Lyrics:

Man I can’t keep my hands still
No rest for the wicked, no
Put it all on the line, then I let it go
Same burden, the pain and the episodes
Drained the positive away, I need an antidote
So sick and conflicted
Heart still beating, I need a minute
Looking back, looking forward, all I see is doubt
Pacing backwards and forward while I read aloud
More rush for the music, I know I can do this, feeling the motion of movement, I’m hoping the rope with the noose is provoking the hope that elopes with the humans
Read a mind, see the lies on the plate, we’re just hiding away, what we’re likely to say
If we put a foot forward, move silent and graced, for the time and the day that we’re likely to change
I’m a stranger, looking in the mirror, see a face of, an image that’s promoted by the anger
I never used to say much, always kept my thoughts and my face covered up so you’d never know the danger
What I’m saying is I never let my mind left open, I hope that you know of the pride
When I look into your eyes, I see that the suffering gray, knows something bout the mockery in mine
If I’m honest man I’m scared of the future, watching us stare at computers, and drink till we think that the moment is beat, but slowly we sink till the brink an era of abusers
Never slip through the cracks in the wall, till we lack what we saw when we stared at the fall
We were meant to avoid, but what it meant was a choice, made the greatest of voice barely caring at all

I know it’s hard to compete, but we’re armed to the teeth
With the weapons to win all the harshest of wars, so
Let me ask you a question, take a seat for a second
Are you willing to adapt and survive for a time with your life as a warzone?

We’ve been battling addiction for a while though
The fight for recognition and the slight hope
That every fear we can imagine we can smite with our eyes clothes, it’s only ever apparent on a ride home
Take a pill, it’ll help the stress, smoke a joint, take a shot, let it vent
All it does is dig the pain in deeper inside
Until reality is nothing we can see with our eyes
It’s the road for the wisdom, trapped and condoned to this clone of our difference
The chasm between who we stagger to be, facing doubt and oblivion, toking the pistons
Tank empty, there’s nothing to prove
Tapped out, 3 count on the puzzle we view
Bones crack, blood spatters while we hide from the truth
It’s honest, I’ve seen it recurring and I’m part of the news
Pointing blame just to hide my shame
That’s why, I’ve been private and vague
Not appearing till I’m wide awake
Man I used to be confined with a side of hate, you gotta wait for the sign that your mind creates, don’t side with motives, side with the time of day
The point of the living isn’t obvious, we’ve gotta put the foot down, times tough but we find a way
I’m on a mission, relinquish the poison with noise you can vibe to, zoned within the mic booth
Slow motion, hoping we can find truth, the future isn’t clear but through the dark we can light proof
Raise a fist for the ones that we lost, we’ve suffered enough, now we’re making them proud
Left, right, hear the boots of the army of you, no waiting till tomorrow cause the time is
Now

(Instrumental)

I know it’s hard to compete, but we’re armed to the teeth
With the weapons to win all the harshest of wars, so
Let me ask you a question, take a seat for a second
Are you willing to adapt and survive for a time with your life as a warzone?

I know it’s hard to compete, but we’re armed to the teeth
With the weapons to win all the harshest of wars, so
Let me ask you a question, take a seat for a second
Are you willing to adapt and survive for a time with your life as a warzone?

    Take a pill, it'll help the stress, smoke a joint, take a shot, let it vent… loved what you did there. Mate this track is awesome. Your sub count is way to low for what you are making.
