lyrics

Let the lights go out
Do your best thinking when asleep
But it’s the dreams you fear the most
Wind them up and watch them go
not intended for the weak

And you’re sensing mutiny

So you find the will to speak
All the same patterns of speech
comfort in the sound
Your audience awaits
But you no longer trust the words
That occupy your mouth

They’re waiting for you now
You’re waiting for the fear

No more space between the sidewalks
There’s nowhere else for you to go
But to stumble on shut doors
No way this fight is fair
Blurry eyes and aching bones

Maybe you’re better off alone
No one to witness your defeat

But now you’re calling out
To fight for better odds
The lonely matching up
There’s nothing that’s so strange
You’re not the only one
At least that’s what you tell yourself
You’re just glad the weekends over
And you know it’s not ideal


They’re waiting for you now
And you’re waiting for the fear
