COLD OPEN, I'm hoping to hit you in your soul
That moment, the minute you know you're on your own
Be broken, surrender your sense of self-control
Still holding, but maybe it's time to let you go

Or maybe it's time to let you know
That pretty soon the Earth is gonna overflow
Vibration, it sinks down deeper than the soil
And I'll take it, the chance to give you everything

That I am, revealing what is left
I'll give you all I've got. I'll give you my last breath
Show you the meaning of living that's revealed in death
But I've got no answers. It's only what I've heard

No, it's never enough
Some people run around, others look above
I think the question stands between fear and love
If the latter resonates then reach and raise your hands up


COLD OPEN, glad I got your attention
See, my ego is in need of a mention
And I've been missing for a minute
Tell me how did you spend it?
Cause I tend to waste a lot of time

You're on my mind
And I don't know what to do about it
And I don't know what to do without you
You're withholding the things that used to seem so plain
And I'm scared by the idea of perpetual change

But instead of doing nothing
Gonna linger while I'm young
I've got my finger on the button
I'm a singer on a Sunday
I'm a college grad and a half
Rapped to watch you laugh
Lied to state a fact, called to take it back

But it's never enough
Be the chair behind you when your feet are giving up
I know that time's are tough. I know that life is loud
But I'll take it how I get it as long as you will allow, yeah


COLD OPEN, I need you to listen further
Cause even beginnings all have an end
Even the negative sky shines again
Even enemies fall, the ground embraces them
Replacing the men with energy

Dark matter's visibility, freeing the demon in me
Seeing the need in your stare
So take my eyes and turn them into glasses
So when our gazes meet maybe you can see past

I've got one more month of living in this house
You said one more year, now you're trying to get out
Give me one reason not to give this up
You said one last time, and despite that I'll always be

Never enough
Some people lack faith, I don't got trust
The only thing that I wanted was to offer my help
Close the distance with you
And to try to see something beyond myself

(sampled voice)
"The beginning of a journey. When you begin the process of CLOSURE, and accept the change that follows... the end is always the same."
