lyrics

Consistently stuck in the right place at the wrong time
This uphill battle has led to my decline
All I've learned is survival from week to week
Self consciousness has become my expertise

But it's this beat in my chest, that lets me know that I'm alive
It reminds me of the times I've been depressed and thought I wouldn't survive
I refuse to trade my passion and I refuse to be bled dry.
I’m going to find my way, I’m going to thrive

I atone for my past transgressions.
I'm learning the error of my old ways.
I'm letting go of all aggression.
They only weigh me down at the end of the day.

Everyone tries to knock me down
but I keep promising myself that I'll get back up
I do my best to surround myself with those who help me overcome.

But it's this beat in my chest, that lets me know that I'm alive
It reminds me of the times I've been depressed and thought I wouldn't survive
I refuse to trade my passion and I refuse to be bled dry
I'm going to find my way I'm going to thrive

But it's this beat in my chest that lets me know that I'm alive
It reminds me of the times I've been depressed and thought I wouldn't survive

But it's this beat in my chest, that lets me know that I'm alive
It reminds me of the times I've been depressed and thought I wouldn't survive
I refuse to trade my passion for a dead end 9 to 5
I'm doing everything I can. I want to thrive.
