Track 1
it’s been a battle just to wake and greet the day then they all disappear like sugar in my coffee a hint of sweetness but the bitterness remains the acidity devouring my body but i am learning to let go of everything i tried to hold too long ‘cause they all explode like roman candles i used to feel everything like a flame but now it’s a struggle just to feel anything i watch the world from a window on a hill everyone moving as i’m standing still but i am learning to let go of everything i tried to hold too long ‘cause they all explode like roman candles
