lyrics

You run for cover like an animal in peril
And dissociate to disappear completely
In a purgatorial prison you’ve created
You fire off a flare and whisper
“Come release me.”

Hollow
Swallow
And I’ll be there when you wake back up again

You’re shaking crazy like you’re holding a live wire
We’ll be sending out a search party to reach you
They’re probing every fold on your cerebral cortex
For some hazard that you must have fallen into

Hollow
Swallow
And I’ll be there when you wake back up again

You seldom speak about the life you lived in limbo
like a soldier coming home never acknowledging the nightmares
But I’ve seen your patchwork quilt of scars that hang like stars
Who’s constellations tell the stories of the wars you waged in past lives


But I know
The road bends toward home
And drags us along
Like gravity
But oh, we fought for too long
Until time wore us down
And we woke up where we belong

When conversation turns to conquest
We lock eyes and you tell lies of never having had a stomach for the chaos
But your coat of arms collecting dust against the corner does betray the truth we both know is too painful to reflect on

But I know
The road bends toward home
And drags us along
Like gravity
But oh, we fought for too long
Until time wore us down
And we woke up where we belong
