Hey I didn't want to give this up, I didn't
I didn't want to throw it all away
Said I'm forever, never go, I didn't, I didn't leave it
Watching from a sinking ship
Hear the record skip
Fearful in my bones
Am I alive or am I dying inside just to get by
I'm so sick and tired of the lie in my life
I'm so sick and tired of the fire that won't ignite
I'm sick of myself already, get to me, taking everything that I'm supposed to be
Hey I didn't want to give this up, I didn't
Hey I didn't want to throw it all away
Said I'm forever, never go, I didn't, I didn't leave this
States up and to Japan
I'm a complicated man
I used to never stand up
Now I won't back down don't try to shut me up
I'm so sick and tired of the lie in my life
I'm so sick and tired of the fire that won't ignite
I'm sick of myself already, you'll get to me taking everything that I'm supposed to be
Hey I didn't want to give this up, I didn't
Hey I didn't want to throw it all away
Said I'm forever never go
I didn't leave it
I didn't want to give this up, I didn't
I didn't want to throw it all away
Said I'm forever never go
I didn't, take that, take it out, take it up

    General CommentProbably one of the strongest songs on the album, a little more indie rock than TRS is used to. A bit Farewell, The Maine, The Morning Of,---ish...

    I think this song is just about Bryce never having given up on his creativity in attempts of trying to "make it" in the industry and now he's actually getting somewhere and showing that he never had to compromise his integrity to do so.

    General CommentThis one of the instantly lovable songs on this album.
    I think many of the songs on this album revolve around the idea of finding your worth in yourself,
    i.e. you gotta believe, let you go, and this song.

    "i'm sick of myself for letting you get to me, taking everything I'm suppose to believe"
    I have the lyric book, ^ this is legitimate :)

    personally for Bryce, I think this song is about him not wanting to have to give up making music the way he does, almost like he feels like his is on the verge of deciding between giving up music, or making it the way most musicians do in the industry to just make money.

    In a more general way I think this song is more about finding value in yourself, and in your work, that even if it means nothing to anyone else, if it means something to you, that is so much more than what anyone else could ever think, this song is sort of a fight, it's like he realizing that if he doesn't want "to give it up" it means something,

    just my take on this song.
