lyrics

[Verse 1]
Another morning in the city, the air is ripe
Of asphalt vapor and dust, and every face just
Hides behind papers or screens, to not betray
The inner screams, later to be directed at others

Such as lovers and kids, if words don't fly
Then hands will or pots and pans of steel
The young ones absorb that, go off at classmates
Under peer pressure to get some on their next date

Gotta have brand name threads, cause exclusion's a real
Wound and it's hard to Band-Aid that
Especially if you gotta look good on IG
Like it's par for the course in this modern society

Nothing fair about it, it's rough - Consumerism is a drug
Skewed concepts of manhood are breeding thugs
Games are played like nobody needs love
Lying to each other, in technology we trust


[Hook]
Everywhere you look, it's cold (during summer)
And cold (during spring) and cold (during fall)
We can't let winter in our hearts, need a glimmer
For the dark, push forward cause the end is not far when

Everywhere you look, it's cold (during summer)
And cold (during spring) and cold (during fall)
The temperatures arise but hearts are still callous
Minds are calculating, therefore we need balance


[Verse 2]
Someday, I'll be a father, if I have a daughter
Will she want to be Kim K or Malala?
If I have a son, will he inherit my rebellious spirit?
Or will he be content in this system?

Wouldn't want my children to suffer the same strife
Though adversities are what makes you tougher in life
Success is to be earned, it shall not be given
If you do things on your own, the reward is the wisdom

That there are things you can't do alone, and there are
Two paths to achieve them, through friendship or business
Motives are disguised, be aware of them all
And prepare for the rise, likewise for the fall

To be true to yourself among many is a challenge
Extremes are aplenty, the rarest thing is balance
A handful of jewels tucked away for the time
That I gotta raise mine, though they'll never be enough


[Hook]
Everywhere you look, it's cold (during summer)
And cold (during spring) and cold (during fall)
We can't let winter in our hearts, need a glimmer
For the dark, push forward cause the end is not far when

Everywhere you look, it's cold (during summer)
And cold (during spring) and cold (during fall)
The temperatures arise but hearts are still callous
Minds are calculating, therefore we need balance
