Pursue your dreams and chase it, don’t escape it…create it and see where it takes you. Don’t let the hate get to you. Take it down low where they won’t expect it, they won’t see it coming cause they thought you were doing nothing, when you were making something then release it, walls shaking, jaw dropping, leaving them standing speechless…
Music saved me once and it’ll save me again, save me once, save me twice as I’m in this life rolling the dice, wanting the odds to be on my side. I’m sick of this selfish life.
Struggle in finding joy in the corruption, misconception, the illusion that everything should be fine. Sadness hidden with a smile…forcing happiness down my throat, stuck up in the clouds, mind sealed with a vault… In my weakness I find strength, in my weakness I find strength.
Music save me again, as I’m slipping, you’re the reason I’m still breathing, the more I’m singing, my soul searching for the hope that I’m needing…joy in these sorrows are dying. I’m singing through what I’m feeling, alone in the car cause I need you now, without you there is no sound. When no ones around the music plays loud, your voice is amongst the clouds. Hear me now, I need you now, prayers screaming out loud, my fears creeping cause they know I’m slipping, without you I’m nothing. I need you now.
Is it that the songs I write hide what feelings I have left inside, dead inside, coming back to life. I tried to be apart from you when turns out your just like me, my dark side friends with me even when it tries to fight me and eat me alive but, maybe falling down is what keeps me alive…its in these beats I use to fuel this fuse. Haters are amused, but it’s that feeling that’ll motivate when some can hate, but it opens up the emotional gate, to sit down and create what you didn’t see coming, to you may be nothing but to me it sparks something…music that saves me even when I feel like nothing.
I may be down but I’m not out, I’m not giving into what my head deceives me, this disbelief…faith in this idea of loneliness. Keep going, keep driving, it’ll be ok, don’t give into the fatality that everybody sucks, it’s not that’s it’s not fair even when it feels like nobody cares, carry on, stay true what made you, the music alive inside you.
Don’t, enemy, crow over me.
I’m down, but I’m not out.
I’m sitting in the dark right now,
but God is my light.
I can take God’s punishing rage.
I deserve it—I sinned.
But it’s not forever. He’s on my side
and is going to get me out of this.
He’ll turn on the lights and show me his ways.
I’ll see the whole picture and how right he is.
And my enemy will see it, too,
and be discredited—yes, disgraced!
This enemy who kept taunting,
“So where is this God of yours?”
I’m going to see it with these, my own eyes—
my enemy disgraced, trash in the gutter.
