about

"Hit Restart" hits home for a lot of us. It's about experiencing the rough end of love.. Like when you give someone your everything only to have it all fall apart right in front of you. It is truly a unique experience. One that can cause chaos and despair but also one that can breathe a new sense of purpose and self-reliance.

Remember, we all change every day through our friendships, break ups, soul mates, polar opposites, et cetera... and we are the people we are today because of them. So even when things get rough, open your eyes and see the light in the dark times.

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us..." - Charles Dickens, "A Tale of Two Cities."

lyrics

LYRICS:

[Sample] (Yup, I'm your girlfriend, okay?)

[Chorus 1 - Content]
You're pulling me apart
Just to find another,
Someone who won't go as far as I have gone
We hit restart
Just to fall in love with
Someone who won't go as far as we could run

[Verse 1 - Jordan Bink]
Yo, check this out,
I know the way you feel when you talk about walking out
I've been putting in the miles to show you how I feel
All the while you would mask what is real, tell me what is real?
I guess I really don't care cause you wouldn't work out for me, we had our time.
And you absorb most of it,
Pulling at my brain
If we're talking bout sane
Baby, you're not close to it
Baby, you're not close to shit.
Your tone is so day and night
You make the sun and the moon wanna catch a flight..
To the next stop over this..
I can't stand anything about you,
I guess I gotta cut you, I'll do everything without you
Leave all my boys alone they were never really bout you
With all my love baby, that's what's up!

[Chorus 2 - Content & Jordan Bink]
You're pulling me apart (apart)
Just to find another,
Someone who won't go as far as I have gone
We hit restart (restart)
Just to fall in love with
Someone who won't go as far as

We could run.. That's what's up (x4)

[Verse 2 - Content]
In a whirlwind of panic attacks
No time to relax when you split and then you come back
While you were on sabbatical
I was sifting through collateral looking at what you ransacked
We were finally getting a grip, fitting the mold
As things were settling in it seemed to hold
But your love was colder now and self absorbed
No alchemist could turn your heart to gold
No therapist could seem to fill the void
Cause you deployed into your petty paranoia
Pretty paranoid, yeah, Sigmund Freud.
See you destroy, (you destroy)
You make me sick, you're so Typhoid Mary
Put up with the bullshit, you fed it to me daily
Fed it to me baby, here comes the airplane
Here comes the airplay via the airwaves
That's what's up!

[Bridge / Instrumental Interlude]

[Chorus 3 - Content & Jordan Bink]
You're pulling me apart (apart)
Just to find another,
Someone who won't go as far as I have gone
We hit restart (restart)
Just to fall in love with
Someone who won't go as far as

We could run.. That's what's up (x4)

[Outro - Matthew Blake]
"Sometimes, I wish that things were different.
I wish that we met each other at a different time
But that's life and.. sometimes you just have to move on and cut your losses.. I loved her."
