counterpoint lyrics – mindset

i know enough to know i’ll never know
what you hope to find
in those empty bottles, and petty problems
that manipulate your mind

and i know… i’ll never know
what it means to feel at ease in line with the status quo
i’ll stand alone

you look at me like i’m some kind of freak
as if a man couldn’t survive in a world so bleak
without the smoke, the mirrors, the great escape
a social illusion that i won’t partake

and i know… i’ll never know
what it means to feel at ease in line with the status quo
i’ll stand alone

i’ve seen a my fair share come and go but i know i’ll
never slip
not fueled by hate, i just can’t relate
to those nights spent losing grip

all i know…
i can’t let go.
