Track Name: Dying to Make It
hey i really liked your set
you guys sounded really good
the echoes from last night resound eternal
as i lay in my room and wonder

am i just being impatient
or are the closest words just petty sympathy?
the sound of my idols talking to the world
grow directly proportional to my jealousy

call me a sellout but i'm dying to make it

and i deal with perpetual anxiety
and my last cigarette is doine
and this bed starts to feel like cement
as i think about how and when the world will get to hear my songs

yes i drop beats on soundcloud on the side
and i fool and experiment with sounds
because i'm trying to find that something that i'll love
and that will also turn some heads around

call me a fake piece of shit but i'm dying to make it

call me a sellout call me a fool
call me simplistic call me mistaken
call me the target of your spit filled mouth
or call me the truth that you don't really talk about

because I can see you from here mixing your crystal castles remix
or dropping your fat rhymes on the backseat freestyle beat
and i get it i respect it
because i know that you and i

we're just dying to make it
we're just trying to figure
we're looking for that golden chance
to brand a couple of ears
