lyrics

I've been losing sleep
Burning seconds like the gears that are slipping in this timepiece
I think about what could've been
Burning over and over those days again
In my head
I cant stay worried for long
As if today hasn't already gone wrong

I see this ramshackle reality begin to fade like the shimmering horizon laid out before me
With a birds eye view of all you tin-tongued devils and mediocre men
I thought I hit the bottom again
Scared the life out of all my friends
This time reflecting the last, my future, my past
I turned this dagger against myself
Tangled up in these words from my mouth
Keep tunneling into the ground.
No idea which way is up now

Numbering your sins in the counting house, blurring all your fine lines
Getting older I'm the beholder
You can't control everything
Look into my eyes take time to craft your lie
You've grown weary and contrite I can't breathe you back to life

They say I lost my way but you can't make me stay, there's nothing left of this dream land I helped create,
I am the monster you see, I am the air you breath, I am the face in the torch light
