lyrics

Strangers at the table, mad before the feast
Heaven’s in the kitchen full of those who’ve had the least
Can’t believe, we take to give and then receive

Breeze unfolds the curtains and the hunger pains
You check your neighbor’s bowl to see what still remains
That’s how it starts, you feed your need for bleeding hearts

It’s just an insecurity, it’s how you feel
Comparing all your flaws to people’s highlight reels
You’ve got your whole life to live without a reason to fear
That you might have less than the person next

So keep it real
Turn the wheel

It’s a universal party, it’s the same refrain
When everybody’s living no one can complain
It’s what I earned, how can you be so unconcerned

Cause everybody’s saying everything’s just fine
The key to staying strong is knowing when to cry
When things are bleak, to speak your heart is never weak

It’s just an insecurity, it’s how you feel
Comparing all your flaws to people’s highlight reels
You’ve got your whole life to live without a reason to fear
That you might have less than the person next

So keep it real
Turn the wheel

Give what you take and we all take a turn
And the wheel will move on when all of us learn to
Give what you take and we all take a turn
And the wheel will move on when all of us learn to
Give what you take and we all take a turn
And the wheel will move on when all of us learn to
Give what you take and we all take a turn
And the wheel will move on when all of us learn

To be as open as a tundra sky
In nothing I have everything, I guess that’s why
It’s nothing new, I give to live and follow through

It’s just an insecurity, it’s how you feel
Comparing all your flaws to people’s highlight reels
You’ve got your whole life to live without a reason to fear
That you might have less than the person next

So keep it real
Turn the wheel
Keep it real
Turn the wheel
