AL3 – Brokenhearted

They say I’m smart as hell when it comes to the mind
When it comes to the heart, I’m dumb as a donkey’s behind
So I come to the one thing that brings my release
Now that my heart and my soul can’t cry for peace
Because I’m tired of crying, contemplating, and trying
I give up on this, brokenhearted and dying
I gave it my all, regardless of what you say
Or what part of this story you wanna play
I can play the victim or play the bad guy
But this story ends worse for both if I try
To tell a false story and try to sugar coat
Or try to be cocky and try to simply gloat
So I tell the truth and simply apologize
And hope to be forgiven for deception and lies
I’m gonna be me, and that’s how it’s going down
Let’s get this life together and quit playing around
I take my conscience back, I restore my moral code
I take my life back before the brown and gold
I bring who I was before I put it in
And I push the reset button and start again

My life story is that I’m simply broken down
Walking this life, smiling through a frown
Smiling through the pain, optimizing misery
Ignoring the past and forgetting history (x2)

For the past 9 years I’ve been in the game
Simply put, I was never the same
I felt pain in those years to last a lifetime
The pain that I caused daily fills my mind
Because a heavy conscience is my biggest weakness
And people made fun of me because of my meekness
So, we traded places and now I see true power
Even in this life’s darkest hour
When I walked across the sands, the life had changed
My priorities began to shift, adjust and rearrange
I then felt a desire to play and change the game
I kept pushing forward and kept getting hit
And I kept on pushing forward, not giving a shit

My life story is that I’m simply broken down
Walking this life, smiling through a frown
Smiling through the pain, optimizing misery
Ignoring the past and forgetting history (x2)
