lyrics

Under a stairwell inside of a dream,
hanging on me like lights on trees.
Rain in the summer, fell through the heat.
Days were like hours, months like weeks.

I came around, jingled my keys.
Watched for cops and checked my teeth.
Collapsed in the bathroom and slept on the floor.
Mentioned nothing of this to anyone I know.

Saying everything I want to hear you say.
Shine only for me.
Constantly reaching
Chasing a feeling
Crawl up the steps to me
Burn all your sins away.

Constantly reaching
All of these deep dreams
Always

Walk like men on Death Row do
Following my every move.
A straight line, to the end of life.
I can't see the end or when the lights turn on.
Squeeze the trigger slow, let it be a surprise.

There was a war here, that face can't lie.
Into a hallway, between two beams,
Smiling like children and giddy like thieves,
Stealing moments
Removing time
Shifting creation to be by my side.
Fought without reason
Belief without sight
You opened the door on this purple life.

Walk like men on Death Row do
Following my every move.
A straight line, to the end of life.
I can't see the end or when the lights turn on.
Squeeze the trigger slow, let it be a surprise.
