Track Name: Short Changed
-Short Changed-

I didn't work my ass off to do the same things for the rest of my life, I'm tired, my all for nothing, thats just me, at least I tried. I'm running as fast as I can the grounds keep caving in . If I keep falling on my ass Then my moments sure to pass. The older that I get the farther i get from the people I held closest, If im giving my life for passion I'm going to make sure we don't fall short.I'm running as fast as I can the grounds keep caving in . If I keep falling on my ass Then my moments sure to pass.I've finally found some solid ground,I'm running, nothing can stop me now,
I know this is what I want. I've found people to help me move on .

Everyday its the same thing, "I can't wait to leave this place." Different thoughts stuck in your head, but you're all the same. Getting out of town won't change the decisions that you've made. Every regret is a law that defines you, every mistake is a lesson that molds you. What are you going to have to hold onto, on your death bed? I guess I'm the odd one now for never growing up or standing out but I've finally made amends. It's time to be a man. I'm no saint, I can say I changed. Are you going to die with something or just fade away? If I go down I'm going with a cause, I hope you do the same. The world as a notebook, your life as a pen. If you don't make a mark, they won't know you exist.
Make a mark.

I'm giving up on this front line, I'm tired of living my life like this. I'm finally gonna cross the line that you never thought would exist. I am growing up everyday, but you will never see the person I've became, cus you are stuck in your old ways and it was worth the wait to fucking walk away.
I'm so much more than this check will ever be, and I'm sorry I wasn't old enough to help you leave. I did the best that I could with the cards that I was dealt, I always had this pain up on my shoulders. It's nice to know I'm growing older.Dear dad I don't know where you are at, but I know where you should have been in the past. I know that it's over but I can't scratch away all the shit that you caused in the past two decades.
I am so much more than this fucking check, and the fact you share my name, it makes me sick.
Where the fuck were you at? How are you my father? How can i call you that?
I did the best that I could with the cards that I was dealt, I always had this pain up on my shoulders, it's nice to know I'm growing older. Dear dad, I don't know where you were at but I know where you should have been in the past and I know that it's over but I can't scratch away all the scars that you caused in the past two decades.
I know that it's over, I know that it's over but I can't get over the fact you can't get over yourself.
I never had the best draw,and i was always out of luck.I was always out of touch. We were both playing that card well. Dear dad I don't know where you were at but I know where you should have been in the past I know that it's over but I can't scratch away all the shit that you caused in the past two decades.

Stand clear
It's been a long night, and I can't wait to sleep with no conscience on my mind. Don't take their word on anything. I promise you that it will be okay. I know it hurts, but don't ever let them tell you what you're worth. I know its not your fault, but i guess these pills can't solve it all.Be the change that you want to see in the world. Be the change that you want to see In the world never let another person try to slow you down. When you look at yourself try to look at your faults. These will be the thing that take you to the top.
Let's go.I'm done wasting my night,trying to impress these people with their precious time.When was the last time you looked at yourself, and questioned your way of life,who you really are? Come on, living your life for others wasn't meant to go this far. Don't listen to them, he's just pulling an act he's just reading a script he's sure to die. Without a cause. Living his life without knowing who he was. We are all just broken trumpets. Doing our best until our notes die out. Our hearts are augmented, our dreams diminished.We're doing our best to prove that we're still living it.

All of these life lessons I'm learning so fast. There's no time for me to look into my past to to learn about myself. Now nostalgia take me back. To a better time and place. I know i shouldn't go and that I need to stay but I was so much happier then, we didn't have money but we still had friends and as shitty as they were as shitty as time was in my heart I still miss it. I remember it all so well. The faces have changed but i swear not to tell and though we all miss the start we have to stay where we are to try to live up to the fact that nothing ever lasts. Come home to an empty house. See the place that I grew up in is owned by someone else. All my wealth is trapped in the past. How can I reclaim something that I can't grasp. Take me back I miss it all. This disappearing act is getting old. So take me back I wanna go home. This disappearing act is getting so old. I remember it all so well the faces have changed but I swear not to tell and though we all miss the start we have to stay where we are to try to live up to the fact that nothing ever lasts. I want my diamond back.
