Clever

  • I guess being clever's just my safety net

    I hide behind my cadence
    I hide behind the walls
    I built so tall the weakness never spills

    I hide all of my burdens
    I twist my words so well
    I'm breaking but the lie is what I sell

    If I'm clever you might never understand
    I feel like death and me are walking hand in hand
    When my happiness is hanging by a thread I finally feel content
    I guess being being clever's just my safety net
    I guess being being clever's just my safety net

    I'll tell you I feel better
    I'll tell you I can sleep
    I hope that it can bring a sense of peace

    When all the nights are getting darker
    The day becomes so bleak
    Another day I'm conscious is another day I bleed

    If I'm clever you might never understand
    I feel like death and me are walking hand in hand
    When my happiness is hanging by a thread I finally feel content

    I'm so messed up and inconsistent in my head
    I feel my passing only benefits my friends
    When I know nothing I say matters in the end I finally feel content
    I guess being being clever's just my safety net

    I'm out of ways to answer
    I'm out of metaphors
    I finally got so sick, there is no cure

    I'm out of ways to answer
    I'm out of metaphors
    I finally got so sick, there is no cure

    If I'm clever you might never understand
    I feel like death and me are walking hand in hand
    When my happiness is hanging by a thread I finally feel content

    I'm so messed up and inconsistent in my head
    I feel my passing only benefits my friends
    When I know nothing I say matters in the end I finally feel content
    I guess being being clever's just my safety net Writer/s: Caleb Shomo
