lyrics

Is it just me, or is it dark in here?
Who smashed the light switch
and why would you do that?
You were my only light keeping me safe.
Where did you go now, where did you go now?
Cause I'm lying, broken down.

And I just can't believe,
like a card up your sleeve
that I've arrived here
Who downed the street signs
and why would you do that?
You were my only light keeping me brave.
Where did you go now, where did you go now?

Cause I'm broken and screaming,
shouting up storms to the walls,
knocking them down like a bird who wants out
Oh, I'll fly, don't think I wont.
I'm sinking and yelling,
talking down flesh to the core,
till a man I am no more. No more.

I stood eyes wide,
mouth shut, hands out
and I'll take what you give
but not without care and a tread with caution
The bright glow dies slow
This dim room is not my home
and I sift through every word you breathe
with a wariness I hate to wield.

Cause I'm broken and screaming,
shouting up storms to the walls,
knocking them down like a bird who wants out
Oh, I'll fly.
I'm sinking and yelling,
talking down flesh to the core,
till a man I am no more. No more.

Like the sand and sea, like the sweetest child, like a danger's heed, nothing ever stays the same. I was holding up, proud my strongest stone. Now I bring it down to trace the tiny cracks of a broken home. Like a buried seed, like a frantic cry, like a vessel bleeds, nothing ever stays the same. I was standing up, this was something strong. Now I'm biting tongues and grinding teeth till I kneel alone. Like the sand and sea, like the sweetest child, like a danger's heed, nothing ever stays the same. I was holding up, proud my strongest stone. Now I bring it down to trace the tiny cracks of a broken home.
