A song about growing up.
Someone Tell Me
lyrics by Tristan Weiland

When nothing's as bright as sunlight
And the dark comes sooner every night
It's time to face reality

When there's no place left to go
It's too late to believe in heroes
This time, nothing's going to be free

Once in a lifetime, this feeling comes
And it's time to start living life for real
You realize that talk is not enough
The world will come to break down your ideals

The catalyst of changing your mind comes
To break you down and tell you you were wrong
Now it's time to take a stand
And show them where all your fear has gone

Someone tell me
Can you see my naiveté
When I'm wearing my heart on my sleeve?
Someone tell me
Can you tell my voice is cracking
When I'm telling you what I believe?
Am I the poisoned child you left for dead?
Am I the lost cause that you bargained with
To take the easy fall down?

Mom and dad never get the picture
I gotta do this on my own
I know I'll fail if I dream too big
That's how I know that I have grown

No room for error this time
Time's a bitch when the money has run out
Time to call them on their bullshit
You're gonna learn what you've been without

Someone tell me
Can you see my naiveté
When I'm wearing my heart on my sleeve?
Someone tell me
Can you tell my voice is cracking
When I'm telling you what I believe?
Am I the poisoned child you left for dead?
Am I the lost cause that you bargained with
To take the easy fall down?

Someone tell me
Can you see my naiveté
When I'm wearing my heart on my sleeve?
Someone tell me
Can you tell my voice is cracking
When I'm telling you what I believe?
Am I the poisoned child you left for dead?
Am I the empty shell you bargained with
To take the easy fall down?
