lyrics

You’re still young, you’re still learning
we tell ourselves the days we’re hurting.
You’ll get it right tomorrow
and the money’s tight, but oh well.

No one ever told me growing up was like a battle royale
in the presence of the kingdom, I don’t even think that we can just be ourselves.

The cards we play for games sake
they stick around once the game’s been played.
And they give away the tells and tricks used
from the hardest days that we get through

No one ever told me growing up was like a battle royale
in the presence of the kingdom I don’t even think that we can just be ourselves
and we’re born in it, live in it, fight for it, and die for it - it’s full-circle ‘round
in the presence of the kingdom I don’t even think that we can make one single sound

But I’m up from the ground, it’s terribly loud
and the lost cause of all we are can’t be found
the consequence is ignorance - blame our intelligence
the youth we pulled and stole from the hands that we called
our old friends and family, so distant yet mean everything
they find us not is effigies, old postcards, and memories
the things that came and once were, to the ones that being us comfort
they reside inside the hearts and minds of all that we are but still

No one ever told me growing up was like a battle royale
in the presence of the kingdom I don’t even think that we can just be ourselves
and we’re born in it, live in it, fight for it, and die for it - it’s full-circle ‘round
in the presence of the kingdom I don’t even think that we can make one single sound
