Mental Patience

from The Wrong Target by SMOTZ & Benji Lee



Gang vocals by Jacob hemenway, Eric kelly & amy boswell


I thought i would take my time, but i feel fine getting ahead of our plans again. I thought I could make my mind up well before I jumped right back in to the same mix ripped up the map, lost the compass. this is all I ever wanted, so why do I recall trying hard to forget my last thoughts? the second that I move my mind to any other goal behind, I already forget what it was. //

I'm waiting for the end.waiting for the end of the world and I'm racing toward the edge. waiting for the end of the world. //

Everybody's preaching "no regrets" but I've got no feeling left in my finger tips. can't get a grip.
I've been holding on so tight to my own devices That I just can't pretend That I've got my mind open, 'Cause I'm given all I ever wanted. so why do I hold it against you when I let it go. Is failure set in stone? I kill today to get tomorrow, blow every second I borrow. I'm a loose canon, abandoning this ship every time I feel the waves hit. //

They said I can't see the forest for the trees, but I am over everything. Can't see the trees because I'm watching the birds fly by ahead of me. somewhere down below I hear the sound of chainsaws chopping down the life I should be living. I'm busy anticipating the skyline just to see If what's to come is what I want, If not I'll make it happen And if I can't, I'll find someone who can and crown them my captain, but I'm prone to mutiny. the second I see that things aren't stacking the way that I wish, I'll sink this ship, go down with it and ask what happened.

So impatient I kill myself trying to get to the end of this. I resent how I let it get to me every time I remember my past //

and You pull me back to the present, Help me find what I've got to lose.
When I lose my mind I guess I'll have to let you slow my steps just to prove.
