lyrics

The writings on the wall ain't mine at all
I wonder when these angels gonna catch me from this fall
I try to move on and I try to stay strong
But I'm afraid of the dark, please turn the lights on, turn the lights on

Damn, it's been a few months now
And I ain't got a new song, I haven't wrote a thing down
Except, except the writings on the wall
"But that penmanship is different Scottie, I don't think it's yours"
Wait, who the hell is talking to me?
There goes another one, who the hell is walking with me?
Dishonesty, insecurity, envy, can't be
Uh, I ain't never been the type to be a jealous kind of dude
In a spiteful kind of mood with an attitude of rude
When my clouds is all gloom
But these demons keep feeding me a rotten silver spoon
Uh, I am so confused now, I'm too young to be feeling this senile
But I see now, when you're at the top the only place to look is down

The writings on the wall ain't mine at all
I wonder when these angels gonna catch me from this fall
I try to move on and I try to stay strong
But I'm afraid of the dark, please turn the lights on
The writings on the wall ain't mine at all
I wonder when these demons gonna catch me from this fall
I try to move on and I try to stay strong
But I'm afraid of the dark, please turn the lights on, turn the lights on

Damn, it's been a few days now
And I ain't ate a damn thing, I haven't had a lick of water
Uh, I guess that's what stress brings, I guess that's what stress brings
But Vinny's drums are so loud and the crowd is going wild
You can never tell I'm stressing
I know this stage is such a blessing
But it's hard for me ever to enjoy it
Cause most of my guys collect unemployment
And every month I'm still struggling to make rent
Fuck, I wish I was a millionaire
But these wishes keep falling on deaf ears
So I drop to my knees and I beg prayers
It's like I'm walking a million miles just to find stairs
But the stress of success is you never know when it's coming, it's all guessing

The writings on the wall ain't mine at all
I wonder when these angels gonna catch me from this fall
I try to move on and I try to stay strong
But I'm afraid of the dark, please turn the lights on
The writings on the wall ain't mine at all
I wonder when these demons gonna catch me from this fall
I try to move on and I try to stay strong
But I'm afraid of the dark, please turn the lights on, turn the lights on

A long time ago, I said "Mommy,
Won't you tell me a story
About the man who never left his house at all?"
She said he spent his years just waiting
All the while his life was fading
Until he died without ever answering the call
Weeks went by, people started to wonder
So they stormed his house in a thunder
And found a note next to his body in the hall
It said: "I couldn't take another season (I couldn't take another season)
And if you want to know the reason (And if you want to know the reason)
Just look around and read the writings on the wall (Just look around and read the writings on the wall)"

The writings on the wall ain't mine at all
I wonder when these angels gonna catch me from this fall
I try to move on and I try to stay strong
But I'm afraid of the dark, please turn the lights on
The writings on the wall ain't mine at all
I wonder when these demons gonna catch me from this fall
I try to move on and I try to stay strong
But I'm afraid of the dark, please turn the lights on, turn the lights on
