lyrics

and as my world gets older, its placing more boulders on my shoulder now
and judging by the sound, here comes the avalanche knocking me down
throughout all the malicious phases and gazes the days they roll on
kick it like a song, let the verse flow and sing it when the chorus comes on
but sometimes it never does, so write your own ending ya must and yes
i think i have the lust to make a great thing out of the dust and

I feel it piling up it's enough, but somehow I will poke through

and that's the same yearning, that yearns for me to keep learning
about the things I love, about the things that I used to think of so
this ones for the stragglers the lollygaggers learning shit while wasting their time, you don't have to be hunched over a desk all day to expand your mind

Chorus

and as my world gets older, its placing more boulders on my shoulder now
and judging by the sound, here comes the avalanche knocking me down but, if you look to your left, on a good day you may catch me at my best just frolicking, acknowledging my skills that still need polishing, tryna push it sideways, but people keep demolishing it down, I found that as a child, everything was just a bit more mild we had the fight to see and the rhythm to breath.
