"Slow Down Kid" as written by and Anthony Jerome Martin Mark Nesler....
The pressure
It is so great
It's hard to put your foot on the break
'Cause nobody wants to get left behind
You have no choice but to get trapped in the grind

Slow down kid
I know it's hard for you
You always want to rush things
But it takes time so never mind
Those get-rich-quick schemes
They wouldn't be dreams
If they were easy to achieve

Life is crooked
You know that by now
A nice straight line has yet to be found
You don't have to move
Like the people around you do
What are you trying to prove?

Slow down kid
I know it's hard for you
You always want to rush things
But it takes time so never mind
Those get-rich-quick schemes
They wouldn't be dreams
If they were easy to achieve

You always want to rush things
(Slow down)
You always want to rush things

Slow down kid
I know that's hard for you
But that's something you've gotta do

    General Commentthis is easily my favorite song by val emmich. the way he sings sounds so meaningful. this song seems to be about wanting to grow up too fast as a teenager. he talks about how it takes time and that dreams wouldn't be dreams if they didn't take time. this is really a beautiful song about a very hard lesson to learn in life.

    General CommentThis is definitely a pretty damn good song. it has the power to depress me every single time i listen to it. that's not an easy task. but i love it nonetheless.
