lyrics

I was sent to defeat all your demons
And to a lasting paradise
I have wandered these lands
And seen all that they have
Through a humble
Less than perfect pair of eyes

But I sharpened my teeth
On a stone of bad luck
And I'm discovering the freedom
There can be in giving up

I've been having all these strange visions lately
I keep dreaming that I'm standing face to face
With the man that I was
Just a few years ago
And he wears a look
Of disgust and disgrace

He calls me a sellout
And I call him a child
And I say to him "Don't worry
You'll be seeing things my way in a little while"

And the truth is that I feel like I'm arriving
Like maybe being no one really ain't so bad
Let the weight of the world
Rest on somebody else
Along with all the other shackles that I had

I will always evolve
I will live and breathe art
I will think with my head
And love with all my heart
