It’s survival of the fittest and so fit I will 'cause I’m afraid of my own company.

Everything’s a little loud right now and I feel like I only stand out.
It’s alarming how this feeling can bring us down.

But you own what’s in your head, mistaken memories are long time dead.
Ignite my fire. Find this desire again.

It’s the justifying all I do that can make me feel so blue.
There’s only peace that I find when I’m with you.

But you own what’s in your head, each fleeting thought you can't forget.
Ignite my fire. Find this desire again.

But you own what’s in your head, obvious feelings that are left unsaid.
Ignite my fire. Find this desire again.

It’s a mystifying component to find the strength in clarity.
When I get there, I’ll find there’s more to me.
