lyrics

(Content)
I've got a problem and I cannot solve it.
Why is life like mathematics, my xy is crossing.
I'm crossing over my chest and yet I keep it fallen.
I've fallen harder than I have in a while and yet I fight regardless.
Everything in life is fickle to be simply put.
Fickleness is wickedness when it slips underfoot.
Yeah, I wander and I wonder would
I still be the man that I am if I was understood.
Yeah, I've got this problem, I'll keep on talking
I guess this music is a forum where we column gossip
Over 31, different flavors like we at Baskin Robbins
We look to one another, window shopping
Everyone in life is fickle to be simply put.
Fickleness is wickedest when it's a livelihood
Yet we ponder and we wonder when we saunter woods
Thinking life could be so different if we understood.
I hope you understand this, I'm sycophantic
I try to manage control
A hopeful romantic who tried to bandage his soul
With heart on his sleeves
He fell to his knees
The weight of the world often causes fatigue
He's begging you please, please
Won't you hear the sound, hear it now
Hear the ground breathe as he's bowing out
The body believes, that the mind will relieve
The pressure from bad posture due to defeat.

(Jordan Bink & Content)
Oh,
We’re lost in this world of woe is me
Lost in the place so lonely
Lost in our mind
Lost in our mind
Woe, woe, woe

(Jordan Bink)
A lost soul inside these lonely woods.
I float the stream until I’m gone for good or hit the ocean.
I watch the trees float by with my back to this river.
It’s December, so it’s cold but not frozen.
Down I go.
I’ll take on water till it over flows and sinks me whole.
A rock that made it’s ripples in a spot that no one knows
The river flows, I call it home. I call it home.
I dream to venture from one ocean to another
See the coasts of other countries with my honorary brothers. Build a house and start a family, make a life that no one hands me
Become the man that understands me.
But I don’t think y’all understand me.
I don’t think y’all could and yeah I wonder, oh I wonder would.
I still be the man that I am if I wa s understood.
Yeah I wonder, oh I wonder could, I still be the man that I am if I was understood. If I was understood.

(Jordan Bink & Content)
Oh,
We’re lost in this world of woe is me
Lost in the place so lonely
(Lost in this place)
Lost in our mind
Lost in our mind
Woe Woe Woe

Oh,
We’re lost in this world of woe is me
(Lost in our minds)
Lost in the place so lonely
Lost in our mind
Lost in our mind
Woe Woe Woe
