lyrics

247 verse 1

want to live
but i feel the breath slipping of the end of my tongue
been around the world once and that's the end of my run
done
right back to the square i started from
trying to be ain’t enough at cost of lost freedom
- out the gate i was born to serve a mandate
plained fate to work a fast chain and expand late
crossed the river to a different side of the track
opened the mind frame never think of turning back
lost
more like i’m on a mission
to form a vision
the morning listens
for the dawn of my decision
sometimes i feel i’m at the end of the rope
hanging on with one hand
as the abbiss looms below
losing the go
slow against this uphill approach
don’t want it given to me
but at least let me close
on the same level rather than being juxtaposed
only time knows
which way the trump wind will blow

hook


you don’t hear me
till i get loud enough
you don’t see me
unless they break out the cuffs
you don’t need me
put me in stripes and lock me up
living under the show lights your bond to rust
