lyrics

v1.
reduced all the gratitude to platitudes
because I don't make the right changes to my attitude
can't course correct so i fall losing altitude
known it's my fault but I'm ignorant and mad at you

but I've learned to side eye my naive urges
turned blind moves into unlikely surges
of self critical hits that only allow necessities
until I break even all I can do is ask the best of me

no other option but to hold it down daily
because most everyone has already failed me
and those that stay down worry for my safety
tell me to slow down but they know they can't make me

irregular in a world of averages and means
but all that means is I let go of my dreams
or at least double check selfish aspirations
in favor of putting off baser elations

ch.
i got it good, but i need it better
dysfunctional connections must be severed
i got it good, but i need it better
i only got a moment no forever

no forever (yeah) no forever (yeah)
i only got a moment no forever
no forever (yeah) no forever (yeah)
i only got a moment no forever

v2.
only value to society is pursuit of capital
effort unmonetized means that you act a fool
so if I don't maximize the income from action
any move that lacks oughtta not be enacted

nothing feels like leisure when it's on borrowed time
can't relax when tomorrow's in the back of your mind
but I'll handle it all and stop bothering those
who it'd be wrong to expect to compose

even if it means i'm no show with no shows
watching no new shows in the same old clothes
with same trite flows and blog raps endlessly
often treading the same path senselessly

make the note mentally to shift gears & steer
because automation isn't yet here to appear
last generation to roll unassisted
pushing for change in a world that resists it
