The Price We Pay — Clawfinger

Things never seem to go according to plans
So we always end up compromising
We’re not smart enough to have a plan B at hand
So we always end up improvising
It’s killing us to settle with the cards we get
When we know there’s much more at stake
But giving in to pressure is the safest bet
& it’s also our biggest mistake
Chorus: That’s the price we pay, that’s the price we pay (x4)
We never asked to be put into this position
We never had high demands
We never claimed to be on some kind of mission
Like we had some kind of masterplan
It’s not as if we know exactly what we came for
So we settle for what comes our way
We’re always unprepared for the final encore
What the fuck are we supposed to say
Every move we make every step we take that’s the price we pay
Every rule we break, every move we fake that’s the price we pay! (x2)
