Stay Strong Around Here

When the needle drops,
And the grenade pops
We lose the silence to silence
Only then we know what’s real from just props.

The pain bites different
In different shoe sizes
The flame burns hotter
For a better touch of shine.
When you come this close
Bending is inevitable, and
A masterpiece is not far-fetched

This is a war zone,
None should be found alone
There’s more to stones and bones
Than bricks and body parts
Break some, carve for sum
You are the builder and the tool
Stay strong and build for you.

When the needle drops,
And the grenade pops
We lose the silence to silence
Only then we know what’s real from just props.
