lyrics

really i'm very full of things
passion without drive, aspirations unaccompanied
by skill or capability
more than anything the exuberance and thrill i feel at the thought of something different, something grand, something crisp against the mediocrity
i have settled for out of fear, leads to little more than utter exhaustion
and i know that something is not set right but soon i will be witness to my
own descent, my own shatter,
a glass worn by aged use tapped so slightly, yet enough to cause an end

stay with me please, while i alter my perception
so i can learn my well-earned lesson and make use of my spine
stay with me please, but i beg don't lessen this blow
all i need you to know is that i'll be fine; soon, guys, i'll be fine

i guess it all depends on time
and my willingness to concede
that truly i'm far, far away from where i couldn't recognize
that who i am should be who i am,
my burden born, my self not only tolerated with well-informed minds
but loved and lifted by those i've hidden from out of fear
that someday it'll be too much
and i know something is not set right
but soon i will be witness to my own vulnerability, my loss of pride
a child with arms extended, in trust and in hopes that this will not
be my end
