Brick by Brick: Elton Plett

Brick by brick
I’m full of doubt
Trapped in this tower
Looking out.

Must be a better way
I heard someone say
Lose the battle now
Fight another day.

I wouldn’t wish this hand
On anyone, the cards
That I’ve been dealt.

Life was made for living
Bull by the horns
I guess that metaphor
Comes in many forms.

I never listen to nobody
That’s the problem still
Won’t listen to nobody
But I got a space to fill
I guess I never will.
