Jesse Tenser

Plant the seed and grow the flower
Pick up your thoughts and take a shower
Scrub your brain with antiseptic cleanser
You’ll remember everything you haven’t done
Was it that bad?
Was it sometimes fun?
Did you every think it would come to this?
Is it weighing on you?
Does it still exist?

I want it all but I won’t get it
Hear that voice and try to let it
Take your mind just one more time
You’ll never be right, you’ll never be fine.

Right, you’re right, you should never give up the fight.
But sometimes you have to surrender quietly and go.

All the pride and all the glory gets lost in the need.
It takes you back to selfish acts and just won’t let you be.
