lyrics

Cos we try so hard and get nowhere fast,
You wanna see me struggle?
I can't wait to burst your bubble
I ain't got nothing to lose.

Off the mark and my mind is ready,
Using my noodle, check my spaghetti,
Now I'll go as far as the senses let me,
If they wanna stop it, tell 'em come and get me.

I run around trying to make it through the struggle,
Gaze at the stars, soul searching a puddle,
I'm sick of trying hard getting nothing for my trouble,
I'm gonna tear down down the world have a party on the rubble.

I'm nursing scars at the bar drinking doubles,
You are who you are so why you trying to be humble?
I'm in primal state and no mistake,
I'm caged, I'm an animal, I'm kicking down the gate.

But I can't wait to do,
What everybody says that was made for you,
So I keep going til I'm ready for the struggles, here evident,
I'm living off peanuts with the presence of an elephant.

Cos we try so hard and get nowhere fast,
You wanna see me struggle?
I can't wait to burst your bubble
I ain't got nothing to lose.

They say the rich don't speak when your dreams are in front of ya,
I'm walking in a straight line trying to get insomnia,
When the ground feels like it's gone from under ya,
Falling down a hole, I'm tumbling now I'm wondering why,
I succumbed to the rabbit,
If it's time they want you can tell them they can have it,
Any opportunity I see, I grab it,
Lose myself in the moment, alluding to habit

No more excuses, I can't have it,
Now I can light a fire but I don't have a matchstick,
I'll rub twigs together if measures get drastic,
So if they want fire, I'll throw it they can catch it.
I'll make sure they can't match it,
I'll go til my lungs give out,
I wanna be the first drop of rain in a drought,
Maintain my frame and restraining from doubt.

Cos we try so hard and get nowhere fast,
You wanna see me struggle?
I can't wait to burst your bubble
I ain't got nothing to lose.
