Found Words – John Reuben

As I try to kick out another draft of this thesis, here’s some lyrics that speak to me:

Early in the AM, a new day’s in
I’m in my bed still laying
I think I’m gonna stay in
I’ve got to get motivation for what I’m facing
This world is heavy
I feel my weight bend
Pressure to measure up but I’m nothing special
I feel like an amateur in a world of professionals
And I know man, nobody’s a pro man
Some keep their heads high, some hang their heads low and
I’m trying to find and hang mine in the right place
Letting my weakness become your strength
I’m taking each day as it comes
Making each one a new one
I’m starting over with the rise of the sun
Embracing life this time holding onto what I believe in

(…)

The truth is humbling but also freeing
Yeah, brought to a spot of brutal honesty
Sometimes I feel all I’ve got is a pen and paper
The chance to be honest and hope in a savior
For a while it was hard to accept it
You see stereotypes and religion killed my perspective
So many questions aimlessly directed
I looked to myself to try and correct it
Now, that’s an expectation that I shouldn’t expect in
That’s a goal that I shouldn’t have set
Desire died and all that’s left was frustration
As well as an unhealthy self examination
I analyzed it all to the point of psychological torment
Still found no answers in my search for it
Somewhere in all of this I started to realize
I was looking to myself and things I couldn’t provide

– All in All
