lyrics

One day
Is the next day
Is the next day
Is the day that follows
One day
Full of darkness
For the heartless
For the cold and callous
Love
But it’s not
Oh my god
Gotta leave these shadows
Made my own religion
With a mission
To escape the gallows

So I just tilt my head back
And stare up to the ceiling
Pretending nothing’s wrong
We go on

I don’t know when
But sometime soon
I’ll finally learn
To talk to you
When silence
Feels like solace
I can’t make sense
When you need me to
This is
The connection
I missed out on
For my phobic ego
Living
Is all-consuming
And it’s so much more
Than I have to give you

I’m drifting away
Repeating and repeating
A comfortable mistake
The shallows of dreams
Oh god let me be released

This is the place
I used to go
I don’t live far
I still walk there now
The weather’s nice
I don’t live far
It’s a labyrinth
I’m a minotaur
The blinding sun
I step outside
A breath of air
And my head feels light
I’ve written down
The words to say
The future starts today
No more mistakes
No getting angry
A braver face
A heart that’s happy
