The calm won again, against the pressure
Leaking out the side of your head
Every entrance that perceives
Is being fed a different piece
Realign it or redesign it
All you do is try to fight it

Our clipped wings has ends to measure
Seeing just how far we all may go
Branching out to lights
Escaping vulnerable nights
Your evidence to press for comfort

Is made in the mess of the mind
Tangled in moments breathing lies
Is that where I came from?
It's us that make them
There's always got to be the one in the crowd
Who fucks it up for everyone
Everyone else

You choose to be the bearer of the ruckus
Justified your clawing ways to round up all the mutton
But little do you know, truth grows under the nose
You're losing your scent now where shall you go?
Breathe in, choke again
Delve in the prison you dreamt yourself

The smile of a winner who always forgets where they've been
Those eyes, desensitised, all your values have cashed in

We're wasting time, they've made up their mind
In a cage of their own design
If you're feeling wise, open your eyes
Present what you're really worth
You fucking sell out

Present what you're really worth
