LYRICS
Walking through
walking through
the rows
Walking through
when no one else knows

they don’t know what we been through
now I'm on a podcast with in-q
watch us grow at last into what we meant to,
be

watch us grow like a seed
ditch the illusions that they feed us,
living in a world where we grew up as rejects, tried to tell ‘em our truth but they say it’s too esoteric,

global pandemic caused another epidemic
of mental health, problems, that came in our minds just to rob em, and haunt em, and put ‘em at rock bottom

nervous system tweaking out
had to go below the surface just to figure it out
had to take what I thought,
what I felt, but what I’m not
but what I meant
and put it all back into art

all the pain and frustrations, in my heart~
I thought I lost myself due to complications in my mark
had to spend a couple months, by myself in the dark

I started writing poems
started speaking with the poets
all of a sudden I see how my whole mind opens
creativity, wit the flow
maturity is when you know
when to let it go

stand in the darkness,
light it up by being honest
like In-Q and I are artists
(yeah)
we create because it's cathartic
(yeah)
even when life gets the hardest
(yeah)
you gotta look at yourself and go even harder
(yeah)
