This is the first song I wrote for myself. It’s about not losing yourself in the achievements of others around you, and keeping focused on actually doing all the things you tell yourself you’ve been doing for years, when really you’ve actually done utterly sweet fuck all.

The plans I’ve yet to make,
Are filling up my days,
The holes I’ve called my masterpieces,
I’m hiring out to another’s shot at fame.

And I’ll be well out of the way,
When the actions that I say,
Are bound to change some day,
It’s all out of my control, it’s all the same.

All I do is complain,
Lifting weight behind a name,
That doesn’t count for anything,
A failed attempt at fitting within the frame.

And in my mind I’m never bored,
I’ve got my future neatly stored,
Ready for the day I spring,
Majestically from my bed, and then begin.

And I’ve no proof right to this day,
That I’m anything what I say,
I’ll be sleeping through the day I bring,
Something to this table that you’ve laid.
