DETERRENCE'S brand new single "Purpose"


Pardon my humanity
While I scribe these words and weep
There's just something that I've wanted to get off my chest
For quite some time
Inside eating me alive
What is the reason why
Live our lives
On one way streets
And never stop to think
About the way we love
Rip out my lungs
And throw them to the side
As if it makes a difference
Is if it is what keeps you breathing
I'll spending these waking moments searching for my own truth to justify my lost youth
Watch as it all comes back around
I'll trace it back to it's source
And divorce myself
From this world of broken
A purpose redefined
And still I'm wondering
Why can we not
See our lives in vivid colour
Why can we not
Bring it home
Because this family has no faith in this family
When will we see
There is more to life
Than just existing
We are the root of what we
Are but we do not exist
When will we learn
To see our lives in vivid colour
When will we learn
To bring it home

This worlds too dark a place for an honest heart to walk alone
So I suppose that tonight we find an exit, we're not going alone

The air in my lungs I've been holding for a friend
Who will recieve it when I
Rip out my lungs
Again and again and again
Until it makes a difference
Until it is what keeps you
I'll spend these moments
And resurface with a purpose
