Tell me you feel alive, and you're content with your life
Cause I'm all ears tonight, this table's cleared for another lie
Tell me you’re satisfied, to wake up, embrace routine
Those precious times you've missed, they won't be coming back

Our lives go in and out like the tide
To feel those waves crashing down upon my side
To feel that sun radiate across my chest
The only place where peace and mindset intersect

Take a step outside, take some time to evaluate
Gaze into the sky, you'll be surprised by what you see
When we slow things down, and take a breath for ourselves
With tough decisions made, you'll lose your faith in honesty

It's times like these, I hardly know myself

I won't regress, into something that I am not
And I'll refuse what's been presented before me
And I will face this coming storm by myself
Embrace these fears on the horizon by myself

To feel those waves...
