lyrics

Should Have Lasted Years


First things first
Everyone falls sometimes
You’ve seen the worst
Words belied actions
we carry on trying
Did we expect too much?

upon closer inspection, there is a revelation
through white noise a whisper/cloaked in some strange power

It was all rehearsed
Everyone would see a new me
A tower built
On promises never filled
All The Gravity defying
Revealed as the stunt it was, it was


The worms come out
When it rains
Got me spooked
I’m running trying to hide
(but I can’t escape your light)

upon closer inspection, there is a revelation
through white noise a whisper/cloaked in some strange power
keep yearning, keep fighting don't ever stop trying, give into the process of living and dying


A break in my stride
Trying to pull the thorns from my eyes

Before long I’m stranded, forgotten who I am
And what We Were

just to break the silence, ill let you go to fall on your own again
break the silence


Wont you settle your mind
You don’t have to strive so
This is your pace and your time boy

Once you settle your mind
You don’t have to strive so
So dig in to this life and leave regret behind
