about

Track 6 from the Nine Fingers EP

lyrics

I'm staring into a vacant reflection
I cannot help but think about
What has not yet been achieved
There’s always more to come
Cause when times are hard
You find out who your friends are
They’re the ones who keep by your side
Even when you have to go it alone

Don’t know what I want
Don’t know how I feel
My misery has been concealed
Time after time

I'm tied between being
And being someone
Will there ever be a name for myself
Or a legacy live left alone

I have wanted something so much
In my whole life
But the work is taking its toll
It’s always seeming way too much

Now does my heart still beat at all?
It feels just like the pulse has gone
This isn't what I thought it would be
It’s hard and the strain might be killing me

I'm gunna hold on
And never let go
These dreams of mine are stories yet told

I don’t remember where I'm from
I don’t know who the fuck I am
This is my hunting ground
And I will slay my demons down

This is a dream that I have
When awake and asleep
I have never really spoken to anyone
No one ever knows the truth

I’ll take my coat cause if the heavens open
I don’t wanna be anywhere close to hell
Sat watching the world come alive
Day by day my memories collide

I'm the skater kid that could not skate
The city urbanite that lives in the suburbs
The high roller with no money
And the fighting type with no muscle

I think I have lost my mind
This foe of mine is the tired me
That is trapped inside the thoughts that
Cast shadows on bright light days
At some point my life will fade away
I said time will tell
But the clocks ran out
One day I hope to see myself
In another light
When skies thicken black
Will we ever again shine bright

I don’t know where I'm from
I don’t know who the fuck I am
This is my hunting ground
And I will slay my demons down

I'm gunna hold on and never let go
These dreams of mine are stories yet told
Does my heart beat alone?
It seems as though the pulse has gone
This will always mean more to me
