about

A song about comparing myself to others and the saturated, bloated industry of social media propagating the notion that numbers and followers matter more than the strength of one's character.

lyrics

Before you walk out of your front door, no one is safe from your defense. In attempts to justify yourself, you're constructing sides of arguments with a fight that you've designed in your own mind. The difference between what you've seen and what you've heard is that your worth's defined apart from what you've earned. The balance you think you'll find in your accomplishments, on your own time, will leave you aching like a legacy. The sun rises on the weak and the strong. Every river’s got its rain. Don't want your imitation, your monstrous mitigation. If you're not yourself, then who do you have left? Poster child with blinding lights, idolize the dust that's only now alive. Ribcage girls or suits and necklines with their perfect made up lines, papers and the cameras making sure they get your good side. Sedated your wild spirit for a weaker nervous side, but the wilderness in you reveals mine. Is it not your shameful fight that keeps you up at night and in the morning keeps you quiet? The sun rises on the weak and the strong. Every river’s got its rain. Don't want your imitation, your monstrous mitigation. If you're not yourself, then who do you have left? If you're not yourself, then who do you have left?
