Collapse

lyrics

Gray morning
Set out on my path
A beach of broken glass
A barefoot mile to last
I’m overboard without a raft
A torn sail on a mast
An ocean made of trash

Do you ever feel you don’t deserve this?
The pressures of the world that put us further from our purpose
None of this is real, it’s all impermanent
Have we forgotten how to live?
I wish I could turn off

Let’s get lost, and watch reality collapse
Erase our thoughts and lay our hearts out like a map, a map

Feels like I’m molded out of wax
I dead drop through your grasp
Until there’s nothing to subtract
We’re simply caught up in the act
Inventing what we lack
We fake it ‘til we can’t anymore

Do you ever feel you have no purpose?
An animal at heart, we’re prone to fight, and so we’re driven by these urges
A lonely sense of calm upon the surface
Have we forgotten how to live?
Why can’t I make it stop?

Let’s get lost, and watch reality collapse
Erase our thoughts and lay our hearts out like a map

You haunt me like a ghost, I only want you back
Collapse, collapse
