lyrics

I used to lie a lot
Mostly to try and not be different
Cried a lot cuz I could never find a spot to fit in
Wanted to die and thought of ways to stop my clock from tickin’
Like my life was lost or maybe just that I was not for livin’
All I found was contradiction
The plot thickened
All I felt was constant friction
Like what belonged was missin’
wishin’ I believed in anything with a strong conviction as believing that I wasn’t shit..
Still ain’t shit...
still as real as it gets watching the colors leave the palette when you’re feeling depressed
Watching lovers lose their balance when they see you’re a mess
and losing touch with all around you when you’re dealing with stress,
I guess it’d be perjury if I said something worked for me
My purpose is to further my self worth beyond uncertainty
Cursed with being smart to see just how absurd I act
And birthed into this earth without a perfect map..

It’s time for a solo mission / gotta find what I’ve been missing
It’s time for a solo mission / gotta find some peace of mind

It’s time for a solo mission / gotta find what I’ve been missing
It’s time for a solo mission / gotta find some peace of mind for myself

All this darkness haunting me / got me so that I can’t see
No stars above are guiding me / it’s a lonely sky

And maybe it’s time to take a deeper look at what’s inside of me /
Face the demons that are taunting me (yeah)

All this weight that I’ve been bearing / all the secrets I ain’t sharing (ooh)
Well they’ve got me suffocating

And there ain’t no God that’s saving me / but if I go there I’m afraid
That you won’t follow me / still it’s crystal clear to me

It’s time for a solo mission / gotta find what I’ve been missing
It’s time for a solo mission / I gotta find some peace of mind

Time for a solo mission / gotta find what I’ve been missing
It’s time for a solo mission / ain’t no one can save me now but myself

(If you find you find what you seek / all the joys you will keep
Past and future meet / there you’ll find yourself)
(x 2)

I wanna talk about the pain that we’re in / I wanna walk with the strength of my friends
I wanna stop and feel the rain on my skin / feel like I’m alive / stop chasing the end
(x 2)

It’s time for a solo mission / gotta find what I’ve been missing
It’s time for a solo mission / gotta find some peace of mind

Time for a solo mission / gotta find what I’ve been missing
It’s time for a solo mission / (gotta find some peace of mind)

Yeah life, you got my listening / my fate is my decision
It’s time for a solo mission

It’s time for a solo mission / this is my soul’s ambition
I’ve got to find redemption / I gotta find some peace of mind for myself

If you find what you seek / all the joys you will keep
Past and future meet / there you’ll find yourself
(x2)

As you were meant to be / living in perfect peace
Send the storms back to sea / Here you can truly be
As you were meant to be / living in perfect peace
Send the storms back to sea / Here you can truly be free
