lyrics

I’m always discovering things
You’ve known about myself for years
Every thing that I’ve been going through
Is gonna be worth the tears

I know, I know, I know
My inner conflict is never your fault
But I still feel like I’m a kid
Feelings taken with a grain of salt

Everybody says
Nobody’s figured it out
But should I feel like
I’ve barely even started
Spending years along the route

Thanks for your patience
Thank you for waiting up
One day I’ll be keeping the pace
Today I’ll just be
Keepin’ up

Protagonist syndrome
Rejection of roles
A fear of mediocrity
An enormous addiction to goals

You wanna make an impact
You wanna be in somebody’s head
When they don’t care ‘bout your taste or your skillset
Your self-worth is even more dead

The things I demand from others are correctly labeled flaws
Dependency, worship, imitation, applause
I can feel my friends
Shaking their heads
Because they all already know
You’re still seeking pity
You’re still growin’ up
And you've still got a long way to go

Everybody says
Nobody’s figured it out
But should I feel like
I’ve barely even started
Spending years along the route

Thanks for your patience
Thank you for waiting up
One day I’ll be keeping the pace
Today I’ll just be
Keepin’ up
