lyrics

After six months I finally said enough
There's no way I'll be your diamond in the rough
I pushed some buttons - I gave it a chance
Waste of time - why'd I dwell so much upon it?
I still have that card with your name on it

Getting called out on my lucky break
Nervous now that I only get one mistake
And once I blow that I'm tossed out the door
Risked my soul so I could get that extra life
Worthless goal, stupid prayer uttered every night:

Recognized
Recognized
Let me be recognized...

I'm nothing but that pain in your chest
Hired on to be your scapegoat at best
I did what you asked but earned no reward
Yeah I'm glad the party has abandoned me
But in my mind I'm loved and I will always be

Recognized
Recognized
Not some second prize
I am recognized...
