Today is the day I want to

Blast loud music in my ears

Live a life that has no fears

And pretend that are no years

Ticking past my ears

Out the window.

Because it’s

A long long path to follow when

I want to skip and scream down then

All the way until I reach the future

 

But I can’t go there

Oh, not yet

But you dare me too

Then I’ll bet

It takes me only 2 long years to make my way home.

 

Starting part is marked here

The day I learned true fear

And stared a gun down its barrel.

It was positioned between two eyes

In place of a mouth, full of lies

And I knew it familiar simply ‘cause

Guns like these always run in families.

 

And looking back, I think to myself,

How’d I get buried in this filth,

Remembering the days, I was just too precious

Asking about words that begin with ‘n’

Knowing Budweiser before the alphabet

And knowing all the courthouse officials all by name.

But at the same time, I know,

It wasn’t a performance for show,

But something with one person to blame.

 

But today,

Today’s the day I want to scream my tale,

Not be worried about if I fail,

No worries about Harvard, Princeton or Yale,

But take the moment to just exhale,

Take a step off this old trail,

And from my life, remove its sad curtail.

 

Because it’s

A long long path to follow when

I want to skip and scream down then

All the way until I reach the future

 

But I can’t go there

Oh, not yet

But you dare me too

Then I’ll bet

It takes me only 4 long years to make my way home.
