I Don’t Want to Go There
Sean Counihan / Will Kimbrough

lyrics

I keep moving, I stay busy, I'm so organized
Every day is planned out just so I can stay alive
Everybody says I need to find a peaceful place
But when it gets too quiet I feel like I'm in a race
That I can't win and if I let it catch me I might lose my grip
The storm is dark and heavy and I can't afford to slip
A brutal and relentless cloud that follows me around
It's always right behind me, so I can't slow down

This is my life, my struggle, it's no way to live
I can see the path ahead, and see the one I've lived
Full of pain and doubt and suffering and I know it's just not fair
I don't want to go there - No, I don't want to go there

There's no resolution to this situation here
Just a never-ending marathon where I outrun my fear
It's exhausting but I always find the energy I need
A purpose and a reason to keep my strength and speed

-CHORUS-

There are good days when I can outpace calamity
Good days on the precipice of finally breaking free
Making stipulations to avoid reality
So I keep moving, I stay busy, I'm so organized
Everyday is planned out just so I can stay alive
Everybody says I need to find a peaceful place
But when it gets too quiet I feel like I'm in a race

-CHORUS-
