I take a breath and breathe it out/
Life has been a bitch holding onto me, I'm always freaking out/
I don't play well with others, I panic in the crowd, and I'm quick to fall in love that's why I'm always on the ground/
So pick it up, pop the umbrella over my problems and understand I'll never be a man until I solve them/
And sometimes I wish that I could go back home, yeah crawl into my childhood dreams and be alone/
And that would be everything - just another boy left with nothing /
An object of security slowly losing its stuffing/
The Sumter Square slum king, looking for another motherfucking chance to re-break the broken in is something/
And that's the part I'm never going to get, growing up is more than just a mind state and owning all your debts/
Blowing out the breath I don't feel so tall, so tell me how am I supposed to reach anything, anything at all/
Anything at all/

Tell me how, Can I grow to see the change in my life, I wanted, to overcome the battle inside, what is owed to anxiety's hold is there a better way to figure it out?/

I sweep it all under the rug/
Cover up the loss found inside of me and wash it down with blood/
I was born with an option and taught to swim a flood/
But the older I become I start to humor giving up/
So pick it up, listen to all of the words in my head, and understand I'll have a shaky hand until they're said/
And I don't know if I can get my mind-state back, but I would travel to the end just to feel that grasp/
And that would be everything, speak it through the can on the line, and prophesize the future from the twinkle in my eye/
I could wrinkle up and die in the room where the dreams started talking to me constantly and dancing through the sky/
I'm alive, but growing up has proved to be a task, and left a couple daydreams broken down and smashed/
Looking through the glass I don't feel so tall/
So tell me how am I supposed to reach anything, anything at all/
Anything at all

Tell me how, Can I grow to see the change in my life, I wanted, to overcome the battle inside, what is owed to anxiety's hold is there a better way to figure it out?
