I know
track: 1 album: My Minds Not Right
   
The bad part of town was wherever I stood

I was doing all the things that the old me never would

I was going through something no one ever should

I was such a mess but I was feeling really good

but all I ever wanted was to be understood

but no matter how hard I tried I never quite could.

I said all my prayers. I knocked on wood.

Then I fought with my dad and woke up the neighborhood.

Cause I used to make my parents proud.

Then all I seemed to do was let them down.

They tried to get through but I blocked em out

as the drugs made my head spin round and round.

But I got up and brushed myself off.

Learned to dismiss those delusional thoughts.

That made my life to hard and my mind too soft.

I had lots to say but couldn't get it across.

Cause living like that always comes with a cost.

I forgot all the things I"d been taught.

All I had was the memories of all I iost.

I got away with it but I needed to get caught.

I know I know there's a target on my back.

I know I know it don't gotta be like that.

I know I know I took it way too far.

I was going supernova but wanted to stay a star.

Cause all dark things must fear the light.

So I give it all I got just to be this bright.

It's my struggles that have led me to all this insight.

So now this is what I live for.

This is why I write.

I could talk a good game but that wasn't enough.

I got further than I should of on my dumb luck.

So I found myself relying on it way too much.

I was scared as hell but I tried to act tough.

My friends tried to help but I wouldn't open up.

So when they gave me their advice none of it stuck.

I just buried my feelings and kept my mouth shut.

Then I had a meltdown and my thoughts ran amok.

I can still hear dad pounding on my door.

When I was out on the ledge on the 22nd floor.

I was healing the sick, I was ending wars.

Said "you've done a lot of good God, but I can do more."

Was a game with God and I was runnin up the score.

Didn't need to win just needed something to strive for.

But I put things on the line that I couldn't afford.

Like risking my life so my old self could be restored.

There's a fire inside of every soul.

There's a flame you can use, a flame you can hold.

It's a spark that is ancient but never gets old.

It's a story that millions of pages have told.

It's about all our struggles and how we grow.

It's the same one song everybody knows.

And t's always there but it's seldom shown.

Still you can't use the heat if you've never been cold.

I know I know there's a target on my back.

I know I know it don't gotta be like that.

I know I know I took it way too far.

I was going supernova but wanted to stay a star.

Cause all dark things must fear the light.

So I give it all I got just to be this bright.

It's my struggles that have led me to all this insight.

So now this is what I live for.

This is why I write.
