Track Name: Comeback
Don't label my comeback, it's more like a relapse
I've been pushed and shoved down and slipped into the cracks
In love with a girl but I have poor intentions
It rains, no it pours at the slight of a mention
Can't handle the stress of how I'm misbehaving
I'm looking to you, God, I'm looking for saving
I'll put up a fight if you tie back my fists
And I hope you don't mind when I open my lips

Been learning to deal with my procrastination
Kicked out of school and my life's a vacation
I was turned against and I lost all of my friends
I'm burning inside to air out all my conscious
I'll take forty minutes to describe my last years
The heartache, depression and irrational fears
This time there's a hope that I just might be winning
Sorry to warn you it's only beginning
