you can't take it all with you/each piece of your past/bookshelves of relics/flyers and photographs/cover these walls/your first page of lyrics so vague and haphazardly scrawled/just fight the way you feel inside/take your time to find out what's right to leave behind/decide/separate yourself from the mentality that things encapsulate memories/so let go of the books, worn out t-shirts you loved/they're just clutter/they mean nothing now/but you can't help the feeling to save everything so you drown/and you can't fight your way out to save your life x 2/you can't fight your way out anymore/all the symbols you clutch/aid your delusion of how pure your life once was/just let go of that urge to attain what's unattainable/don't be so naive/you're choking the present 'cause your past won't let you breathe/open up your eyes/it might just save your life
