lyrics

Southside we held down that fire
If I said we didn't I'd be lying
Oh at the same time I was crying
Paint on my canvas again

There was a sound like chimes
Coming from the bedroom in the morning
Tangled up in twin beds like a warning
Not to get too close to anything

Aching for safekeeping

Summer never ends when you're working freelance
And living in the city
Answering to nobody
But the face on the screen

All that money that you spent last night
And the reason that your wallet's empty
Looking for some innocent company
Out on Mission and 16th

Aching for safekeeping

Early riser needing a pick me up
Beating fatigue in some fisticuffs
Traded everything I know for a bit of luck riding the wave that was in my gut
No more back in the day now I’m packed in this train Thinking bout how to advance in this game so rapidly paced
Move too slow fall flat on your face

It's like we move with this impetus since removed from the womb when we're innocent
Pray to this muse feeling dazed and confused stay your lane and obey all the rules
Wide eyes to the world but some say that it's cruel and your oyster I guess it just depends on the school of thought
I'm caught in the middle
Stumped by this riddle big picture I'm stuck with some scribbles

Life is something so brittle ego was big but it shrunk just a little
Kicking up the dust I would settle in call it resurgence or genesis, some a kind of betterment
I digress Embarcadero jet on this divine quest
On this flight west it's the gold rush feeling so rushed trying to strike next

Fast paced living, feel like some soul is the last thang missing
Move along you can't stay wishing this train is leaving we're passing Mission
Now everyday just feels like same seasons work from morn 'til the late evening
Play the game seeking some safekeeping

Aching

Southside we held down that fire
If I said we didn't I'd be lying
Oh at the same time I was crying
Paint on my canvas again

There was a sound like chimes
Coming from my bedroom in the morning
Tangled up in twin beds like a warning
Not to get too close to anything

Aching for safekeeping
