about

A song about the search for happiness and not knowing what the fuck to do. It's about trying to overcome depression and trying your hardest and the world beating the shit out of you anyway. It's also about regretting the opportunities you didn't take. This song is all over the place. This is the first song I've done where I did all of the vocals. Definite learning experience.

lyrics

Are they right? If I fly to the sun am I cursed to burn and
Crash to the ground, burst into flames
Are they right? If I can't win the fight are they going to come and
Stomp on your head, feed you the pavement

Make me laugh, make me dance, make me sing
Make me run, make me cry, make me scream

Carry on as you were
Pretend that I'm not even here
Do exactly what you were planning on doing anyway
I wouldn't want to interrupt what was going so well

(Now)
You search for a sign
(Or is it now)
Some proof of a reason
(You're up to your neck in the search for the truth)
When suddenly the epiphany that

We can laugh, we can dance, we can sing
Yet we run, yet we cry, yet we scream
Despite the best of intentions you crash to the ground
Burst into flames
Despite all of your strength they stomp on your head
Feed you the pavement
(Are they right? If I fly to the sun am I cursed to burn and
Crash to the ground, burst into flames
Are they right? If I can't win the fight are they going to come and
Stomp on your head, feed you the pavement
Make me laugh, make me dance, make me sing
Make me run, make me cry, make me scream)

I can't seem to get anything right
I never seem to get anything right

You're up to your neck
In the waves of regret
Optimist or pessimist
You get what you expect
Sick to the teeth
Of the shit you don't need
Pessimist or optimist
What you expect is what you see

(Now)
You search for a sign
(Or is it now)
Some proof of a reason
(You're sick of the wonder obstructing your view)
When suddenly the epiphany that

We can laugh, we can dance, we can sing
Yet we run, yet we cry, yet we scream
Despite the best of intentions you crash to the ground
Burst into flames
Despite all of your strength they stomp on your head
Feed you the pavement
(Are they right? If I fly to the sun am I cursed to burn and
Crash to the ground, burst into flames
Are they right? If I can't win the fight are they going to come and
Stomp on your head, feed you the pavement
Make me laugh, make me dance, make me sing
Make me run, make me cry, make me scream)

Do you believe that this could turn out alright?
Do you believe that this could turn out alright?
