The Ground & The Middle

(Before the Bomb Drops)

Waiting on a bench, hoping for returns
This feels like prom man, will I ever learn?
I didn't go though, I made the girl feel so low
That she didn't even wanna go solo
Disco ball shines as I write these lines of paint
Open your eyes and find everything is not the same
My lies put up my velcro walls of shame
Open the blinds and find everything I ain't
There's a fat man across the hall, giving me the call
He says, 10 minutes until you lose it all okay
His grey hair whispers a nightmare of pain
It's not fair to disappear when everybody came
So I smile, like giving sugar to a diabetic
So wide that made me even regret
I got a mirror problem but how could I let it
Get in the way of my dreams never should I let it

I've been asleep all my life
All I need is one more night
One more chance again
One more dance my friend
'Cuz I don't know where I'm going
I don't know where I'm going
School did teach me, class didn't reach me
I'm stuck between, the ground & the middle
The ground & the middle
The ground & the middle
The ground & the middle
The ground & the middle

I used to think getting a girl was like running the world
You put up your best and give her diamonds and pearls
But those diamonds weren't shining the same way I thought
That's why I had to return everything I bought
At one point in my room wishing everything would stop
You're here for a reason but for some reason you forgot
So you're cold looking for a fan
Looking for every dark hole but your the man
Take home someone who understands
Watch them follow and ruin your plans
Damn, I thought I wasn't sour but I am
I don't write this so I can fall in love again
I write this so I can be around my friends

I've been asleep all my life
All I need is one more night
One more chance again
One more dance my friend
'Cuz I don't know where I'm going
I don't know where I'm going
School did teach me, class didn't reach me
I'm stuck between, the ground & the middle

I'm slightly crazy but if you hate yourself you do it
Maybe I've been waiting on my whole life to pursue it
I'm scared I'm never gonna reach my complete
And I'll be stuck in a store selling some meat
To some guy not sure why but he's distant
If this isn't hell then it probably prison
It's probably a vision of talent that's probably missing
So, if I can get up my wings and go
I can find the earth and how the wind blows
I can open up the stars and let them all know
That I'm here for a reason
Maybe I'll fall and disappear into the nightsky
I don't believe in happy anymore
I believe in motivation or not
'Cuz if your hearts just beating to stop
You found your depths in the shallowest plot
You found your reason to not
I found my reason to knock down the door
Of the highest of tops, I see the world and think about you
And I hope it all comes true

I've been asleep all my life
All I need is one more night
One more chance again
One more dance my friend
'Cuz I don't know where I'm going
I don't know where I'm going
School did teach me, class didn't reach me
I'm stuck between, the ground & the middle
the ground & the middle
the ground & the middle
the ground & the middle
