I haven’t felt estranged in a long time
It’s a path that I’ve been denying
Cry yourself to sleep in the moonlight
Rock-a-bye but babe you’re not dying
It’s an empty sea—full of misery,
Still it keeps you afloat while you’re drowning.
I wake asleep in the sunshine
Full of clouded ideas unwinding
Fall back to sleep in the daylight
Then it’s nightmares before I start trying
There’s a crowd to see—full of history,
They’re the ones who no longer will buy in.
And their chattering—causes you to bleed,
From the blue lines you keep on supplying.
It’s one way to go—it’s the life you know,
And it’s become as boring as breathing.
I haven’t wanted to stay here
It’s a place that I left for a reason
Through your tears I can see clear
And what’s left is simply this feeling
I could lie to you—tell you I’m a fool,
But I’m sorry has lost all its meaning.
It’ll be ok—in another day,
When you see me again I’ll be different.
I’m the fools gold you tried to believe in,
I bite down just so I start believing.
