lyrics

I woke up early

Surly from the lack of sleep the night before

Brain not operating on the level I would like it too

The doctrines i'm ascribing to all tell me the same thing

Drink your water get your rest or start prepping for an early death

But still i'm up pacing until the rays of the sun

Start creeping across the ceiling causing shadows to run

Mine hide behind the eyes over time they’ve become

The clichés to which I remain afraid ill succumb

The mid life crisis nine to fiver content with his mediocrity

Potbellied and crotchety nothing more than a wannabe

With constant thoughts of all these things

He’s scared to utter audibly

Who still continues to breath but never does it consciously

Numb to all he sees

Compassionless and pompously judging bodies different from his

because they threaten his homogeny

longing for camaraderie beyond the gossipy

there’s got be something more to this life

than being destined for death

the elephant in the room has really good manners
it makes it hard to tell him to leave
the thorn in my side has the rose still attached to it
making pain a beautiful thing (x2)

I've loved and lost

loved and lost

but still love wont lose it’s hold on me

if only I could not do it hopelessly

looking over my shoulder waiting on her to leave a hole in me

until my thoughts manifest

and to her I become a nobody

a never was

not even a has been

I smash the seed before it’s planted

Birth love in a casket

Pass the buck until i'm penniless

Measures get drastic

I keep my heart out on my sleeve

But my head in my ass

Sins of the past projected on strangers

Making mistakes is my passion

If not what would I rap about

I’m honestly asking

Song about Sunny days are enjoyable

But don’t get the same kind of reaction

Sad boy raps get

It’s a fact

the elephant in the room has really good manners
it makes it hard to tell him to leave
the thorn in my side has the rose still attached to it
making pain a beautiful thing (x2)
