    Sold Out


I acknowledge the tools you gave me and reclaim their purpose for my own destiny.


I’m D Major without you
yeah finally, though it took some doing
I’m doing well / I know things
people come to me
but it always brings the burden of your memory
I can’t shake your stupid schoolhouse just yet

I admit I was brand new
Everything I needed to know I learned from you
and I wanna rewrite that shit
time to rewrite the whole thing

I’ve made choices without you
And that’s about what I’m capable of
Tethered to you even in opposition.
Setting fires just to make a decision
I can’t get your lines out of my head

I admit it I was brand new
You taught me everything I didn’t have a clue
But it’s time to rewrite that shit
Time to time to rewrite

You sit there waiting for me to choke
But the truth is, I’m watching you go up in smoke

Nothings working without you
I know this makes me look a fool
Like I don’t know how to fix my own sink
Flip a fuse, fix a flat any fucking thing

I need a friend to walk me through
It could be anyone, anyone but you
but i haven’t found them yet…

Time to rewrite
