LOTD: Lyricollage

you can ask about it
but nobody knows the way
no bread crumb trail
to follow through your days
it takes an axe sometimes or feather
in the sunshine and bad weather
it’s a matterĀ of getting deeper in
any way you can


i don’t wanna run
just overwhelm me
i want pent up
i want unsettled
rattle cage after cage
until my blood boils


Everyone’s looking, everyone hides
Everyone’s telling everyone lies
We’re changing the subject and turning away
Away from the heart of it all

You say you are happy, do you think this is fun?
It’s only a firefly to the light of the sun
You say this is living, you feel so alive
Well, you know everything dies

Welcome to another day
It don’t seem that different ’cause nothing has changed
Try to remember, try to remember
When we were just running in place

Reasons for living never come cheap
And even your best ones can put me to sleep
What I am saying, or trying to say
Is that there must be a better way

Tell me all your wildest dreams
You don’t really care, you don’t know what they mean
Raiding the closets with skeleton keys
You know it’s easier than you think

Even my wonder, even my fear
Only amount to a couple of tears
There is a rhythm, it’s near and it’s far
It flows through the heart of us

Reasons for living are all very fine
Leaving me cold though they’re not really mine
Did you ever find out, did you ever find out
What’s at the heart of us?
I don’t know, I don’t know
