nothing
Because this is the place that I want to be
No matter how bad that it might seem
Take our mistakes, throw 'em at the stars
So they're not too bright, but they're still ours
Sit down, tell a story
Stand up, let's go exploring
When I get life out of the way I've got it all
Friends, time, and a sense of awe
