Don’t think you can stop it now
I’d like to see you try somehow
Realize that it puts it all on you
There’s nothing you can do

Right now you’re sick and tired
You’re feeling sad, you’re feeling uninspired
And the clock just won’t slow down
Like it gets it kicks, pushing you around
You around

Maybe in morning it won’t be
Quite as bad it seems

But the fact that you can’t change
The speed of sound, the reign of age
Is an understatement to, the state of mind
You’re not use to, use to

You’d be forever known
As the boy who stopped the world
And made his own

Right now you’re sick and tired
You’re feeling sad, you’re feeling uninspired
So I pray for you my friend that you’ll fall down
You’ll give in

You’ll give in

    General CommentI have it from a friend of mine who knows Aaron Sprinkle that this song was written about/for his friend David Bazaan, ie. Pedro the Lion. I don't know if Pedro is religious (I thought so, but I'm not sure), but the lyrics seem to me to be about Aaron wishing the subject of the song to just "give in" and stop wishing they could change the world, perhaps that he wishes they could "give in" to religion?
