"Kick Back" as written by and Erik Leonhardt Joseph Pessia....
You've been around the block
You've been branded in scarlet
Cigarette burns on your arms
Self-infliction, escape the harm

I can see you touch yourself
Dealing with the cards you dealt
But you don't have to run away
You don't have to be afraid

Show me how to rise
(When life is kicking you kick back, don't be a victim of)
Rise above
(The mistakes that were made when you were growing up)

Show me how to rise
(A young child not taught to be an adult)
Remember how to love
(Raise your arms, you're free, don't have to give it up)

Show me how to rise
(When life is kicking you kick back, don't be a victim of)
Rise above
(The mistakes that were made when you were growing up)

Show me how to rise
(A young child not taught to be an adult)
Remember how to love
(Raise your arms, you're free, don't have to give it up)
Yourself

In the corner, fetal pose
Many friends but no one knows
Scars imprinted on your life
So your tongue you have to bite

How long will you be this way
With your dual identity
Healing happens with release
Time to stop the wrist that bleeds

Show me how to rise
(When life is kicking you kick back, don't be a victim of)
Rise above
(The mistakes that were made when you were growing up)

Show me how to rise
(A young child not taught to be an adult)
Remember how to love
(Raise your arms, you're free, don't have to give it up)

Show me how to rise
(When life is kicking you kick back, don't be a victim of)
Rise above
(The mistakes that were made when you were growing up)

Show me how to rise
(A young child not taught to be an adult)
Remember how to love
(Raise your arms, you're free, don't have to give it up)
Yourself

Show me how to rise
(Show me how to rise)
How to rise above
(How to rise above)

Show me how to rise
(Show me how to rise)
Remember how to love
(Remember how to love)

Show me how to rise
(When life is kicking you kick back, don't be a victim of)
Rise above
(The mistakes that were made when you were growing up)

Show me how to rise
(A young child not taught to be an adult),
Remember how to love
(Raise your arms, you're free, don't have to give it up)

Show me how to rise
(When life is kicking you kick back, don't be a victim of)
Rise above
(The mistakes that were made when you were growing up)

Show me how to rise
(A young child not taught to be an adult)
Remember how to love
(Raise your arms, you're free, don't have to give it up)
Yourself

    General CommentI got this by ear, so there are probably a lot of mistakes.

    The meaning is pretty obvious. It's about not letting your past mistakes that made when you were younger hold you back. It's also about being yourself.

    General CommentOkay, just a few mistakes that I noticed:
    in the beginning instead of: "
    Sick of rug burns on your arms, Self-infliction, escape the harm"
    I think it's "cigarette burns on your arms..."
    and it's "but" instead of "well" on that last line

    Chorus seems pretty accurate except I think the word "of" goes after "victim" and it's "a young child NOT TAUGHT TO BE and adult"

    "In the point of beatables" should actually be "In the corner, fetal pose"
    "so you tell me you have to fight" I think is "So your tongue you have to bite"
    and "How long will you be this way, with your dual identity?" is the next line

    That's what I got at least...

    General CommentThis is a great song by the way. I think ChubbyHugs is absolutely right about it being about being yourself. Whatever it means, love it.
