lyrics

When the lights come up, they cue me from the aisle
As the camera moves over the audience
Before it settles on me for a rote, teleprompted speech
But my idiot brain just cannot speak the words to save us all:

"The Fear will never leave, we were happy losing sleep,
We were happy losing sleep
The Fear will never leave, we were happy losing sleep,
from the balcony to concrete"

I lit a cigarette with ashes from your breath
And the city contracts in the drawing of a shade
The evening slips away in parasols and rain
All the water and blood I have siphoned from deeper wells
So where the water meets the land I'll bury my feet
And wait for the waves to cover me
Because every drop I steal is another horizon swell
And the city will rise on a tidal crest of words
To cure us all

"The Fear will never leave, we were happy losing sleep,
We were happy losing sleep
The Fear will never leave, we were happy losing sleep,
from the balcony to concrete"
