lyrics

Different world views
We have different world views
I feel that life is askew
You feel it too good to be true
And I know this is you
But I gotta be me too
Your life isn't mine I say it all the time
We argue a bit but never cross lines
Live your life and I'll live mine
We are not one person and even if I love you
Remember two in one isn't as good as one and two
Yo, I just wanna be my own person
A trek through life to find myself, worth it
That doesn't mean you can't be who you want to be
Just remember you're you and I'm always me
We can be different and equal, ideal circumstance
We can't be selfish and evil, lose without a chance
So take life by the hands and lead the dance
And kick the devil out whenever you have the chance

[No, no, no, no
(Kick the devil out now)
No, no, no, no
(Lucy got another trial, wow)
No, no, no, no
(Trapped in a spiral, how)
You just can't forget where your passion be
You just can't regret your philosophies
You can't total out developed winnings
That's for your dreams to see fruition]

And that's a fucking system
You have your system
Set out on a mission
There's hands to be shook and babies that need kissin
Dark times wander mental faculties
Light side corners and disperses rapidly
We come from different corners of life
That doesn't mean we should all just fight
Based on arbitrary feelings of different cultures
That's what makes us unique and will never falter
Gotta take the wise sayings that you've learned over time
Cliches from books that stay stuck in your mind
Calculate the differences of life in these times
And solve the equation one problem at a time
I've been told life isn't hard once you get used to it
But how can I get through it when my life is just bullshit
If I don't love myself how can I love this life
I need to travel far and wide so I don't turn into a hypocrite
Or turn cold as ice, grow old, full of piss and spite
Life is alright
Wouldn't call it dynamite
Still searching for that spark that'll then ignite
Alright
I'm not saying figure it out tonight
But I wanna figure it out right
And show those outright
I can do me and be happy on any given night
From now to the day I die
I wanna find myself and figure out my purpose in life

[No, no, no, no
(Kick the devil out now)
No, no, no, no
(Lucy got another trial, wow)
No, no, no, no
(Trapped in a spiral, how)
You just can't forget where your passion be
You just can't regret your philosophies
You can't total out developed winnings
That's for your dreams to see fruition]

I've been fixed on a different destination
I would sacrifice my life to save a nation
Life has different equations
Face em
There's tons of problems, and we have to face them
Calculus couldn't prepare you for that
Take your soul and put it on a map
This is where you are
Here is where you want to be
Follow the map and you'll become almost holy
Searching for the purest version of myself
Accidentally purposely hiding my soul in stealth
Never trying to compare success to wealth
But wealth is a goal when battling myself
Understand being broke was never the goal
But I really find it hard to put my trust in gold
If I trust in gold does that mean I sold my soul
But I'm not tryna put it all on hold
To figure out this toll
Devito about a boys hole
Confusion
Never did I think this was a fusion
But I got the band together like Gotenks and Vegeto
To resurrect a version of Venus Corp, neeto
How bout that Sensu Bean, tho
Power you up from zero
So you can be the true hero
And battle evil like my boy Zero
Or Heero
Are we talking Gundam or Zoids
Megaman or toys
Talkin about metaphors of the void
Void ain't to be toyed
With
Don't get too pissed
When karma catches up to you and you have to make the switch
In your attitude and thesis
Prof turned it to pieces
And you've handed in 3 since
And he still says they stink (like) shit

Know who you are
You can touch stars
And reach Mars
In time

I know it's hard
To be who you are
I'm on par
Just try

It hurts inside
To show off your pride
I know why
I've died

Too many times
I've tried, and I've tried
But I
Survived
