Held down, heavy weight Profound in great debate Look around with minds enslaved Some shrill sound, deprived and depraved I was confused, but now I'm older Learned from some symposium Head down, and chip on my shoulder Dreamt my way, my way out of boredom Become The Man you want more of Woah I'm beholden I am beholden Woah I'm beholden Benediction, always Looking bright and better days Got to be broke, to be fixin' Running wild, without restriction And I was confused, but now I'm older Learning from some, some symposium Head down, chip on my shoulder Dreamt my way out of boredom Became The Man you want more of Dreamt my way My way out of boredom Became a man The man you want more of x2
Buildings built on buildings. Pavement built on on pain The wind sang some sweet song Lament in the refrain There's no flavour in the facts we get our kicks from fiction Some belaboured sense of tact Some hierarchy of diction Alleyways backlanes sidewalks Can't seem to find my way home Can't seem to find the right block Under the sirens and the horns Got a whole lot of love Whole lot of love Freedom ain't enough Use me up Use me up Curb cuts. Health care too Golden means. Gold Truths Modern love. Some sick ruse. Rottened up. Ain't hot enough for you. We're living through simple Metaphysical rituals The animal the soul goes wild Together we heal The better we feel To celebrate real and smile
Paid for the paper Hand me a pen I'll be writing home now Heaven sent Whoa someone found me And I need not repent Arise with the tide See the see like I meant Grew up in lion city Grew old under your wing Biting the hand that fed me Tracing scars I'm on the brink Oh pains of youth and grains of truth Fortune, forfeits, it's all for you Through force of hand I understand And as a man I comprehend Yeah as a man I comprehend Yet somehow never took a stand I just followed like a sheep But damn these waters run so deep In the kitchen, cut and cook On a mission, deeper looks At the piano, sweeter hooks Ain't no such thing as half way crooks
We were a good thing Maybe subtle underused I wanted the real thing I was not confused Ready and willing To forgo the truce Able and giving If you became my muse To tell you the truth I got used to feeling used To make you feel brand new Thunder fervent Undercurrent Blundered service Don't get it misconstrued Trauma and drama Bottomless saga Heavy on throttle A power abused Strength grace and wit Order from within More warm than cold Some young old souls In a world thats getting small Humbled, still, adorned In my mind i was reborn In your eyes i saw the scorn
