  • I'm gonna make a mistake-
    I'm gonna do it on purpose
    I'm gonna waste my time
    Cuz I'm full as a tick
    And I'm scratching at the surface
    And what I find is mine
    And when the day is done, and I look back
    And the fact is I had fun, fumbling around
    All the advice I shunned, and I ran
    Where they told me not to run, but I sure
    Had fun, so
    I'm gonna fuck it up again
    I'm gonna do another detour
    Unpave my path
    And if you wanna make sense
    Whatcha looking at me for
    I'm no good at math
    And when I find my way back,
    The fact is I just may stay, or I may not
    I've acquired quite a taste
    For a well-made mistake
    I wanna mistake why can't I make a mistake?
    I'm always doing what I think I should
    Almost always doing everybody good
    Why-
    Do I wanna do right, of course but
    Do I really wanna feel I'm forced to
    Answer you, hell no
    I've acquired quite a taste
    For a well-made mistake, I wanna
    Make a mistake, why can't I make a mistake
    I'm always doing what I think I should
    Almost always doing everybody good
    Why-
