I’m committed, but conflicted
contradicted, but confirmed
in knowing that I know that I have so much left to learn
a purveyor of the problem, out here trying to solve myself
feeling discrepancy between what I have seen and what I’ve felt

we’re all searching for our own versions of Heaven over Hell
but nothing really changes until we decide to change ourselves
and I won’t settle to watch the world burn from up here in the cheap seats
but right now I know that I still need to listen before I speak

I was born a microphone, and all I want to do is sing
but does this world even need another song from one like me
if all the world’s indeed a stage, then we are merely overplayed
I want to sing the song that helps the unsung singers have their say

peel the Summer off my shoulders, let the cold cover my skin
and cast away my comfort, let the change begin
and in our finest hour, let me stand up by your side
I want to do what’s right while I still have the time
