lyrics

As if on cue
They lit a firework
The sky reeled back
And I ran fast
To get to you

I think you knew
Before the war began
What loving to run to something
Can do to a man

Fall over the edge
Learn to live while falling
Every life
Is a path worth following
When you put it in words
It’s comfortingly bland
There’s so little left
To understand

When we’re strung up hanging
From the knots we've allowed
we call up our angels
To cut us down
“If you could be proud
Of anything you’ve done
What would it be?”
Then they disappear
And we are up in the clouds

I feel the tension shock
Right through my body
I am wide awake
shake a laugh from me

I thought one day
I thought I’d find a hole
In my own backyard
I’d never seen before
Follow it down
underneath that fence
I come back up on the other side
Live another life

Break down the door and it’s yours for the taking
I held it back til you stopped asking
My eyes are blurred the clock is ticking
I’m coming up short in a life worth nothing

I hear women in my head
with ordinary names
That ring like magic
Through some malfunction in my brain
Your hands were warm
Though you came in from the cold
I took one and held it
And suddenly start to shake
shake...

I feel it break I feel the waves of anger pain and sorrow
Breaking over me
The flags are raised, we part with no goodbyes and no tomorrows
This is destiny
Memories of the best regrets I played my song in every single rest
Every note
Of the symphony
Mend the fence with the best of grace it’s
Pleasantries to the bottom of the page
I’m sorry
