So many speak without any real conviction. We long for those we care about to be better to grow and sometimes that isnt enough. They need to be real with themselves before any real honest growth can happen.
What are a few scraped knees when you can keep your mindset right? Never lie to yourself, and face what's real, as long as you feed the machine. Full steam ahead, most think that they think for themselves, but we all know most think what they're fucking told. So, where do we go from here? Because I'm tired of all the smoke and mirrors. I'm going to scream my heart out and keep this on the path that we set. I see your eyes wide as you roll down the assembly line. You've got grease for blood, afraid of the seven seas, writing songs about things I've never known you to believe. But I'll close my eyes and dream of what this means to me. Nothing worth having comes easily. Writing about the love in my heart, about the lust in my brain, about the hate in my eyes, about the pride in my veins. I am patient, and I will face my demons. Looking inward is the first to fix ourselves. Arrogance of youth becomes a fallacious belief. Sleepwalking, you fool no one but yourself. I know you're better. Machines are men. Machines and men. Machines aren't men, machines are not men. You've got grease for blood, you forgot the facts. Purge yourself, and you'll never look back.
