Please enjoy this track "Prodigy" from our album Exit Strategies!

lyrics

You think it's all just my state of mind
Well I'll tell you this
I've seen first hand that nobody lives forever
If your image is the one thing
That you're scared to lose
I wonder who put that fear in you

When I first got here I rode in on one hell of a storm
How could you ever really think it'd be the last?
I heard you needed some help
Filling all the seats at your show
So thank me for that fire under your ass

I know that you may not have noticed
But I've grown into my own man
Your shame won't hold me anymore
And if you want someone to blame
Well you can put it on your back
When I burn this place to the floor

Another day comes to find me still
In the same damn hole
The one that I let you keep me in for you
But just when I thought I couldn't change
I found your worst nightmare
You see I think I'm starting to like it here
Yeah

When I first started to remember all the things I forgot
I can't deny it crossed my mind just to break down
Instead I'm here and showing you all of the things that I'm not
There's only room for one of us in this town

Hey!
I know that you may not have noticed
But I've grown into my own man
Your shame won't hold me anymore
And if you want someone to blame
Well you can put it on your back
When I burn this place down

Insanity
Break me down
Hit me again I'm begging you
Insanity
Now I'll make you
Eat all this pain you tried to give to me

Everybody has their problems
You're the one who had to have it all
Wanted it all

The funny thing is when I look at you
I know that deep inside you feel the same
As I do
So then why have you thrown so much away?
And after all the years of being ripped in two
I hope you're proud of what it has made me
And you wonder
Why they call me crazy

The one thing you should know about me
Is I will never be your prodigy
