Every single thing I say
Every little choice I make
Every single time I wake
Every single thing I chase
Forcing a smile on my face
I wake up and come back to this place

I'm turning into a machine
With a worn out battery
I've grown tired of my routine
Lost sight of who I wanna be
Lost sight of what matters to me
But I don't even know what that means

What if I missed my destiny?
How arrogant of me to think

I've been thinking about life
Knowing someday, everybody dies
I've been wondering what I should do with my time
I've been wasting it all year
I've been acting insincere
Being held down by my fear

What if there was a plan for me
And I missed it entirely?

So did I miss my destiny?
I guess that's really up to me

I know there must be something more
Something that's worth living for
Not just to pay my bills on time
Not just to get ahead in line
So sick of living for myself
What am I worth if I'm no help?
There world is not a better place
If I just stay in the same place
So sick of living for myself
I wanna live for someone else


released May 26, 2016
John Cannon wrote and played all the things
Christopher Vandeviver at Brass Palace engineered and produced all the stuff
I have no idea who took the picture on the artwork. I'll ask my mom.
