lyrics

I'm not sure what made you leave
For years you disappeared
You returned you weren't the same
You had aged more than your years

What we accomplished today
I like the new you this way
I like the new you this way
I like the new you this way
I like the new you this way

Once upon a time
Once upon a time

Pushing against an unseen force
I'm not sure why I fight no more
It's like my muscles learned the lesson
And just repeat until I'm lessened

The past repeats a past regression
An exercise in self-reflection
Exorcise past repression
Empty of the last impression

I Have to keep a little remorse
I have to resist and stay the course
On the outside it's a cool sheen
You don't see the layers in-between

Full of tarnish and gut rot
The result of bottling up the lot
It builds a special kind of pain
The kind that never goes away

Fortunately it keeps the balance
It represents every challenge
I haven't tried to let it go
Maybe I don't want to know

What it's like to just give in
Resisting is the way to win
I have to resist the constant flow
Against the grain is how I grow

Pushing against the unseen force
It's not your fight no more

Pushing against the unseen force
I'm not sure why I fight no more
It's like my muscles learned the lesson
And just repeat until I'm lessened
