lyrics

Take that first step.
Feel each weight
of every callus that you've claimed
from every jagged rock you've stepped on.

And when each step gets hard to take,
the Earth below us keeps on spinning just the same.
Breaks you down like the dust that we came from
(That sits upon the shelf)

If we only knew and if we only cared enough.

When you talked about that hole inside your chest,
we've adopted yours, but bigger.
Bleed these memories of simpler times dry.

When you found yourself alone in your head,
how I wish we could've been there.
That's what happens when you put enough poison in your veins.

Oh, how I wish we could've stayed.

Bound to your skin and bones are aging chains.
You wear them draped around your neck,
and they grow only longer.

And with each link, more heavy than the last, we sink
into the stubborn Earth below.
Breaks you down, like the dust that we came from
(That sits upon the shelf)

And if we only knew, and if we only cared enough.

When you talked about that hole inside your chest,
we've adopted yours, but bigger.
Bleed these memories of simpler times dry.

When you found yourself alone in your head,
how I wish we could've been there.
That's what happens when you put enough poison in your veins, man.

Oh how I wish we could've stayed just one more summer in that place.
