Ayo, I'm living my life on my own dime, no cosign
Whack attack at that rap, packing punch rhymes after punch line
Oh, It's crunch time, why can't I feel it in my chest
Been playing fisticuffs with the upper guts yet I never would've guessed
I'm stress intolerant, autonomous, and I never live to live
Confusing commonsense with a consciousness that I never seem to get and I've been losing it all, I've loosened the rock (I seemed to be dwelling in)
I will not fall and nor will I fail (cause I won't be giving in)
This common place is full of clichés
Cause what I paraphrase and contemplate is more than mundane
I feel like every thought is a vein
Bleeding out in it's nonsense
Taken out of it's context
Living a life for the Content in vain.

We won't take care of ourselves
Ain't it obvious that we ain't giving a damn
Yeah it's obvious to see
That we're living life on the run
We won't take care of ourselves
Ain't it obvious that we ain't giving a hell
Yeah it's obvious to me
That we're living life on the run

(Jordan Bink)
Say my name again,
Take a deep breath steady aim again
Bang bangarang
Known to never not ever stay the same
And I’ll never grow up, I’m a lost boy
Lost dreams, to awake so I dream of sleep,
Swimming in my thoughts full of lost noise
I’m the lost choice for the kid to send these pirates sailing singing (Bonvoyage!)
By George, I think he’s got it, and I know you heard us kill that hook.
Wishing on the second star to the left to the left everything you want in a box of regrets
On top of a check you can cash for respect.
For your social status, I’m a social cactus,
Keep away from this prick or he’ll put you on your backless axis.
I remember when I ain’t even had a dream
Before all of these lights and all these flashy things
Between these shots and these icy drinks I’m running, running out of breath
Floating past the moon I’m never coming back

(Jordan Bink & Content)
We're gonna do what we wanna do
What you gonna do (hey, hey, hey)
We're gonna do what we wanna do
What you trying to prove living life on the run
