Patience – Lyrics

Inside, my patience is razor thin
Cutting me open from within
I feel this burden reaching through my skin
With wait comes worries — that’s the perception

I beg for patience until my mouth runs dry
Just like the rivers that rolled through my eyes

(Wait! Wait! Wait! Wait!)
For your turn!
It’s your life if you want to burn it
(Make! Make! Make! Make!)
Me stop wanting!
I build higher while the bricks are falling
Is it so wrong
To want the future in the present
If I wait too long
I’ll never get a chance to make things different

Why can’t I be patient?

I did not choose the current state I’m in
Trying to write my story starting at the end
Trying to map my path before the lines begin
In an endless circle that I’m running in

I beg to have it until my mouth runs dry
Like my blood while I just wait and die

(Wait! Wait! Wait! Wait!)
For your turn!
It’s your life if you want to burn it
(Make! Make! Make! Make!)
Me stop wanting!
I build higher while the bricks are falling
Is it so wrong
To want the future in the present
If I wait too long
I’ll never get a chance to make things different

Why can’t I be patient?
Why can’t I be patient?
