To a time more innocent and pure
When we bared or hapless souls
To this fucked up world
Our Hearts sewn on our sleeves
We could have tackled anything
Countless dreams stacked to the sky
Piled a mile high
The ghosts of yesterday
Duck down these dark hallways
Leaving promises unfulfilled
Those words meant everything
A shining light to help us through our darkest days
Now survivors stand - in the ruins of what we had
Facing a struggle that never ends.
So many faces have come and gone
Once and army, we’ve been left to stand alone
Times change and people change
Was this all just a game?
Played by kids with an alternate vision
Last grasp at youth before this adult prison
Can we not grow up and maintain our ideals?
Don’t ever forsake how you feel.
Track Name: Finding Grip
Arms stretched out
Grasping - struggling
To hold what’s within reach
Dangling at tips of my fingers
If I could only find a way to grip
I’ve gone too far
There’s no giving up now
Too late to turn my back
I refuse to ditch these dreams
The only obstacle stopping me is me.
Life isn't easy
I’ve walked away from less
Struggling to find a firm grip
These self built walls keep me from my dreams
Within the confines of my mind
Reaching deep inside
Overcoming all this self doubt
Reach deep inside
And just let it all out.
Defy - What blocks your mind.
Sometimes finding grip
Is enough to make you sink or swim
Has you questioning your own ideals
Self doubt takes over your power of presence
You can reach inside
Or you can just throw this all away
And be left with regrets of what could have been -
Had you stuck this out.
Breathe In -
It won’t get any easier than this
Breathe Out -
It’s only you that makes it harder.
