  • Just when I thought
    I had handled solace
    I could soften my guard behind false confidence

    Just when I felt
    Humbled by insipid
    Except from this blind-side and from reading a script
    'Cause I am seduced by reaction and under the influence

    I'm slipping again
    I'm up to old tricks off my wagon
    I have no defense
    I'm wreaking havoc
    Wreaking havoc and consequence

    I get reduced by my own willfulness
    As I reach for my usual god replacements
    'Cause I am rich with sanction and lax in my steps

    I'm slipping again
    I'm up to old tricks off my wagon
    I have no defense
    I'm wreaking havoc
    Wreaking havoc and consequence

    If forgiveness is understanding that I
    Affirming a compact for the millionth time
    From this tumbling house of cards of mine

    I am beaten by my impulsiveness
    By this uncanning foreshadowing of regret
    'Cause I'm repulsed by restriction at least that's my excuse

    I'm slipping again
    I'm up to old tricks off my wagon
    I have no defense
    I'm wreaking havoc
    Wreaking havoc and consequence

    I'm slipping again
    I'm up to old tricks off my wagon
    I have no defense
    I'm wreaking havoc
    Wreaking havoc and consequence Writer/s: ALANIS NADINE MORISSETTE, GUY SIGSWORTH
