"The Go-To Guy"


“The Go-To Guy”


You carry the responsibility, the weight of a people’s trust and culpability

The pressure is welcomed, courses swift with agility


You exude confidence, fickle or prominent

Preach positive 


You give them faith in an ability 

Cling to efforts in history


You possess an inherent patience, when your situational breathing turns into a calm cadence

The song is downtempo, gracious in nature


You embrace failure while negating it, replacing it with grateful powers of belief

The grief of defeat, nightmares for sleep


You don’t want the ball, you need the ball

Obsess over progress


You rest only in the functions of your own flesh

You are reliant, defiant, a slave to the burden


The one who’s (supposed to be) most certain


You know these feelings, if you’ve ever been the go-to guy
