Track Name: Yours Is Mine
Progress is as progress was
distance is an illusion
success appears so close to hear
but it seems to always elude me

overwhelmed with anxiety
as it seems i'm so uncertain
no sense of security
in believing in these hazardous dreams

I watch from the dark and writhe
don't you want to know?
I think that your love is mine
further down the road

Dig a hole to fall into
hoping to be admired
if we see the end of ourselves
will we feel grief and regret or perfect laughter

I watch from the dark and writhe
don't you want to know?
I think that your love is mine
further down the road
read your horoscope

We set our goals
for something we don't even know
detach from family to see ourselves
down in the hole

overcome with selfishness
like the sun that is unmoved
unconcerned with the world surrounding
forever nothing we feel we're something.

We set our goals
for something we don't even know
detached from family, disjointed from the family tree
is this everything we've planned it out to be?
to see ourselves celebrated starving artists
nothing is shared.
