"try try try again"'s easy to say
when your body isn't broken
and your feet aren't chained.
but when you're mumbling "things will be ok"
with a gun to your brain,
now i just want to control all this rage.
there was a moment in time when i swore to my mom that i'd shoot a cop's face off
or put a bomb in the middle of a federal court house in the name of Trayvon.
when they glue your eyelids to your forehead
and tape your mouth shut you can't say much
so I'm just gonna keep faith in what i love.
oh oh my my
is there anything better that we can ever achieve in this
whole whole lifetime ?
i don't want to be another martyr for a cause
grows grows wide wide
don't tell me everything is gonna work out fine
I could never find the time to design a time machine
or rewind back into a better life
those those bright lights
all they're ever gonna do is blind eyes
only really want to redefine my
life as it sits on this timeline
when i die
I will explode into the night
and take a few stars with me
to show this world
I put up a fight
try try try again's easy to say
when nobody's pulling teeth out of your bloody face
with a razor to your neck watching you suffocate.
"it'll be ok"
that's what they all say.
(inside me) there is a fire that won't stop burning
try try try
i swear i tried my best
but was left on the side of the road with a hole inside my chest
and a heart can only beat so fast 'fore it decides to rest
when it's been so stressed
and it feels like you're fighting for a single breath.
am i becoming an animal clawing away underneath my cage?
expecting to find something better outside of this world when i reach the grave?
when the nihilism sneaks into my brain
will i still keep on trying to convince myself that a human race can change?
lord wont save me
i could never put faith in make believe
so don't go pray for me
need to find the motivation just to get me to my feet
growth has painfully
taught me to lift myself up,
even when i felt numb,
when the tears have welled up
in my eyes,
bruises swelled up.
grow those great seeds.
vines can wrap around enemies.
i don't mind if no one remembers me,
but don't let this fire end with me.
they can try to kill every single goal I've ever had,
i'll just watch and laugh
knowing that all vines grow back.
