This life, at it’s absolute best, is nothing more than a big mess
of everything that I think and say,
22 years but the contradiction remains

This life I’ll one day leave to the rest,
to you I salute from my head,
full of thoughts I detest
I’ve always hoped I’m not alone

Our hearts speak louder than our words
to the men we are and those we were
There’s a gap between our brains and tongues
There’s a hole in our hearts
where the men we’ll become will find their start

This life, at it’s absolute best, gives nothing more, less I confess
Everything that has made me, me,
it’s always too much, but it’s never enough

This life I’ll one day leave to the rest,
to you I give props from my chest,
full of heart brokenness
I’ve always hoped to crack this code

Heretofore, this civil war has raged and roared inside my veins
But the man I’ll be, he slowly leaves the former me inside his grave
