lyrics

I am history, I am young.
The fumbling fingers of a six year old
Doing his best just to tie up my shoes.

Just one more lace then we can go.
But momma says she won’t wait no more.
Kicking and screaming she drags my ass out to the car.
As I’m crying “Time, I need more time.”

I am passion, I am waste.
Sloth and ignorance at current state.
A man raised in privilege,
a man who shouldn’t beg for more.
A man who should know better
than to waste the time hes got time for.

All this time, I need more of it.
Cause I’m scared my worlds gonna end
And dear god I haven’t’ lived

All this time, I don’t deserve it.
I swear I learned how to go on my last turn
Theres still some good I can do
With the life I got left on this world.

I am potential, I am scared
I am the answer and I am fear
Of all I that love
and all that I ever will be.

I can conquer, I can change.
Proclaim my independence from this place
Atop the bodies of worry and the doubt and the shame.
If I just had time...

All this time, I need more of it.
Cause I’m scared, I’m gonna get trapped
By the horror I paint in my head.
All this time, no I don’t deserve it.

But I’ll I’ll tie these laces twice as fast
There’s no way I’m gonna last,
and there’s no way I’m going back
without more time.

All this time...I need time.
Just a little more
More than I deserve
Just a little more time.
