Question Everything

In the style of

8stops7

Lyrics

ever since
i was a child
you always said that i
should understand
the rules

you take some
and give less
sit high
above the rest
don't you

as i ask
a simple question
cuts me off
with this reply
he's been practicin'
for decades
and now he thinks
i have the time

well he flows
in and out of riddles
lookin' me
straight in the eye

but it seems like
somethin's missin'
from these days
when he was
more my size

i'm ten years older
and i finally found
my pride
a-this old man
comes a-rollin' home
to die

old feelin's
make it hard to decide
just what it means
to me

everything exists
between black
and white
you can twist
and distort
the most blatant
of lies

or just
offer up solutions
practiced only in mind
i lost half my life
to wisdom

so forgive me
if i come off
sounding bitter
if my words
push you away

if i seem surprised
to see you
lyin' here
in front of me

just consider
what you're asking
and give me
a little time

'cause i'm still
havin' trouble
breathing
'cause up to now
i've
i've never seen you cry

i'm ten years older
and i finally found
my pride
but this old man
comes a-rollin' home
to die

old feelin's
make it hard to decide
just what it means
to me

no son of mine
should i be sleepin'
and no son of mine
as if ya
never understood

that i don't need
your help
don't have to save me
from myself
or take me out
to prove
that i should
live my life like you

as i ask
a simple question
cuts me off
with this reply
he's been practicin'
for decades
and i am listening
this time

he flows
in and out of riddles
stories change
without the wine
but at least
he seems much clearer
on how it feels
to be my size

ten years older
and i finally found
my pride
but this old man
comes a-rollin' home
to die

old feelin's
make it hard to decide
just what it means
to me
just what it means
to me

old feelin's
make it harder to see
just what he means
to me
just what he means
to me

just what he means
to me
just what he means
to me
