lyrics

Dreamed all I could
Your words took me far
I just want to make it to where it doesn't end
Have not panicked
its just I noticed the edge
Did it catch your attention
Its possible you missed it

There aren't enough places I could be
Excuses ever present
To keep us in check
Maybe there are too many
Ways to hinder my progression
Your hand by my side
While the other holds a knife
Ready to strike
Be quick to decide
Doors keeps closing uncontended

You started to push me away
And honestly I'm done pushing back
I'm done with your fake conscience
Your ego's too high to climb

So step out of the cage
We built a key some time ago
A ruined image isn't worth the risk
Kept it too close to surface
So step out of the cage
We built a key some time ago
Hiding provoked a jailbreak
Don't say you lost it

Summer's coming a bit too fast
The waves
The destination
Roads not trekked
Feeling impatient
Awaiting
The skies forecast our postulation

My speeches are so sharp
they're practically daggers
I'll use them to slit your throat
And usurp your throne
Remember you told me to wait
but lady this ship is leaving
Away
I have history yet unwritten

I have hung like a doll from a crane
Falling over and under again
This prize still unclaimed
Riches won't grant an easy win

I have hung like a doll from a crane
Falling over and under again
Riches won't grant an easy win
This is a test of perseverance

My speeches are so sharp
they're practically daggers
I'll use them to slit your throat
And usurp your throne
Remember you told me to wait
but lady this ship is leaving
Away
I have history yet unwritten

A future within grasp
Are my words reaching?
The chance to link hearts
But will you really mean it?
We've established the difficulty
We've established the challenge
I'll back away from the precipice
And find the right trail
