- LyricsWe're only young and naive still
We require certain skill
The mood it changes like the wind
Hard to control when it begins
The bittersweet between my teeth
All the lights go down as I crawl into the spaces
Fight, flight or the screams
Life tearing at the seams
- LyricsI can’t begin to explain
How we disassemble
The parts and frame
Maybe it’s the same late morning?
The same no-show?
Run, whirlwind run
Further and further away
Into the sun
In 20 minutes
- LyricsWhen the daylight comes
Do you feel it?
Leave your bag of bones
Underneath your bed
Everything is as
