Gravitating towards the grave all we do is grow and learn Moving forward isn't easy but we sure as hell will try I can't sit still but that motion takes me nowhere If I'm being honest I can't picture myself in 10 years everyone's so set in stone while I'm as stable as the sand If I'm being honest I can't picture myself in 10 years Everyone else is busy stacking concrete to build major cities to represent all of their accomplishments I want to build the biggest city But I have no motivation I’ve got a weak foundation but I swear I’ll leave this earth with a smile on my face If I'm being honest I can't picture myself in 10 years everyone's so set in stone while I'm as stable as the sand If I'm being honest I can't picture myself in 10 years Giving up again with another excuse for the constant abuse going on in my head it's keeping me company inside this mess I created tossed aside again I fixed it before I drew up a map and I followed it home but if I'm being honest I can't picture that happening again If I'm being honest I can't picture myself in 10 in 10 years If I'm being honest I can't picture myself in 10 years everyone's so set in stone while I'm as stable as the sand If I'm being honest I can't picture myself in 10 years

Bent Pine 03:05
Dad said he always has a backup plan so he never feels like the world is ending (tell me was the time worth spending?) “don’t rest your life on one decision” (inconsistent with a single vision) all he wants is for me to succeed Stomp the hell out of my head because maybe if my thoughts are flattened I’ll be just a bit more organized and I can fix every single fuck up that I’ve garnered so far On the side of bent pine flat tire just like my life full of distractions and depending on others to get things right I'm too afraid to take control to mend myself complete myself I'm too afraid to take control to mend myself To do it with no help Stomp the hell out of my head because maybe if my thoughts are flattened I’ll be just a bit more organized and I can fix every single fuck up that I’ve garnered so far On the side of bent pine flat tire just like my life full of distractions and depending on others to get things right

Rough Draft 03:16
I've become a floater opportunity knocks and I just close the door and I don't wanna be another stain on the floor My footprints are light My steps are quiet I don't think I'll ever be important The rhythm never changes only the tempo sways and I'm drowning always drowning My footprints are light My steps are quiet I don't think I'll ever be important The rhythm never changes only the tempo sways and I'm drowning always drowning Will I ever make an impact? Will I ever accomplish anything at all? I'm out of touch and time's a blur to me I can’t sit still but i can’t avoid the collisions uplifted by my own dreams held down by indecisions I can’t sit still I can’t sit I've become a floater opportunity knocks and I just close the door and I don't wanna be another stain on the floor My life is a rough draft of things I can’t get past the good and the bad overlap and at the end when it’s all scrapped I’ll be the example of what not to be I've become a floater opportunity knocks and I just close the door and I don't wanna be another stain on the floor

Standstill 03:01
Stop romanticizing the smell of the pouring rain I promise the pinnacle of your life isn’t the roaring pain I didn’t ask to be born I didn’t ask to be me while i’m here why not attempt to make this life worth living I need to change my way of thinking because my current state of mind will always have me sinking Someday I’ll finally grasp what I’ve been chasing after I want my journey to be filled with laughter I’m at a standstill I don’t know what to feel but I guess I’ll just figure it out~ I just can’t wait to fill my head with all the best memories in the end I need to change my way of thinking [I need to change x2] because my current state of mind will always have me sinking Someday I’ll finally grasp what I’ve been chasing after I want my journey to be filled with laughter I want my journey to be filled with laughter
