Underneath anything rational
hides a madness
And when you look for sanity
all you find is a mess
Mistakes are only natural
when you're moving too fast
Before you go and do anything radical
remember past will stay past
Now all I want is
Your fears they're gonna disappear
by the time you get home
Listen to the birds, you can find 'em here
why not give it a go?
I absorb any kind of energy
so don't push it too far
But as long as the sun keeps coming back to me
I ain't taking it hard
Now I'll dance
I've become obsessed over a success,
Teach me how not to be afraid
Had a dream about fish, I wonder what
Who would've thought taking care of your hopes
is harder than it seems?
Don't you know the grass is always greener
when you try to compare?
Can you be sure that grass is cleaner?
If you can't, you know it's not fair
Now we gon'
Track Name: Regimen
If it’s a sign, why not embrace it?
Opportunities, can’t always chase ‘em
From this point on, I gotta face reality
Nothing’s for sure, no one is special
It ain’t about you, though you got potential
We need a cure, our ego is simply over-done
This rehab is so irritating
Life itself intoxicates me
I’m out of ways to ease the pain
That I, myself, make
So If you wanna make it happen, OK
There’s no alternative, you gotta change your ways
Don’t even think about it, it’s only a phase
When the water gets too deep and you can’t stay
The shore ain’t that far
Adrenaline, don’t take it from me
Body and soul, can’t live without it
Can’t skip all that noise, I’m destructed
By my messy thoughts
Therapy is so frustrating
But I’m the one who let the toxic in
It's hard to tell what’s better
when you only know one lane
So If you wanna make it happen, OK...
Can’t tell right from wrong, shit is too subjective
Life of excess is a matter of perspective
Why do we need all these extra stuff in our mouths?
Fear of missing out, that’s why we’re blurry
I want a big house, I’m in a hurry
Take a deep breath, swallow the pride that’s in your throat
Forget about the Instant pleasures
Now is not the time to measure (things
If we treat ourselves like treasure
We could heal
