Lost July

lyrics

I speak in tongues cause I don’t owe you one
Taught to tear the pages slowly just to keep it troublesome
Self aware, oh by the by, see no love lives your eyes
Only a host who tries to hide behind dollar signs

So sincerely, I write this on the tapestry
Tap in that vein and watch it spew in pageantry
Live and ascend, no starving for my brothers
See your savior in those seconds of dirt cover

Yo, I got no love for these heathens
And I’m breaking bread with the locals just like it’s breathing
Oh, you want some meaning? Boy, you want some truth?
Well you won’t find it in that vice, you won’t find it in that book

Need a purge, so in love
With that sin, oh just cause
Round and round and round we go
No time to tip toe

Choose right and you might die
Choose wrong and you might die
What's the point of this shit
If I don’t even feel alive?

I remember late nights in the valley
Rarely a rookie in zones from Tamp to Tally
Few foes tallied and I never gave you up a bit
Even with the hand that I held you with

And these summer's sewn in sweat
Pressed with the tears I pushed on my chest
Some unjust, it’s not all luck
Still won’t budge an inch, this ship will go unsunk

As the tide moves on and on and on...

The air is too thin
Now where do I end and the next phase begin?
This is life here
Live and let die here

Talk is cheap, gap with no leap
Lead to the point where the winds meet the East
This is life here
Live and let die here

Came for the valuables stashed in the hour glass
First and foremost when it’s half past the middle dash
My pack is thirsty, shovels can’t unearth me
Reign reaches out the grave with zero mercy

As we're here to pave our own way
Through the trials may the tried and true never sway
Hit it on the dot, point blank, going day to day
Need we say, more and more, from the depths to the shore

As the tide moves on and on and on
Come around now
It’s all proving ground now

The air is too thin
Now where do I end and the next phase begin?
This is life here
Live and let die here

Talk is cheap, gap with no leap
Lead to the point where the winds meet the East
This is life here
Live and let die here

It's just an ends to a mean
You follow brick roads, it is we who lead
Do dirt to complete these deeds
I know everything I ever said was everything I really dream and they’ll...

And they’ll watch me ascend (Watch me)
And they’ll watch me ascend again and again
And they’ll watch me ascend (Watch me)
Let the mother fuckers watch me ascend

The air is too thin
Now where do I end and the next phase begin?
This is life here
Live and let die here

Talk is cheap, gap with no leap
Lead to the point where the winds meet the East
This is life here
Live and let die here
