Blue Rose (Lyrics)

everywhere i go
all the things i see
time is standing still
waiting just for me
to make a decision
and do something bigger
than myself for once

high paying jobs
but not the right place
wise career moves
to no happier space
large mansions
and red porches are fading fast
why be rich with superficial masks

everyday im getting further from where i wanna be
stuck in the daily work routine like worker bee
sick of the hive and I need to get out
need a change not sure what lifes about
anymore

looking for my blue rose
looking for my blue rose
blue rose

wooden framed photographs
happier memories
of a time when there was no status anxiety
no pressure to be something more
to make big career moves and forget our child hood

flashing tv screens with have and have nots
billboard like clots in my brain do they rot
and rape the ideas that ive set out before me
and show me more of what i simply dont need

i want a smoother ride though i only learn from the lumps
when i get what i want i only really want something else
sick of the hive and I need to get out
need a change not sure what lifes about
anymore

looking for my blue rose
looking for my blue rose
blue rose

All

Flip the switch
Turn off the brain
Hide the differences
For which to arrange

To want more
To want it all
Is only human

Draw a line
In the sand
Dance on one side
Be a man

Make a choice
And stick to it
Be happy with permanence

Growing Up

She can dance in the sunshine
She can sing in the  rain
But oh how growing up has taken that all away
As she sits in her cubicle Working away
Wondering if more happiness is due with her pay

To ignore her dreams achievable or not
To appease the parental wisdoms even if it is not what she wants
Floundering and beginning to sink
Just living now taking her to the sanity brink

What is happiness? She cries? What is life?
How do I change from this path set for me, im not ready to be a wife..
All the things I want are elsewhere, but indeed, not in my Grasp
all happiness i put in materials, never get for what i ask

Explosions ensue, the sunshine escapes
A shell of the woman that I once knew is raped
There’s no return, standing on the cliff face
but she can’t even end it, Such is her fate
