lyrics

I’ve said so much
I’ve sold my soul
Validation holds
Me tight and won’t let go
Trap my eyes and type
A puppets manifesto
My blood sold me more
Of what I could have been
Waste away alongside expectations
The screen just glares
And says I told you so
Never learned to climb
Just plugged into a hole

Chorus:
I’ve said too much
But I can’t let go
Cable crosses
Wired to my throat
I’ve said too much
I can’t let go
They won’t let me go

I used to rub dirt on skin
Sweat to feel whole again
Played and laughed along like you do
But we trampled all the green
With no concept of mediocrity
Snowflakes lead to avalanched society
Was told “Son, you can be anything you like”
So I built upon the sin
Of unholy idealization
Stacked my hopes up high
Till I couldn’t peak
And cowered at my lost motivation underneath

Chorus:
I’ve said too much
But I can’t let go
Cable crosses
Wired to my throat
I’ve said too much
I can’t let go
They won’t let me go

Bridge:
There’s nothing crystal at the top
There’s nothing crystal at the top
No use for tools our parents dropped
Never learned to start, why would we learn to stop?

Chorus:
I’ve said too much
But I can’t let go
Cable crosses
Wired to my throat
I’ve said too much
I can’t let go
They won’t let me go
