lyrics

Sitting watching clouds drift by
Always make me wonder why
Life makes no sense most of the time
Just gotta hang on try enjoy the ride

I find it hard to focus most of the time
But other times I can't get other tings off my mind
Fixation problems within reside
Causing mental suicide

And I wait....
For the world to stop turning
Though I know its not gonna happen anytime soon
Out of nowhere a figure comes to me and says

Let it go

Stuck on repeat inside my head, this ones not gonna let me get to bed
Smoke it out the restless dead, eliminating the impending dread
Figure 8 catastrophe, endless look of what has been
Sticking lightly to the ground, no hope just blocking out the sound

And I wait...
For the world to stop turning
Though I know its not gonna happen anytime soon
Out of nowhere a figure comes to me and says

Back again, my mind can't breathe yeah
I'm slowly going under, pulled on down by muddy water
Try to stop, relax, focus on my dreams
That I never can remember so I sit in brooding silence

While I wait
For the world to stop turning
Though I know its not gonna happen anytime soon
Out of nowhere a figure comes to me and says

All hanging out head back to my place
Had a few drinks sang and jumped around
Blotter paper stationed got my head in a trip
Satisfied, piece of mind, just want to let this slip
Hanging with my good friends, having a jam
Memories live forever, satisfaction comes so briefly

So we figured it out what's more to say
We gotta kick back, gotta live for today
So won't you join me, raise your voices, sing to dreams broken and to life!
When the world stops turning, I know I'm gonna be the first to go
Unless I can find a way to grow and let it go.
