Bandages Lyrics

Reminiscing
On the ways that we used to be living
Bad decisions
In the moment didn't know that I was slipping (Huh)
Growing up in the dark
But my closest told me I had to fend for my heart
The world try to tear us apart
Young kids don't know the damage of their thoughtless remarks
So, I cry again
Choking up, hopeless feelings, wanna die again
Asking questions like "umm, who am I again?"
Is everything true? Am I exactly what they said I am? Nahhhh
Man, that couldn't be right
Because I thought I was just a regular guy
They jealous of my grades or hazel shades inside of my eyes
Or was I really weird, different, and a bit oversize?
I don't know
It's possibly true
But how else you supposed to think when they constantly tell you
In all honesty, you ain't no regular dude
Come to school, off-brand shoes, got a bob for a doo
Look, I'm still a kid inside
And so I
Enjoy the ride
And yes
I like surprise
Because
My youth will never die
And through the tarnish and the garbage
The hardships never brought me down
They never brought me down
They never brought me down
(no)
But now, they finally like me
So what am I supposed to do when the serpent bites me
Resist the temptation, but man, that's quite unlikely
Overwriting
The values that I once held inside me
Held highly
The values that I clung to so tightly
My gosh, he works in such menacing ways
And I did not know what it looked like to be rightfully saved
Misbehaved
Every single change that I got to
Unwisely
Can't believe the devil took me so lightly (yeah)
A slow fade goes does in a spiral
But all the kids care about nowadays is going viral
As long as reputation enhances
They don't mind showing off their body and doing dances
It's cancerous
Society constantly damages
The minds of young teens using them for advantages
They'll probably have a couple of wounds
That we try to heal temporarily with some bandages
A small fix for a permanent scar
Lacerations that just constantly tear at the heart
I don't care if I chart
I'm just honest with who I am, put myself in this art
Look
I've been there before
I've been in a place where I've been sitting yearning for more
I know it's not easy to see
But if you let God take the veil off He will finally restore
You
To a better life
I said it right
Don't make me say it twice
Like I forgot my lines
He won't forget
Our hefty debt
We've yet to pay
So we can stay
In the world we lay
His Son paid the price
So we can live again
You understand?
So, back to the subject at hand
I know you're probably thinking Austin throws out hefty demands
Man, his whole life there were always people saying he can't
I think he's starting to come to realize he actually can
Full circle
I gave you guys a glimpse of my life
New hurdles
Shiny things just try to entice
True journals
I jot down all the feats of my life
Bleed purple
Yeah your boy still wearing his stripes
Can't deny where I'm from
But it's super cool to see just how far I don come
From sitting on the couch, like a bum
To writing rhymes that hit your ears
Smoother than birds with a hum
A hum that turned into a buzz
That exposed the truth the dude's had inside of his lungs
This man's story has just now begun
They want an ocean of emotion?
Hope you're ready for the plunge
