lyrics

Last time I took me an hour to make it down that road
Of loneliness and loss and fear and dirt
Had no idea what kind of hell I got myself into
But I knew it was gonna hurt

We bled a lot of tears, we tore down the walls
Drop the stones of trauma in the creek
Saw there’s no path to joy until the mask falls
And I made friends for life in a week

I handle hmx, RDX, fox 7, TNT
Like it’s just another day
Taking that long walk to the danger is easy for me
I know how to make it go away
I’m good at this one thing
I’m still here and that’s the proof
But staring down my demons
There’s no bomb suit for the truth

This time I flew down that road with a cloud of dust behind me
Even had a smile on my face
Carrying the tools, doing the work
Feels like going home, coming back to this place

There’s a light at the end of the tunnel and I know it’s not a train
I’ve made peace with the voices in my head, I don’t live by what they’re sayin’

I handle hmx, RDX, fox 7, TNT
Like it’s just another day
Taking that long walk to the danger is easy for me
I know how to make it go away
I’m good at this one thing
I’m still here and that’s the proof
But staring down my demons
There’s no bomb suit for the truth

With faith in other people’s kindness I reconnected with old friends
Paid my penance, got forgiveness, dropped the burden, made amends

I handle hmx, RDX, fox 7, TNT
Like it’s just another day
Taking that long wa lk to the danger is easy for me
I know how to make it go away
I’m good at this one thing
I’m still here and that’s the proof
But staring down my demons
There’s no bomb suit for the truth
