lyrics

I like to sing when I'm bored.
It helps me to escape problems and reason.
So when I think about leaving,
I won't be bound by this place
or restricted to the skies of everyone else.

Ambition, I've seen it.
My feelings, don't need them.
Grow on, I need this.
Go on.

I hate to feel that I'm poor.
The contraband's too much to take.
Honors in treason.
So when I think about fleeing,
I can't be found in this place.
I'm exiled by the worlds of everyone's doubt.

Ambition, I've seen it.
My feelings, don't need them.
Grow on, I need this.
Go on.

When I feel I'm on the floor,
it gets way too hard to take.
And now I'm crawling at the door
my hands are reaching for.
My knees are burnt with the want for more.

Ambition, I've seen it.
My feelings, don't need them.
Grow on, I need this.
Go on.
