lyrics

if i spoke like a child
that would make me innocent but still trapped in captivity
therefore i run straight through speed trials
all the while racking up vividly amazing dreams
lost in thought sorta like the way things get lost in translation
hesitation is a big step right towards nothing
not even a simple explanation
positive energy activates the right thing
verbal lightning in a bottle
full throttle lyricism
victim of the moment with no expectations for tomorrow
what motivates me?
same thing that weighs me down to the depths of the soul
it's a passion burning like no other man's
yet it's not something i control

so i'm gonna stop a second
think about it
try to find space in my overcrowded head
for every single word that i've said
is an s-o-s to those who've been misled

we take one giant step towards madness
for each baby step we take towards sanity
can it be that we're easing our pace for pride's sake?
the evil stepson of vanity
slow and steady was the lesson we were taught
but that gameplan won't suit a rat race
we should relearn the lessons we forgot
those are the rules that apply to that place
we should question all things in reason
a change of a season doesn't need our approval
most things work fine in the natural design
and would be efficient with our removal
that includes circumstances of the heart
mind over matter and natural selection
some things just go without question
if you take a hint to life's subtle suggestions

so i'm gonna stop a second
think about it
try to find space in my overcrowded head
for every single word that i've said
is an s-o-s to those who've been misled

i can see your sadness and it's lovely
it radiates right through your tough skin
born within this here foggy lullaby
with intents of empty space it can fill in
one looks like an opportunity
one looks something like a meaningful existence
one looks like a mystery train on an unknown track
traveling a long distance
my plan's always been a clean break from the norm
form with an origin of oddity
just so i can clearly demonstrate how to transform
unchained thought into a commodity
my spotless mind shines eternal
a joy forever
behold it please as these things become one more artifact
that gets stacked into past due memories

so i'm gonna stop a second
think about it
try to find space in my overcrowded head
for every single word that i've said
is an s-o-s to those who've been misled
