Lyrics

[Verse 1]

Hung up here on a web of comfort

Taking off with nowhere to go

Standing tall with your new cloak armor

Making out like it's all been done

[Pre-Chorus]

It's harder than it seems

You slip but never fall

[Chorus]

They'll take you, where you won't come back to me

They'll take you, where you won't come back to me

[Verse 2]

Tearing down what we built up so well

Laying low as you came my way

Look alive with your head on backwards

Going off when there's nothing wrong

[Pre-Chorus]

It's only in your dreams

But it felt like it was real

[Chorus]

They'll take you, where you won't come back to me

They'll take you, where you won't come back to me

[Verse 3]

Hang loose, my friend

Don't walk away from me

'Cause I really think you're cool

Is it worth turning back despite these open hands?

You're tearing me apart

[Chorus]

They'll take you, where you won't come back to me

They'll take you, where you won't come back to me

They'll take you, where you won't come back to me

(You need to find yourself)

They'll take you, where you won't come back to me

(You need to find yourself)
