about

Verse by Verse:
For whatever reason I was compelled to write a song that conveys absolute positivity. The inspiration stems from being young and understanding that life is all of one and only becomes more difficult as it goes on so embracing every moment is vital.

(Please interpret it as you will. My only condition is that you reflect on why you interpreted it the way you did.)

lyrics

Just if you were wondering I am doing fine,
besides the huge confusion
of this question trapped inside.
What is the direction
that I am heading in?
But I'll try to keep my head up
while remembering again that
I've been wrong before
beyond what may be right for me.
What's real is driven out of me, but on a dead end street.
Consider possibilities. The game of truth or dare.
How is one supposed to breathe when one just isn't there?
I bet that they don't breathe at all. They couldn't want this filthy air.
I've left all that I need while breaking walls to find you there.
Ive wasted opportunities and judged my minds societies.
Pacing back and forth only drives my disbelief...

…That giving up makes your let down much worse
and crying songs are babbled verse by verse.
So I'll rely on imagination.
Someone should relate with what I'm faced with.
Each of our lives can be described with words but
not a single one is ever heard.
All alone at night while you dream in bed
the song of who you are is finally written.

It's a funny thing how a clear clear drop
is sobering in a brave nonstop
drinking brigade of mindset changes;
from what was bad to joyous occasions.
Stampeding through what lies before us,
only slowed by the weight of our hearts.
We had a mind we had misplaced but I remember
we won it back in little time with open arms.

When the mood is all revealed,
and happiness is crystal clear,
the clouds will open up and we'll shout at the sun.
Making noise and starry eyed,
the caption closed for us to die
and when it is our time we won't have to question why:

…That giving up makes your let down much worse
and crying songs are babbled verse by verse.
So I'll rely on imagination.
Someone should relate with what I'm faced with.
Each of our lives can be described with words but
not a single one is ever heard.
All alone at night while you dream in bed
the song of who you are is finally written.

Someone, somewhere
sees what I see.
When foul mouthed youngsters
fly through their teens
and young men share fists
when life grinds at their wrists.
To fall back and say goodbye,
we will not live we will not die.
