lyrics

Picture being locked in a position.
Your hands in chains, envision the words and just listen.
There's no escape, it's just a state.
There's no way to make an incision.
The strangling hands of fate will mangle.
You better go make a decision.
There's no time to be shedding them tears,
You actually gotta be making a difference.
To top it off, you're fretting daily.
You're sweating bullets and your color is fading.
You're caught in thought. You try to cough,
But that's no what's causing your throat to be aching.
You're waking up every night in a cold sweat,
Taking in life with the beat of your chest.
You're wondering if tonight's the night
You'll be looking right in the face of death.
Can't grasp your life, you can't fathom time.
Is that why these questions are more
Often than not keeping you up?
They're mentally wrapping at your chamber door.
Only this time, in this rhyme,
We ain't talking about mother fucking black bird, amore.
It's your mind that you hide in this blackness.
Take it back, don't hide anymore! (It's time!)
Whether you know it or not,
You can't trade your spot. You're all that you got.
Your stomach’s in knots. Hands clammy,
Your thoughts are racing. You've obviously caught
Up to yourself. You're running a race
With no finish line to the point you forgot
Your own brain is running this thing.
You chose flight, you should have fought!

Yet again, you’re lost in the blackness,
And you can't find your way.
This veil is gradually sapping
Your strength away.
Yet again, the hands of the darkness
Have swallowed everything.
We've got to ignite the furnace
And light the way.

And when my thoughts were building up high,
I can remember when it was so easy to hide.
Just push it aside, and when this darkness
Just seemed it wouldn't subside
I remember the days when I would just
Lift my eyes to the sky and I
Now seldom shield myself. So, subtle shit
Just shakes my shell and suddenly self-loathing settles,
But I survive!
I surpass the scares and realize that I'm alive.
I am Time. I exist with my enlightened mind,
And I remind myself I'm superior.
I appear strong on the exterior,
But my insides are on fire.
I’ve gotta extinguish the fear
Before to this edge I draw too near.
So, listen here... I'm ready and willing to die.
I'm ready and willing to die!

Yet again, you’re lost in the blackness,
And you can't find your way.
This veil is gradually sapping
Your strength away.
Yet again, the hands of the darkness
Have swallowed everything.
We've got to ignite the furnace
And light the way.
