lyrics

That was our motto, “don’t take it serious”
I guess you’re too good for songs like ‘Red Period’
I know they’re stupid, that’s the whole point
But you’ve gotta realize that you’ve got a choice
You never had to do this for anybody but yourself
But now it seems you’re needing everybody’s help
Caring about people that don’t care for you
And getting frikkin’ pissed when someone says “Steffen who?”
And what’s this ‘Steffo’ crap? It’s dumb, what happened to
‘Homeslice’, no lies, just having fun, ya know?
I don’t know what happened over time
In, fact I don’t wanna know, save your line of defense
You’ve lost it, thanks for giving me something
To look forward to, more talkin’. You know, say what you
Want about me, I’m not chasing ghosts, I’m actually free
ENTIRE OF ITSELF NO MAN IS AN ISLAND
MINE IS A PARADIGM OF TWO DIFFERENT MINDSETS
AND I DON’T MIND THE INTERNAL FIGHTING...
THE ALTERNATIVE’S BETTER THAN DENYING...
EVERY MAN IS A PART OF THE MAIN CONTINENT
BUT I’M LEFT ON THE DOCK THAT’S ABOUT TO DRIFT
I CAN SEE THE PANGEA FROM THE DISTANCE
BUT HALF OF ME WAITED AND MISSED IT
I’m numb, I’ve run out of steam, I get stuck
And all I’ve got to show for it’s a beer gut.
Look, I thought I had the solution, ideas, a purpose
A reason for thinking that my passion is working
I’m not trying to be serious, I just need the respect
I haven’t got much left but to be depressed
And saying I’ve lost it? Yeah, you never had it
So quit acting like your happiness is anything but magic
“So whaddya gonna do when you’re workin’ ONE job”
“And you can’t do a show cause it’s not your day off”
“Thinkin’ man I’m getting nowhere, wish I was fired”
“Can’t remember the last time that you were admired”
And hey swearing isn’t cool, it just shows a display
Of you being too dumb to think of anything else to say
I’m not saying that I have all the answers
But I’m telling ya, I’m getting them a little bit faster
You have to have the passion, the knowhow the money
(You have to have the passion, the drive, that’s all)
When the last CD dropped, it flopped, nobody cared
So what happens when the passion dissipates and you fall?
(You have to get up.) I DO (No, you don’t.)
(You have to have fun.) I DO (No, you don’t)
(You have to quit comparing yourself, ‘cause there’s)
(Always someone better, just do what you want, and have HOPE)
I need to find the grey area (NO! Screw a balance!)
(Just tip the scale, you don’t have to have it)
No, not with them, but I do with you
And it’s not a grey area, it’s more like BLUE
I won’t forget you, but I’m sorry, I’m taking you apart
And I’m taking the pieces that I want, to heart
Old, New, Borrowed, Blue
x4 guys left, MPFM take two.
