lyrics

What good is a light bulb if it’s dimly lit?
You see the light, but it serves no purpose.
Like lukewarm water (it’s destined for spit!)
It’s gone and forgotten (no function, no will).
I fight for desire, I search for unrest-
I know it’s not easy, I’ve got to commit,
But lackluster living, it reels me back in.
Lackluster living.

If you find me stagnant.
If you find me comfortable.
If you find me tuning out,
The ones who push me forward.
I urge you to provoke me,
I urge you to disrupt my quiet.
If I seek indifference,
I’ll never know desire.

Grit through the struggle and tense for the hits.
To have motivation you have to commit,
Like any commitment, there’s doubts that creep in,
But you have to sustain, you have to resist

Grit through the struggle and tense for the hits.
To have motivation you have to commit,
Like any commitment, there’s doubts that creep in,
But you have to sustain, you have to resist

I see myself in the dust that collects
at the bottom of closets where skeletons sit,
‘Cause everything that I had begun to see,
Were products of all my regrets and my grief.
Their presence, it lingered, like smoke off a wick.
They kept me from reaching for what I once held.
I know it’s not easy, I've got to commit.
For lackluster was making me sick.

You grit through my struggles, You tensed for my hits.
You cleaned out my closets, removing the filth.
You saved me from sinking to hopeless lamenting,
Its actions like this that demand a reaction!

Selfish am I if I don’t share the news!
Ungrateful am I if I stand, unmoved.
For I have been freed of all guilt,
And selfish am I if I don’t share the news.
