Overstand (Ideal Green Remix feat. Phoebe Votolato)

from Long Way To Go (2011) by Drewvis Presents: Mara Project




Somehow I see now, it’s all up to me now,
I’m running out of things to say.
My argument’s toothless, excuses are useless,
Can’t stop me from running away.
I try to appease me, but found it’s not easy
To live in such a righteous way.
The karma continues collecting the sins
You won’t stop at the end of the day.

Woah, we’ll never see the end of the suffering, woah
Unless we stop - to question why...
Woah, it’s easy to believe nothing’s happening, woah
Your eyes may be open but you’re blind.

Through walking and breathing, believe we’re existing
But trapped by our own mistakes.
The time that you’re taking might lead to escaping
The small chance you’ll ever be saved.
To question the reason is how we should seize them
And stop them from getting away,
Won’t rope them or brand them, we must overstand them
And push for a positive change.

It's bit of a long genre name though... I've been on a very long hiatus, but I am currently working on some NEW MUSIC! ... more
