After practice I get on the bus
The weakness from the running burns my chest
I think it will be worth it in the end
Pushing how I'm built is probably best

Even in the smartest place on Earth
Misogynistic bullshit rears its head
I sit next to victims of the plague
I'm lucky diagnosed not to be dead

I know I've been slacking
I don't work or sleep, I give up this fight
Instead I choose to write
I think I'm right

Though I've had my fill of acting breaths
As much as I love games I love art more
I wish I was on stage and screaming yet
I'd fill the room with sound from walls to door

Not much for conversation I listen in
I figure 'cause I've got it figured out
I remember when I loved to speak
Now there's nothing left to talk about

When I was a child
When I never thought to hold back my words
I was so calm and free
As I am now, left unspeaking

I am full of scared and blind and anxious for the past
No I cannot keep in my mind the things that truly last
I don't know if I just make it up to still feel sad
It's just what I've seen in recent days that drives me mad

I think that somewhere in my mind I
Believe that with the music I'll find love
I won't through talking, nor through games or
Through the names that streets remind me of

Before I thought to trick you into love
Thinking I was cool I'd hold your hand
Now I hope that through the sound I've made it clear
Somehow you see a fragile loving man

Truly all I wish for
Is that you would stay and hold me when I am weak
Yes, keep me when I'm weak
