Brand New Day

3:19 A.M. 08-04-09

Sometimes I wonder if I was born under a bad sign
I keep trying to convince myself the good life is mine
Keep pushing, keep striving, keep poppin'
No slowing, no breaking, no stoppin'
My ideas are like a lotto ticket
One day I will have that fence that needs a picket
I'm gonna break through
No matter what they do
Too much talent on the rise
To let the haters wear a disguise

You can't keep me like a collection
You can't stop my crowd reception
You know nothing about this game
You know nothing about this fame
No matter what you say
Soon, I'm gonna have my Brand New Day

Like a clock on the wall
If your held back, it seems to crawl
Be rolling, be determined, be positive
No doubting, no taking, ya got to give
So little time to make a dent
Gotta make your time repent
Make every second count
'Cause it can add up to a large amount
I will break through
In spite of what you do
I am on the rise
I can see the haters disguise

You can't keep me like a collection
You can't stop my crowd reception
You know nothing about this game
You know nothing about this fame
No matter what you say
Soon, I'm gonna have my Brand New Day

Never stop, I have to have that perception
I know I'll soon be in the right direction
Ha, no matter what you say
I'm gonna have my Brand New Day

  23. Did you really write that in 8 minutes? Woh.

    So you write songs, you run a successful blog, you take photos, your sports predictions are pretty dead on, you ran a successful nightclub, you abandonded/fought for your real name over a copyright lawsuit with a band using it, and you keep who you are hidden….just imagine if you came out. You would simply blow up.

    Your parents must be proud and your girlfriend very lucky. Thanks for the gift doc and being you.

  24. This makes me want to get up and do something! It’s been a while since lyrics have made me do that. Thanks man!
