At the very, very, very last minute, just 30 minutes before this album's release, our last judge came online and re-tied the vote for including Steven's song or not. Since the votes were split down the middle, the decision was made to make this song a transitional track between rap rock blends and experimental music.

lyrics

Notice: At the very, very, very last minute, just 30 minutes before this album's release, our last judge came online and re-tied the vote for including Steven's song or not. Since the votes were split down the middle, and time was running out, the decision was made to make this song a transitional track between rap rock blends and experimental music.

[Verse 1:]
Say you spent your days far away from things you love
Eyes are looking glazed, it's an endless cycle of
"You're not good enough, you were never on the level
Misshapen to the core, far too jagged of a bevel."

An atmosphere of hapless fear,
This atlas-sphere that traps you here-
They don't hear that constant jeer
when they tell you to persevere

"Gets better," they all say,
"So, hunker down keep your chin up, hey?
Bow your head, and learn to pray-"
And they shake their heads when you walk away


[Chorus:]
Maybe now you know how to prove it
Don't look back or you'll find you're rooted down
To the ground

It's a fact, anywhere you are
For heaven's sake, you're the brightest star around
All around


[Verse 2:]
Now you're peering at the ceiling, the ceiling appearing fine starts with
Peeling and revealing the reeling you feel inside.
You're hearing that old demon and dealing is stealing time
But seeing as you're healing the feeling is realized that

You were never alone in your loneliness
Can't atone, and your tone is a ghost of its
Past glory but the story isn't over.
Think again in the morning when you're sober.

A depressing scene, and they're questioning.
But your pressing need, it's a jest, perceived.
You're the best you be, and you best believe,
In this lesson: see, it's never "just a dream."


[Chorus 2:]

Maybe now you know how to prove it
Don't look back or you'll find you're rooted down
To the ground

It's a fact, anywhere you are
For heaven's sake, you're the brightest star around
All around

So today is the day you're leaving
Chase the rain, all the pain will even out
Somehow...

It's a fact, anywhere you are
For heaven's sake, you're the brightest star around
All around

[End:]
Maybe now you'll know how to prove it
Maybe now you'll know how to prove it
Don't give it up, no not one bit
You're much more, and that's just it
Hum a tune, help your mind forget
'Cause music heals like a tourniquet

Maybe now you'll know how to prove it
Maybe now you'll know how to prove it
Got so much in your life to prove,
People there don't believe in you.
Know we all feel the same way too;
Wish we could leave but we just make do.

Maybe now you'll know how to prove it
Maybe now you'll know how to prove it
Don't give it up, no not one bit
You're much more, and that's just it
Hum a tune, help your mind forget
'Cause music heals like a tourniquet

Maybe now you'll know how to prove it
Maybe now you'll know how to prove it
