lyrics

(V1)
You have to start with the Baseline
And from there it's a slow climb
To all the things you want or that you think you could be

You have to repay debts in kind
Then you rack up the face-time
And all the while you know that there's no guarantee

(spoken)
You think you're the only one?
Everyone else has faced the same path
The easy way out is a constant temptation
But then you're the one who has to face yourself in the mirror
I know how hard the day to day gets
I know the struggle weighs down like a mountain range
But if you're not going to step up to the battle
Who will? Who will?

(Bridge)
Start at the Baseline (x2)

(Chorus)
You gotta start at the Baseline
And everything will be just fine
You gotta start at the Baseline
And everything will be just fine
You gotta start at the Baseline
And everything will be just fine
You gotta start at the Baseline
And everything will be fine

(V2)
You have to master the sublime
Live each day in your own prime
Forever stretching past where you're standing today

You have to forge your own design
Push yourself past your own line
'Cause you're the only one that you stand to betray

(spoken)
This is a game that can't be won
There's no end condition and no grand prize
It's just a steady progression forward
If you're standing still then you're moving backwards
I didn't make the rules, I just follow them
I know that life isn't fair
Anyone who said it was is a fool or a liar
I never want to be either, do you?

(Bridge)

(Chorus)

(Outro x4)
You have start somewhere
You want to be somewhere
You need to go somewhere
Well take me anywhere but here
