lyrics

Am I afraid of reality, or is it the other way round
I think the world is scared of me, I’m safe and sound but I can’t gain ground
No I can’t gain ground

Some days I feel like a pile of shit, I wanna quit and leave it all behind
I thought I’d be something by 26, won’t let my excuses run my life
Won’t let em ruin my life anymore

My throat is sore
But I keep yelling and begging for more
Of the same old shit that got me here before

We keep playing these familiar games and we’re running in circles again
We still got loads and loads of promises to break, so we’re not ready to give in
I still got songs to sing

One step forward and a giant jump back, you get used to this routine
Wondering where my life went off track, I go back to find out and come clean
Don’t wanna rinse and repeat anymore

My throat is sore
But I keep yelling and begging for more
Of the same old shit that got me here before

Am I afraid of reality, or is it the other way round
Am I afraid of reality, or is it the other way round
Despite our huge disparity, the both of us have found
A bit of common ground
