buckle down. bury my fate. let's go in another direction. responsibility caught up with me too slow was the rate of affection. caught soft in a midnight thought cause i wasn't paying attention. the mistakes and stakes keeping me from doing the same. i can't say goodbye to my innocence and say hello to consequence. i can't go on living life like this. it doesn't make any sense. heart sinks. gut starts to go. can't think cause i've lost my perception. head swells. voice becomes dull. can't yell cause i've got no projection. locked tight in my mindsets' blight and i've got no way to protect it. the mistakes and the stakes keep me from doing the same. kick back and settle down. let it take. "go ahead and do what you want to do." what would they say on the day i hit the brakes? i'm sure they'd be singing a different tune. kick down the hourglass. let it break. i just did what i wanted to. run my fingers through the sand that it makes, pick it up then i'll throw it in your face. that's right.

    General Commenti'm kinda takin it for face value, maybe he says how he would love to be some way, but he cant be because maybe someone relies on him or possibly he tries to please people this certain way, and people always tell him well why dont you do it, or maybe the person that relies on him says well you can do that do whatever you want, and then if he even tries something close to they tell him he can do, then they get pissy about it, so pretty much their hypocrites, this is a very very simple explanation for it, its hard to read some of those lyrics, could also have something to do with maybe something that he feels guilty about but shouldnt really
