lyrics

I left this town in a hurry
truth told, it was burning
to the ground
i got out while i still could

It all came down to a burden
of proof and a verdict
They called us out, took a count,
lined us up and it's like

Everybody's waiting for their chance just to pull the strings
so I will go out silent. Not saying anything


And so it may seem
It's not what you wanted, baby
I don't blame you
It's not misunderstanding
How they're leading you on


we keep calm and press on
make enemies with
our last hope at lost cause
if they have the same wish

it's epidemicly connected to the mental need
to be the best, pat the back, bring the kids, feed them. Shhh!

It's getting harder and harder to keep my head down
out of commission, my vision's been the best. Now
I'm finding I'm so overwhelmingly unimpressed
by local legends hell bent on convincing me they're the next sound

Oooooh, step above the let down
the system's shot but the ignition is sound
and the burning out is a burden now
You only get one shot if you built your own gun now

My dreams die when I say they do
but whether i'm speaking or sleeping I can't convince you
that success is written by my own convictions
and unless you can live off of the rhythm, you're through


And so it may seem
It's not what you wanted, baby
but I don't blame you
It's not misunderstanding
they're leading you on

Perception is king
Your crown is the product you're making
We spend our whole lives
regretting our time not wasted
Playing along


This is not a solution
but it's a step in the right direction
I've got haters on both sides
fighting over a close tied ghost ride
on a track with no traction

This is not a delusion
giving up could be improving
if your ego is all this scene has to profit
If shame's your weapon
and you've got insecurities cocked,
take your shot
but you've got the wrong target


And so it may seem
It's not what you wanted, baby
but I don't blame you
It's not misunderstanding
they're leading you on

Perception is king
Your crown is the product you're making
We spend our whole lives
regretting our time not wasted
Playing along
