everything orange,
everything orange
if you could just turn it back now
you'd keep everything orange

if I could I change it
would I even change it
should I even change it

yesterday, I just turned 21...

just went out with my family / no party, no drinking
outlier always / and that's got me thinking

why am I feeling so reticent...

though I'm stuck in retail / I finally have some friends now
I'm finally moving forward / or it is pretend now?

a letter came to me that day...

says "I'm from your future / sorry bout your b-day
I know it was giftless / and boring but that's okay"

so I couldn't believe what it said...

"knock off all the bitterness / stop sweating those small things
keep your nose on that grindstone / and recognize your calling"

attention locked so lock I read along...

"keep making that music / but just knock out your degree
song's an ever long hobby / but code will make you that money"

guess that's something I always knew...

but what came next surprised me / struck me as quite unlikely
cut me down to my psyche / shocked is putting it lightly

"some pain follows down every path..."

"one thing to get used to / something's are a lose/lose
and if you knew what I knew / you wouldn't know what to do too"

closing line always stuck with me...

"you can live despite pain / and flourish under great strain
when selfless you bring great change / absent that you're bloodstained"
