Tonedeff - "Sunrise"
Written & Produced By: Tonedeff for QN5 Music (ASCAP)

When the day is done
And I can't breathe, no I can't see,
No, no with my eyes on fire.
Yeah, with my eyes on fire.

I feel like I'm working every single day of the week
And I can't sleep, no no, with my heart on fire.
Yeah, with my heart on fire.

The night has been so dark & cold
I want to walk all alone in the sunrise.
In the sunrise.

Do you wanna live? I wanna remember what it feels like
To be embedded in a real life
When the deal's dicey and it's evident it's another surreal night...
Then I'm f'in to check if the lid on my head is sealed tight.
Cause I would give anything to replenish the dream inside
Tethered together by a steal line -
Drawing it's heat from the light, deprived
Reaching for Helio's height's
Leaning without a means to survive, till the ceiling divides.
I hid every bit of esteem and concealed it inside -
Cause when you need to feed on it, then it eats you alive.
Cause when you believe that you're right and nobody's seeing your side
You tend to agree - I don't need another reason to die.
People can turn a blind eye and you've gotta pardon them
When your character flaw is a self-imposed martyrdom
Part of the prob is shock it exists -
It's seen but never felt like a victim describing a shot to a witness.
Isn't this just coincidence? The shit's a mess
Missing photosynthesis in this den I'm imprisoned within.
It's a sin as I wither away,
As if business will give me the pleasure that flickers and fades as I live in this haze
I wanna be riddled with millions of rays on the skin of my face
Till the cinnamon pigment is colored crimson in shade
And I've been in the gray and I'm sick of waiting
And I don't want to wonder anymore if the sun has risen today.

Let the sun rise on.
Let it shine on.
Until it burns away.
