You thought I was falling apart before But at that point I still had my feet on the floor Now, I don't even see the ground anymore No clues on what I'm in store for For now or for forever more Did I drift or swim out far to far from the shore? I'm far further than a metaphor can illustrate, further than ever before Memories so distant they've been redesignated as basic lore What more can you do when you've lost your core And it was you who held open the door... ...once more
Does the score even matter when it's no longer about a win Past, present and future always battlin' While I try my damnedest to locate a viable position Cause really I just want to keep playin' or at least keep that an option And for the long run
Anyone that's ever said cash doesn't equate to fun has never had none They've never had to wonder where their next meals gonna come from Never been one wrong move away from watching your life become an undesirable one Never seen a bright future as an attainable one I'm sure we've all shared a park bench at some point with someone But has it ever been overnight, shivering, posted up with a veteran ***? Never been an unsung hero, never feasted on a moldy bun Never had to decide whether to pay some of this bill or a little bit of that one Never had a car run on hope and fumes, never relied solely on your heat to come from the sun Can't see the glass half full or half empty, a waterless situation Never looked at a gun and thought it the best possible outcome No option but to literally try to out run your problem But you can't cause you wanted to stay "grounded" so you cut every tendon So much tension, it's got ya looking at the knife again thinkin' it could relieve some Never laied at your lowest point to weak to get up and been looked down on It's a sad truth how unbelievably common it is to stumble upon... This, but ignorance is bliss so no action to fix the problem is taken You might have been one of these people had you walked in a different shoe when it all begun
You "adults," you exasperate me with your evasions and delays. You're going to have to change some of the ways that you behave. You aren't doing your homework, you haven't cleaned the planet, You aren't standing up to bullies, you haven't been sharing your things, and you're even playing with guns. And you're pretending everything's ok. You were taught better than this. Sorry, but.. You're all grounded people. And hand over those phones!
If there's really a heaven and hell, Baby you don't have to tell Me where I'm going to. Don't be afraid for my soul. I'm still alive; still in control. And for now, I have you by my side. You, who makes me feel safe and sound. You, who keeps my feet on the ground. And when we look at each other, We know we've found Heaven on earth
