Lyrics

The story is common

So plain we pass by often

All motion defeated

By endless what-if questions

Obvious, we own it

Our anxious scars and bruises

Heavy hands swing slowly

With weight of our own choosing, now…

We know but can’t believe it’s easy as it sounds

We know but always told, "If we let go, we drown"

Thirsty for comfort

Too proud to ask for answers

Libraries of suggestion

The loudest voice is hidden

Obvious, so simple

Action makes for removal

Heavy heart, bad posture

Collapse and falling under, now…

We know but can’t believe it’s easy as it sounds

We know but always told, "If we let go, we drown"

You feel the tide is rising

That water’s cold as hell

Think enemies surround you

Everyone, except yourself

Your condition

Fake direction is no protection
