Before you speak
Like it could mean forever
Everything you do like your body's a fortress and your minds a temple

Are the things I’m told
Through mistakes I’ve learned
I fuck up
Then I hate myself and I start to hate you too

Society’s beat
Rinse and repeat
Killing yourself to the tempo

Oops I shot myself in the foot
It hurts but I won't die
The rest of my life will just be compromised
Hopefully a short road left to climb

Cuz I got
One foot on a banana peel
The other gaping wide
Gonna be hard to dig a grave like this
Shit I’m only 25

Before you think
Like we have forever
Everything you do like your body’s a tool and your mind’s the master

Are the things I’ve found
My mistakes I’ve learned
If I fuck up
And still love myself I can start to love you too

Society’s beat
My melody
Riding my life on the harmonies

I’ll stitch my wounds and feel the burn
Of hydrogen peroxide
And carry one more scar that tells the story
Of the long road that I climbed

Cuz I got
One foot on a banana peel
The other on the gas
Wherever I land I’ll make the best of it
Shit I’m only 25
