Held Down 03:35
Held Down when you come in sometimes you come in so unbelievably loathsome and feeling low when you come in contact with your reality and how time is tightening its grip and its becoming harder to breath my feet hit the pavement these streets are all wet and my dreams are getting washed down that drain again it's the same one they got washed down last and the year before that fuck i gotta get out of here and you feel so held down you feel so held cause it's piling up on top of you well i smoked two joints to try and grow wings and fly outta here but it's just made my ears ring with all this screaming that i gotta do about this stupid situation i find myself in with you when my feet hit the pavement remember it's not it's not about what you are it's about what you're not and you feel so held down you feel so held cause it's piling up on top of you

Lost and Leaning well you woke me up to say what the fuck is with these dangerous times now and we're running out of luck and it makes no sense why these accidents keep happening to us and every now and then i start wondering when we redefine the cost of lying and how we keep changing the line and these walls are thin in this box we're in but it keeps us in and out of time and every now and then i start wandering and now it's three a.m. and i'm lost and leaning on a Slowcoaster show poster that's been rained on and bleached out by the sun and i'm soaking wet i can't get over it just waiting for the light to come. but now it's three a.m. now it's three a.m. now it's three a.m. and I'm lost and leaning
