lyrics

[Verse 1]

It’s one step forward, and two steps back
In this maze gotta find a way through intact

Yeah life comes you, who knew it’s this fast
On this one impasse gotta make an impact

Distracted by dissatisfaction
Recursive, my purpose in life is still lacking

Time passing, my mind is whip-lashing
Misguidance killed the fire in this, of this passion

Dig a track on a path to be discovered
Wishing for a clean route but oh it’s so cluttered

Submerged in all directions like colors on a mural
The word is “priority”, and know it isn’t plural

Wanna be immortalized, sorta like those ordered 4-quarter guys
Bordering on sure to rise and heavily disorganized

See the play in disarray
Think it then I say, that it’s gonna be okay


[Chorus x2]

Hey hey, it’ll be okay
(Be okay) it’ll be okay

Okay, it’ll be okay
(Be okay) it’ll be okay


[Verse 2]

Watching things spiral, less than desirable
Uphill battles and yet none of them are climbable

All offenses fireable, living check to check
This job is such a mess boss is breathing down my neck

Add a fear of failure, still afraid of success
But we can’t take a rest, I can’t even take a breath

(exhale) need a break from all the stress
So I’m praying for the best like it’s the only option left

Requests for my attention had me super hyperventin'
Pulled in all directions, so I focused my intention

Fear of missing out had me overly extended
Discarded so much madness to overhaul the method

I see it all the time, how we take it day to day
Never will unwind so it never fades away

Embracing what’s essential don’t go back into the fray
All you gotta do is say, that it’s gonna be okay


[Chorus x2]

Hey hey, it’ll be okay
(Be okay) it’ll be okay

Okay, it’ll be okay
(Be okay) it’ll be okay


[Verse 3]

Feeling capped how the peaks have their limits
And the valleys can go low enough to almost feel infinite

Seemingly uneven to the point you want to quit it
My chances disadvantaged starting right from the beginning

Try to save the highlights preventing a delete
Just to see the victories be canceled by defeats

True it hurts, thinking how you knew the worst
Nothing more chaotic than life inside this universe

Still pushing let my talents guide the course
Tried to find a center bringing balance to the force

Anything can change with a catalyst endorsed
Successes outshine overshadow the remorse

Finding any footing feels confusing now instead
You feel like stepping back is needed just to get ahead

An unexpected task, an additional delay
Remember to repeat, that it’s gonna be okay


[Chorus x2]

Hey hey, it’ll be okay
(Be okay) it’ll be okay

Okay, it’ll be okay
(Be okay) it’ll be okay


[Outro ad-libs]
