about

Shut You Out is a lyrical continuation of an earlier track called Book Keeper. Shut You Out represents moving on and isolating the world around you to continue your current life, and to live in the here and now.

lyrics

Shut You Out

Theres not much more that I can do
but hate myself when I think of you.
You are the reason i sleep by the door
and count the cracks on the wooden floor.

Can I keep living in the future, when you keep living in the past?
At times Its best to just let it die.

Should I keep you in
Or should I shut you out.

Cause I've been caving in.
And I can't figure out

If this is even me
Or what you want me to be
x2

Am I what you wanted me to be?

Am I what you wanted me to be?

Ive been here bed ridden
with nothing but blank books to relate to.
Topics of my younger thoughts.
Contemplating "was i right or wrong?"

Since you've been gone I've grown so much.
Do you even recognize me anymore?
I've grown a lot since I was four, right?

Cause I've been caving in.
And I can't figure out
If this is even me
Or what you wanted me to be

Am I what you wanted me to be?
Am I what you wanted me to be?

Am I what you wanted me to be? (From father and son to strangers)
Am I what you wanted me to be? (From father and son to strangers
