lyrics

took a second look
and nothing's looking the same now
took a little break
yeah, i had to go AWOL
lost my mind
time after time, i
looked in the mirror
didn't know who was there
now i'm better than i ever been
thinking bout the people
i been letting in
we'd get drunk and talk shit
your vibe was toxic
i had to stop it
we had to stop it
now i got options
and i'm opting out
the bullshit
knew i had to go
another route
i do get depressed
sometimes miss you dearly
you still at the same bar
the old me been buried

can't wait around
too slow
i ain't gonna pace around
i got goals
yeah i'm on my way right now
a hundred miles an hour
running, i’m never gon go home

took a closer look
and shit is looking the same now
took a little break
yeah, i had to go AWOL
tried hard, never ever got too far
job after job, knew i needed to do more
day and night, every shift a little overtime
all my life, thinking only bout a dollar sign
thought i had it when i got that callback
two interviews later now they're telling me to fallback
fumbled the ball, didn't understand how
till they told me my demeanor ain't really what they about
i scowled and groaned
my attitude's fuck everyone
came into this world alone
don't owe anyone
came into this world alone
don't owe anyone
came into this world alone
don't owe anyone
look at myself
readjusted my mindset
three promotions later
now i'm getting the big check

can't wait around
too slow
i ain't gonna pace around
i got goals
yeah i'm on my way right now
a hundred miles an hour
running, i’m never gon go home
