lyrics

Cold like corpses
Touch averse
Not just godless
Introverts
All of your suggestions
Gonna stay unwelcome
‘Cause I’m afraid that
Something works

Why am I so surprised
When I find that it’s an uphill climb?
I’ve done it all my life

Daylight breaking
Through the blinds
A new beginning
For other kinds
I declare surrender
As they snap the tether
And brave the weather
Better minds.

Why am I so surprised
When I find that it’s an uphill climb?
I’ve done it all my life
It’s a pattern I should recognize
No summit left in sight
When it’s only cliffs and mountainsides
All these ways to lose the fight
I’d give it all for a little light

I can feel it
Narrow down
Loss of power
Axiom
Drowning out the voices
In a sea of noises
The boiling water
Call it home

Why am I so surprised
When I find that it’s an uphill climb?
I’ve done it all my life
It’s a pattern I should recognize
No summit left in sight
When it’s only cliffs and mountainsides
All these ways to lose the fight
I’d give it all for a little light
