Optimism

about

Optimism is about having someone close to you that has become suicidal, and how helpless you can feel to stop it happening, all you can do is try as hard as you can and stay optimistic for their sake.

lyrics

I see ropes around your throat
And they tighten, and they tighten
Far away from all you knew, and I’m frightened
And I’m frightened what you’ll do

With no better options, and no running away
Was building up day by day
Will something perfectly minimal, get stuck in the way?

Hit me with a blind-side
Believe there’s nothing wrong
We can be optimistic, but only for so long
You’ve fallen by the wayside
But I’m not done

I’m breaking in
Watching over
Watching over
And I know you’re wearing thin
But I’m never, we are never giving in

You’ve got no better options, we’re not running away
We’re building up day by day
Will something perfectly minimal, get stuck in the way?

Start it over again
Find a new way
Trying to break this trend

And I’m perfectly minimal
But I’m showing the way
