we the willing, lead by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. we have done so much for so long with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.

useless thoughts fill my mind
but i got ‘em tricked
with that shine in my eye
i stand tall but with a paper thin spine
my voice booms but its weak
i got ‘em fooled

i hide my face with a mask
i hide my feelings
with actin’ like i have none
i don’t want ‘em to see that i’m confused
i don’t want ‘em to see i’m weak
i gotta break it
i gotta let ‘em know
but i can’t
cause i’m stuck
i gotta instigate my way outta this s***
i gotta crawl into the corner where i hide
when it goes wrong
i gotta f*** it up a little more
before i can sleep tonight
‘cause i ain’t happy
and i’m cool with that
‘cause everybody’s gotta know
if i make it to tomorrow
how amazin’
that’ll be
‘cause i’m goin’ outta my f***ing mind
can’t stop me now
open up your god d*** eyes
see what’s in front of you for once
i’m fallin’ apart
lying to your face
sayin’ i’m okay
when i’m dyin’ inside
open your eyes
