lyrics

You’re weighing your prospective life against
a list of your achievements in a row

The methodical progression of your life
and every lesson that you know
seems to go
swiftly words success out every aperture
your friends are so supportive that they’re mad at ya

But they don’t know the words rebounding in your skull
the terms reverberating round without control

Am I good
Am I smart Enough
to conclude if my spark’s bright enough
Am i rude to say that i would love some more
But before
I move am I humble enough
Is it crude to mumble Im enough
to consume the hearts and minds of who want more

they say
I know something will happen soon if not before

Content at twenty-five is like
a high-schooler who likes the way they look
and though you’ve lost the instrumental
you can hear there is potential in the hook
but what’s got you shook is
you seize the opportunity
to swing through any scrutiny
to catch you up
though beautify brutally
and truthfully
you’re only just an amateur

But they don’t know the words rebounding in your skull
the terms reverberating round without control

Am I good
Am I smart Enough
to conclude if my spark’s bright enough
Am i rude to say that i would love some more
But before
I move am I humble enough
Is it crude to mumble Im enough
to consume the hearts and minds of who want more

they say
I know something will happen soon if not before

But I’m not sure
I’m not sure
