Verse 1
Way back a million years ago
The palm trees were flooded, I know
But in terror, we hugged and laughed
Through these trials, we were attached
Now what do we have?
Distance, the internet, and it bad
Now when do I break?
I’m too busy not to be fake

I’m just an infant in a blue collar
I’m just an infant who acts smarter
I’m just an infant losing the battle
I’m just an infant lost to the chattle
I’m just infinite infant
Verse 2
I stare straight into the sun
As in the valley, I plunge
I see faces of ghosts
Of those who always meant the most
Now what do I want?
So much of what I’ve got
Now why is that not enough?
It’s never enough


Verse 3
I don’t want to settle but I don’t know what’s better than this
(In a blue collar)
But I just can’t help thinking that something is missing
(Who acts smarter)
Nothing I’m doing seems to be taking me where I want to go
(Losing the battle)
Help me, I can’t breath, I’m drowning slowly
(Lost to the chattle)
I’m just infinite infant
