I know by now I have to get myself sorted out and if the years have taught me anything I can’t do it on my own I can’t leave the house without being scared I might get scared you are always concerned I am dragging you down You are the spring of a stream that will lead me out of these woods They scare me to death I will follow the river to the shore of the ocean I will get better I’ll drink your water Fall asleep to your sounds You’re my direction You give me hope that I will get there My feet will touch sand I will make my way out I will follow the river to the shore of the ocean I will get better
We are chasing tail lights again Wheels are cutting through street We are running late All I want to do is sleep We’re stuck in a van We’re all tired as fuck All we want to do is go home Because we tend to forget What it was we’re chasing We tend to forget What we’re doing this for These cities all look the same When you pass them at our speed I can’t recall a single name These songs all sound the same They bore the shit out of me All I want to do is sleep We run until we remember where we’re going All we gotta do is hold on
EAST - EAST 04:02
Like most men I grew up always taking a bit more space than the girls around me I was constantly made to believe that it somehow belonged to me It's kinda crazy that it took me so long to call bullshit This society and even this scene are still dominated by white men like me It's a flaw in the system I want to break the pattern of my white male privilege But I am part of the problem I'm always part of the problem I guess I am the problem But I'm trying to be aware and make room Make it safe for everyone Let's make this a safe space for all of us and make some room
You pushed me when I stumbled Just to watch me fall When I tried to get back up You kicked me back down So I made friends with the dirt Got comfy on the ground Just when I was settled You pulled me up You're a flaw in my design You won't let me catch my breath Though I know you're only in my mind I can't get you out of there There's no escaping you
