lyrics

I used to lay around wait for better days
Now I wake up and I stay amazed
Thinking deep thoughts in a shallow place
Hollow taste buds float sounds from different coasts
Bees carry the spores of a better case
Wind blows through trees that spark the flame
Ignites the coals that glow to show what remains
Real dudes that I've been with are still here
Some things change I guess some stays same
Tell me, what you want, what you need, do you see any difference?
Wax sealed with the compass imprint
Persistence
Five years ago that show at Taiko, where I used to bus dishes
I'm a little older now
and my old friends know there was truth to the wise
But I'm wiser now
Architect music, this the reprise

I'm still that kid that you raised in them hand me down clothes
I know sometimes I make you nervous but I promise I've grown
Reckless as I have been, I can't keep putting myself down
All these things that I am, is just you speaking through me now

Living life like tomorrow might come
but the fact it might not makes it worth the jump
I got my amp in the trunk, little skunk in the napsack
Tele strapped like I'm Bruce on 'Born To Run'
I just wish my grandma could see this
Wonder what she'd say bout what we got going on
Used to slip broccoli in my mac and cheeses
but I'd eat every bite of that shit til it's gone
Respect best shown to the memory
Through progress, head steadily
To greater heights
How come when outcome ain't what they want, some freeze up?
Ain't a victory without no fight
Tsk tsk, used to blame it on everyone, everything but myself
But I woke up, endeavored through cities of trees
and I believe I finally found myself

I'm still that kid that you raised in them hand me down clothes
I know sometimes I make you nervous but I promise I've grown
Reckless as I have been, I can't keep putting myself down
All these things that I am, is just you speaking through that

Kid that you raised in them hand me down clothes
I know sometimes I make you nervous but I promise I've grown
Reckless as I have been, I can't keep putting myself down
All these things that I am, is just you speaking through me now
