lyrics

You forget what you were told on the eve of your disgrace. Chip away at your soul each and every Saturday. You have a joke that’s getting old
but you tell it anyway and when the nights are growing cold
you don’t ever hibernate. You can’t pretend a fire’s not forming. You can’t pretend the sky’s not falling. You don’t listen with your heart that often and every little spark’s forgotten. You have a language that you use it’s potion for the weak. To temporary homes you’ll raise the dead before you sleep.
When morning brings shame simply knuckle down build a wall against the pain, you’re used to it by now. You wish to be alone and just think then you’re shouting at your phone to just ring. When your bodies taken all that it can handle take a breath, crawl and you’ll be landing soon.
