Bright & Early


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

It's the return of the complacent one 
Who gazes straight into the blazing sun and wastes his days for fun 
Trembling, the gremlin ate his lunch but ain't enough
To satiate his hunger pains, no wonder they been staying up 
The pessimistic perfectionist with the repertoire 
To render his collective more perplexed than you'd ever saw
Invested in destiny just ingesting his deadened thoughts 
And resting his head on a bed of rocks, never stops 
Questioning everything, the hood of his people
Or whether or not there is objectively a good or an evil
What it means to be free and if we could ever be fulfilled
When people build deceitful guilds and kill for beliefs of a steeple 
See I don't have the Midas touch 
'cause every item brushed becomes rusted, adjusted right to dust
Flustered, wonder when time is up and why it's such 
A hard time for me climbing up this far ride when the climate thrusts 
It's been a minute since innocence slipped away 
And ever since the sixty seconds passed I've had some shit to say 
Ambition, it's a fickle bitch, been witness to its ways 
In which it drifts into the mist in the instant you wished it stayed
Inner resistances blister amidst the friction  
Administered when I stir in the pits of indifferent conviction
A walking talking dying breathing contradiction 
Whose mind's sicknesses transition into its favorite addiction 
Listen, facts are ominous when on the fence
But your opinion prolly all depends on who you call your friends
We smoked away and all the jokes were made at my expense 
But what I lacked in common sense I'd double back in confidence 

I guess we'll never know 
Which way the river flows, or where it goes, where it goes
I suppose we'll never know  
Which way the river flows, yo

I wish to live forever, I wish I didn't sever 
Every bond that got me along going on in this endeavor
I wish to turn back time, I wanna begin again where all my friends were
When we thought we had all the answers
And every chance we had we just would discuss it
Now we're glancing at the planet and we're fucking disgusted 
Just abandoning trust we once had implanted in something 
We thought much grander than us, but in the end it was nothing, f*ck it 
Cancel all your plans, bandage up your knuckles 
And buckle up for the clusterfuck impending us and chuckle 
It sucks the fun to be the damaged one amongst the bundle 
But my clumsy luck has seemingly clung to me from the struggle
I'm puzzled, and just to make the pieces fit 
I cut them up and shuffle the ones that I need for it 
Then lose the others, enthused because of my weaknesses 
That had me practice magic back when I didn't believe in it 
Even the evil get the choice for benevolence
Though the most we'd label noble show malevolent elements 
And so it goes to show you never know who the hell it is 
You're supposed to know, although your hopes are wholly irrelevant
Check it, the question I'll raise is 
How many faces do us humans proudly display? 
Who's the actor behind the mask and who's around when it changes?
And as the real you is coming out, will they stay then?
I've seen lot of kin walking away 
More often than not it's been all of them that promised to stay 
But I'm coping, I'll hold the door open, I'll watch you and wave 
And I'll be honest wishing y'all a good day, hey

I guess we'll never know 
Which way the river flows, or where it goes, where it goes
I suppose we'll never know
Which way the river flows 

I know you hate me, I see the way you evade me 
I notice the tilt when roses wilt, don't believe you played me 
I see it all from these hallways, we evolve and go our ways 
The show it must go on and I'd be just a pawn to pause plays 
So keep your paws placed just to yourself 
Roaring and rough I got more than enough love for myself 
You're in a gutter, I wonder what're the choices of poison 
You been employing with the intent of destroying yourself, shit 
You're quick to grip the crutches, to split the spliffs and Dutches
Drinking buckets budgeted but not giving inches budging 
Bluffing and bludgeoning troubles, becoming this curmudgeon
Pissed and smudging grudges begrudged at the ones you're swift to judging 
It's ugly, and its shitty too
Because I used to love you, now I just fuckin' pity you 
It isn't pretty, you hit the city, get lit to lift the mood 
Enlisting who the f*ck ever listens through it and isn't rude 
I've never seen the point in begging for forgiveness 
Whatsoever but even less would I lend my own or give it 
So if you hold intentions for redemption forget it 
If you truly cherished our friendship, you wouldn't have quit it, get it?
I'm not an idiot darling, I'm quite the opposite 
I'm obstinately primed any time to disprove the postulate 
But you've a lot of intrusive thoughts and a pile of shit
And want it all dismissed and thus its my image that's targeted
It's remarkable how starkly the river flows
Living in frozen water, a martyr caught in his killing pose 
And so I choose to float, wondering where the cruise will go 
And where it all begun, but that's something we'll never truly know 

I guess we'll never know
Which way the river flows, or where it goes, where it goes 
It goes to show we'll never know 
Which way the river flows, yo
