I surrender to the grass that is sharp; to blades that are green
I remember days that be long gone; passed youth as a teen
Last December; cold times for my life; for my dreams
Forgotten pleasure; late nights awake I would always sing
But what is rendered? Nothing but unfocused things
So, I surrender to the grass that is sharp; to blades that are green
And acquire a new path; a new form of belief
Running fiercely as like a free-flowing stream
Though long ago we'd go to places once only in our dreams
Yet today we show the less we know by tearing at the seams
We build our armies; the bravely bold, the powerful many
We take hold of our life stories; rewrite all new endings
Our hope and praying won't take the pain; it won't change the worry
We can't delete this lesson that's now; this role that we're playing
This ain't a movie, nor has this been a wanted plan of still staying
It's just simply a happening that isn't seen growing or even aging
Although, our knowing isn't gauged by the wisdom we're showing
It isn't ever based on how one impacts those who're self-loathing
It's measured precisely through an act of a person's strength; their want for more learning
A soul's need to rebuild; to gain a deeper understanding
Completely awake and forever asleep
I surrender to the sea that is wide; an ocean that is deep
I will experience clean waters; between my fingers it'll seep
Next summer; warm times for my goals made; the ones that I keep
Replace my pain; on stages I will finally be seen
But what is executed? Something full of given things
So, I surrender to the sea that is wide; an ocean that is deep
I've rewritten this living; I will fulfill these dreams
