Everybody Plays to Win is something I started working on in March of 2012. It was one of the first tracks I tested when I started working more realistic drums and bass into my mixes. It was originally called They're Under Your Skin.

Lyrics:
A piece of
Handbreaks and keys, love
This ether in the drains
Is spinning me around my veins

In search of peace, though
Hard knocks and free flow
This sharp precipitation leads
To tendered hearts and furrowed knees

And I am not alone inside this room
A deadbolt slipped and I am gone

And I am not alone inside this room
A deadbolt slipped and I am gone
I am not afraid, am not contained
A latchkey bent, I am gone

And I am not afraid, am not contained
A latchkey bent, I am gone

Tell me how you get so thin
Everybody plays to win
You'll become the things you fear

Tell me how you got so thin
Everybody plays to win
You'll become the things you fear
You think your skin's so clear

Back and forth again
Back and forth again, my friend
Back and forth again
Back and forth again, my friend

Freeflow
Handbreaks and keys, love
This ether in my veins
Is spinning me around the drains

And I am not alone inside this room
A deadbolt slipped and I am gone
I am not afraid, am not contained
A latchkey bent, I am gone

Tell me how you get so thin
Everybody plays to win
You'll become the things you fear

Tell me how you got so thin
Everybody plays to win
You'll become the things you fear
You think your skin's so clear
