August Burns Red - Extinct by Instinct lyrics

Stuck in the past
The future is too open-ended (Too open-ended)
I can't miss
Something that never existed (Never existed)
I'll keep persisting

The outcomes don't always go my way
I still can't cover them and make them gray
The outcomes don't always go my way
I will let decisions lie where they may

When I blur the lines
I don't have to focus
Shrug my shoulders
That's just how it goes, I guess

Diving headfirst into indifference
I'll take on everything over feeling anything
Positive impacts are meaningless
If I don't tolerate the pain of the negative

Something I had to learn
Was how to show care and concern
You won't hear that your plea will never be
I'm shaken to the core
Paralyzed by reality
I'll curl up
Hide inside
This is my shelter
To escape in

In here I disappear
Where there is no fear

Stuck in the past
The future is too open-ended (Too open-ended)
I can't miss
Something that never existed (Never existed)
I never thought I'd have it inside
To decide what is right for myself
Proof of this selfishness that won't leave
Crushing until we can't breathe

Its grip held firm
Its grip held firm
One day it lets go
One day it lets go
I need you to forgive me
