It’s been like painting from memory,
But a memory that’s not mine
I've been pushing paint where i though it should go.
Trying to pick hues to compliment colors that I have yet to see.
Painting spring when all I’ve ever known is fall. And winter was the expectation.
Aren’t we all so sick of always falling short?
I have been for some time.
So let’s leave words for the defining,
And let brushstrokes guide the titles.
We've been summed up too neatly by old tittles that we thought bestowed insight.
This life is more than what you claim
My only concern is how I define: "peace of mind."

    My Interpretationthis song is fucking awesome.
    to me, the lyrics of this song convey the message that he is done living up to other people's expectations. he was sick of trying so hard to accomplish this and often failing. he has basically decided that his only concern is his personal well-being.
