Self Help

crank up your chin unscrew your brain
clip the wires and rearrange
recite this phrase I love myself
every day every day until it's part of every cell
take the saw and cut the ties
it hurts at first but it's better than the lies
you'll get strong you'll get better
you can measure your progress with a tape measure

tear out the old foundation hammer in the new frame
pour your heart into it your soul into it you're not the same
you got this now change is what it's all about
you're not allowed to listen to the voices that say you're no good
there's no time left to be misunderstood

help yourself
believe in yourself
trust yourself

place your hands over your heart
take a breath every breath is a brand new start
Give a smile no need for drama
open your arms big and wide and hug the dalai lama
accept it all then let it go
the tears that fall will give you a rainbow
write it down for more effect
sketch out in a blueprint cause you're the architect

tear out the old foundation hammer in the new frame
pour your heart into it your soul into it you're not the same, you’re not to blame
you got this now change is what it's all about
you're not allowed to listen to the voices that say you're no good
there's no time left to be misunderstood

help yourself
love yourself
be kind to yourself
then you can help everyone else

you might not live up in a castle
but you will always have a home
who needs a shiny car or fancy jewelry
when you have the stars in the sky that will sparkle for free
and you have you I’m serious
its enough because you have the rest of us
