Napoleon Complex

from by Conquering Rome



Someday, after wishing away
You’ll have everything
That you wanted
Yet you will still complain
About how it all came and
Question the person
Who brought it
Every time I hear you talk,
You’re not even complaining
For a cause
And somehow everything
Becomes everyone else’s fault
And the reason for it all
Is the fact that
You’re unhappy with what you have
And you may not reach all
Your goals and expectations
But that doesn’t make who you are
There are plenty of things
Put under examination
Don’t get caught up in reaching for the stars
Every time I hear you speak
I see a little of yourself inside of me
When did I begin to change?
I used to only want the simple things
But that’s not enough anymore
And sometimes it’s tough to see
Everything clearly when you look at
Yourself from afar
But you’ve been so wrapped up
Into proving yourself
You can’t be comfortable with who you are
Yet you’re reaching for the stars
