lyrics

You stand in the doorway
with nothing to say
You’re tired,
and I’m worn out.

You sit on the bed
head in your hands, again
Stifling the air, but then
You’ve come a long way down
You’ll figure it out

A long way, long way down,
but you’re still here.

You’re picking up slack
say you wanna find your way back
Caught in a trap with no returns

You shout in your sleep
how could anybody want to do that to me
You’ve come a long way, long way down
You’ll figure it out

A long way, long way down
but you’re still here

The essence and the meaning of the motion
still fits betwixt the reasonings of the way we are
The fallen eye, the holy eye
embedded in the universe

I know because
I’ve fallen down and I’ve fallen hard
The best you can do is to find what is right for you

That’s when you pick yourself up
and brush yourself off
and find something to believe in
somehow to live again.

The essence and the meaning of the motion
still fits betwixt the reasonings of the way we are
The fallen eye, the holy eye
embedded in the Universe
The Universe, found in the human world.
