LEGACY OF SOUND

 

so this is the beginning
of what looks like seven years to me
but don’t get yourself all up in arms
at this life of living
you can’t see anything that selfishly
and don’t be surprised now if I leave

you would hold me back if you could
you would hold me back if you could

I want to show you the greatest version of me
without the feeling of plastic shaped into meaning
can we do it now?

“you'll never be good at what you wanted to be”
that's what my father said
like somehow I’d never measure up
to straight lines that people have inside themselves
for others that they find
who want a different kind of life

I want to show you the greatest version of me
without the feeling of plastic shaped into meaning
can we do it now?

there's eight hundred miles of pavement
that tell me I should not feel this way
but I need a new beginning
to rescue the life that silence made

I want to show you the greatest version of me
without the feeling of plastic shaped into meaning
can we do it now?
