Every day is night, walk into the light Months of darkness, months of rain, months of cold As I wait, under the grey sky Rays of light, puncture through It warms the skin, I take, it all in Embrace the sun, before the darkness comes again Live under clouds, the cold seeps in, creeps in your mind Hope for light, it comes back every year
Forget 01:58
The time it takes to learn, is more time than it takes to forget The time I took to get where I’m at, I’ll never get back Forget the people that doubted me, told me give up, did not believe Told me to sellout all the things I love They must be confused of, where I come from I will walk, until my feet bleed I will climb, the tallest trees And so what if I fall, get back up And I’ll move from a crawl, get back up, run again
Cold Call 01:06
Grateful, an understatement Gratitude, never enough Everyday actions have, cause and effect It will always shape me, it will always haunt me Think about your random act of kindness, gives me hope For humanity, on my darkest days Cold call To show gratitude One year passed One year I wouldn’t have Thank you for your time Thank you for your time Thank you for your time Thank you for a life
Only to Hide 01:55
I find comfort in knowing, do you find it in make believe In pretend, ignore the truth, that surrounds you Choosing lies, choose what feels best I can’t ignore, I can’t pretend, can’t lie, to myself Turn a blind eye to what’s in front of you When you push it away, push it down inside To keep from surfacing, only to hide Everything is eating us, from the inside, from the outside in We are being poisoned, physically and from the mind I can’t lie, I won’t lie to myself
Anger Means 02:33
By a Thread 01:57
By a thread We are tied We’re entwined How did we unwind I’ve studied books on knots, wish I could find the strongest one grab both ends of that thread tight with my teeth and hand Because I miss you, because we’ve been estranged I no longer see myself in you, probably feel the same They say distance makes the heart grow fonder But I feel like I can no longer relate We can’t communicate Both born stubborn, both to choose our own path As we move, in different directions As our threads become too tight As we lose that deep connection By a thread We are tied We’re entwined As we unwind
You think it’s bad now, it only gets worse You cheered yourselves on, as you stood in awe of a myth Thought you were counting cards, you thought, you had the house fooled As you hold your breath so sure, you pass the test, you stood in awe of a myth I’m not shocked and I’m not surprised While you said you were building, and gaining ground Told to wait and, see in time As the mirage, in the sand disappears with time You feel justified to describe, your loss as a win As rejection of self reflection is off the table All cards will just blow, blow in the wind Pat yourselves on the back, but don’t look me in the eyes You say you tried your best when we all know, you have nothing to show Nothing was gained Nothing of real substance, nothing really changed The house always wins when you’re playing their game They’re trained to win and paid to win
