What if my thoughts aren’t real
Chemically bound to progress and
Maybe I don’t know how to feel
What if my words aren’t mine
Stolen from books and street signs
I never learned how to slow or yield

What is an honest life
Something that wasn’t chosen or
Maybe Im just to tired to fight
Hoping it’s worth the wait
Hoping our passion lifts us up
Okay, Well okay, Im okay I guess.

Always chasing after empty glory
I need to have my own story
I want to have my own life

I was living by numbers
And waiting for summer
To take me from you
What a waste
Now I walk liberated
A child that hated
The work that we choose
The way you pushed us out
The way you conquer now
The way your voice resounds
The way we all fall down

Time, don’t confirm my doubts
Now, good ghost on my couch
Stay here for a little while, I’ll
Breathe in as you sit beside
Now I’ll show you what I’ve found
