    I'm seein' shades of gray

    Enough prodding to make me hurt, which drives me to my sole desire
    Where I got you hanging on my every word, to burn you while I'm breathin' fire
    See, 'cause I got a plan, I look different on this side I'm somethin' like a hologram
    Damn, that don't mean I've changed, it just explains
    How some things in my life have suddenly rearranged
    While I'm starin' at my reflection it's lookin' somthin' like misdirection
    Between my life, my love, and passion it's a lonely intersection
    And my selection results in constant mental interjection
    Giving birth to such aggression requires me to cease these sections
    But you see, they find a way to breath
    And for me, I find no place to leave to
    ‘Cause I finally found somewhere to land
    But now I can't seem to find where I am

    [Hook]
    I'm lost in this crowd
    I'm seein' shades of gray
    Lookin' for the light
    But I only found today
    I'm trapped in those eyes
    And I can't look away
    Afraid of the changes
    But nothing stays the same

    [Verse 2]
    Some say go to the light, others say you must leave it
    But in darkness there's clarity even if you don't care to see it
    Images taken and replayed such as this thievery
    And there seems to be no shortage of the people in my corner who believe in me
    But it wasn't always like this no, when I was fighting
    And I could say a million words at once but my pen was dry when it what time for writin'
    Sometimes I just don't get where the ink well goes
    And then sometimes my pen hits paper and the rest just flows
    Now I tried to exercise my demons but they've gotten out of shape
    And I used to be so superhuman but it seems I lost my cape
    How could I be that I'm livin' so great externally when life's burnin' me and internally
    It feels like I'm lying awake on the table in surgery
    And I'll put on a clinic, I can see that you're a cynic
    Thinkin' I photographed this picture perfect life and you weren't in it
    So I try to live my lessons and ease off these second guessin's
    I don't need church bells to be ringin' to go give you these confessions

    [Hook]

    [Verse 3]
    And where that leaves me now
    I can't seem to choose
    I found some breadcrumbs and it seems that I was leaving clues
    But I'm confused as to what they mean
    I know I've seen the movie but its seems that I forgot the scene
    I'm cuttin' the brakes, whatever it takes
    The bigger the gamble the higher the stakes
    Yeah I battled to build this and I'll never back down
    You know where you can find me now

    [Hook x2]
