Brings me up before coming down
Every problem has a temporary solution
Impatience is the virtue
I must fill my needs
Tortured now and will surrender
To anything that can be sold
An emptiness that can't endure
I need this to be whole
Happiness is perceived and lost
Touch it for a second and then disappears forever

I need this right now
Dont talk me out of it
Later consequences no matter
We live for the present
As the light dims then fades
We must blame someone for this waste
Eventually the dreams shatter
Nothing is broken after

Subdue this vision before it happens
Intuition is a powerful lie
Nothing will ever happen
Before the wisdom starts to die
Rethink the advice I'm given
Easier way brings pleasure momentarily
A seed has been planted wilts and dies
Possesions fill up your life
Happiness is perceived and lost
Touch it for a second and then disappears forever

I need this right now
Dont talk me out of it
Later consequences no matter
We live for the present
As the light dims then fades
We must blame someone for this waste
Eventually the dreams shatter
Nothing is broken after

So important
I need it!
So temporary
I want it!
Superficial

I need this right now
Dont talk me out of it
Later consequences no matter
We live for the present
As the light dims then fades
We must blame someone for this waste
Eventually the dreams shatter
Nothing is broken after
Yea nothing is broken after
Wasn't nothing to be broken

I'm tired of trying

    General CommentI love the lyrics to this song. I'm pretty sure this song is talking about impatient people who just can't wait for stuff, anyways cool lyrics. I had really never heard of this band Half-Massed but from reading through their lyrics I absolutely love em.
