lyrics

(Verse 1)
Good times role by you gotta weigh them with the bad
And don't sit around wishing for the things you never have
Go and grab life by the throat so you can let these people know
That a legends in the making and it's time for you to blow, so

Sit down child, don't stress now
Don't be thinking that you deserve any best, how?
Could you deny these very talents you've been blessed with?
Don’t give up on a dream that you have always been
obsessed with

Why waste it for the sake of having a few doubts
When you could make it and be having yourself a new house
Repay your parents for the years that they invested in you
A nice car, a big home with an immaculate view

Now wouldn't that just make a lovely story?
Instead of what you have at the present moment it bores me
Live your life and share this blessing with the planet
Every days a new beginning so there is no need to panic

(Chorus)

This world is always gonna try and break you down
But you have got that vision paint it through your sound
I'll do my very best to help you try and make it
Everybody has a voice and you just gotta wake it

(Verse 2)
Of course I'm talking to myself but I still aim this at you
I'm just hoping to inspire by the time this is through
Cus everybody has a dream that is trapped behind a scheme,
And you need to cut it free so you can let that vision breath

Now listen my aim is never to preach,
I’ve just been put on this very earth just to teach
See, I'm on a Mission to cause an intermission
So you can take a break and then follow your intuition

It's a lot harder when you have negative thoughts
So just wipe the slate clean and get exposure from the force
you'll be giving and still willing to proceed with
Yeah the force that you'll be killing the whole scene with

No bad vibes everything is all good,
No matter what happens I'll still be misunderstood,
But I'm okay with it that just means I'm different
I just want you to appreciate my vision

(Shihan’s Verse)

Look, don't try to confuse our purpose with your expectations
We're not here to make you happy
I'm here for the ceiling fans
who dream of propelling jet planes through
crowds of clouds like a schoolyard bully
Or the dedicated monsters with no scare in them
Or the moth with butterfly envy aspirations
Sometimes you just want to be appreciated for the
colour you add to the picture
Disregard the words of the uninspiring
Cause finding your voice can be difficult in a world
preoccupied with trying to fit in
Abby and I exist to be different
We smile for a living
Never waiting for the opportunity to present itself
But having the vision to create the opportunity to take advantage of
Been broken down
Time to rebuild with a better foundation
Sleep giants for too long
So, climb to the nearest rooftop and scream at the top of your lungs
Wake Up
