lyrics

take these blistered hands, these hands that built
this house of many dreams
dreams of places that we’d seen, moving faster than it seemed
through the smokescreen

it seems like only yesterday time would pass like a thinning smoke
your voice echoed like a fleeting ghost
and i’m afraid i’ll never see that part of me again
the child that i knew long ago, before his nightmares took control
now every night he dreams alone

if it all comes down, who will be the one to save me?
(to show me how to move on again)
if these walls cave in, how will i know whether to fight or follow them?
use the ground under our feet as a bed when we need sleep
our ringing ears and aching knees prove there’s more to this heartbeat

the air i breathe is clouded with inconsistencies
between where i am and where i want to be
every wall that i break down is just another door shut
and i’m tired of waking up to blinds like prison bars
we were made so much more than living rooms and basements
maybe i’ll just be a memory, enough to make you stop and think
but not enough to make you lose sleep like me

if it all comes down, who will be the one to save me?
(to show me how to move on again)
if these walls cave in, how will i know whether to fight or follow them?
use the ground under our feet as a bed when we need sleep
our ringing ears and aching knees prove there’s more to this heartbeat
