lyrics

When the noise is gone,
in quiet moments I can gather my scattered thoughts.
Fragile and weak, like a newborn learning to breathe.
And when the world moves on, it leaves my stomach, freezes words to the end of my tongue.
When you collide with your soul,
it bruises to the bone.

It’s the weight of a crown on a kid,
Who shoulders the world and the pain that it gives him.
Never asked for anything.
Who will stay as the dominoes fall, when gravity whens, and swallows us all?
I found myself a reluctant king.

These walls are caving in,
And all the light departs from darkness as the heavens rescind.
That’s how it begins.
What if I’ll never be the same again?
It’s when the pain sets in.
Fever burns and fingers blistered to the touch of my skin.
It’s all the same to me.
There’s no relief, only destiny.

Don’t mistake a want for a need or compliance for peace.
In the struggle it brings, things exist that we can’t see.
Don’t misplace your faith in your dreams,
when they rip at the seams you just have to believe: it’s not the end of everything.
