lyrics

Overthinking again about the things you said
'Till your words break into letters, floating up my mind
I try hard to make sense of everything, glue them back together
But my head's a mess, the moment is lost, and so am I.

The wider I open my eyes, the darker this world turns.
And i can't seem to get them shut tight again,
Even when i lay down to rest can't help to think how good it burns
My dreams are burning red

But for now, let's take comfort in the fact we didn't yet become what we hate the most
And if that's right, if there are still some wars to fight, then we might as well hang around a bit more

And if we find enough rope where all our heads could swing together
Finally true to ourselves and the ones who came before
On the top of a tree, no hierarchy, smiling to eternity
Together and free, for good

The horror we may not live
To see the walls fall from between us
Between us and the world for which these songs cry out

But for now, let's take comfort in the fact we aren't yet what we ought to become.
And if that's right, if there are still some wars to fight, then we might as well hang around a bit more

Cause maybe we have a long way to go but we're surely not where we started

And if that's not something to drink to, why drink anyway
And if that isn't something to live for, why not to die today
I'm tired of being let down and pissed,I hope we find a way
If life has no more meaning than these chords well for me that's okay.

And if that's not enough reason to breath, why are you still breathing?
