Lyrics

I've been living my childhood ghosts
I’ve been living my childhood ghosts
I’ve been living what I feared the most
And I feared the most for way too long

you see I been making it on time
I turn the crank and those gears collide
they moan they groan while I’ve stood by
and I stood by for way too long

I said yes I said no
I said all I wanted was just to be let go
but I won their game and it was all for show
it's been all for show for way too long

we was born wild and we was born free
I’ve seen the west and I've seen the east
but I held my hand to feed the beast
to feed the beast for way too long

I thought I'd be in the minor leagues
I thought I’d give more than receive
thought I’d believe what I’d live and breath
and I’ve received for way too long

we've been told that's just the way it goes
that's just the way it's been for God only knows
they shut their eyes and they plug their nose
and I’ve done both for way too long

I’ve been living my childhood ghosts
I’ve been living these childhood ghosts
I’ve been living what I’ve feared the most
and I’ve feared the most for way too long
