lyrics

I was always a boat tied to a stone
half of me sinks and the other half floats
I'm either dead certain or completely unsure
where to go
where to go
where to go anymore

you can eat up the stars and drink a full moon
march into april may into june
summer, autumn, winter woven into your hair
anyone
everyone
nobody cares

the grass stains are clean now, the laundry is done
your heart broke the mirror, the stove burnt the sun
the past in the kitchen is rotting like food
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know what to do

oh, this fake history keeps coming true

the reason that you keep breaking your own arm
the reason that you keep drinking in this bar
because midnight and daylight are too far apart
you can't change
you can't change
you can't change who you are

so your head is a jail, you're locked up in the past
you know what's behind you but you still look back
because there in the shadows there's always a place
that you're too scared
you're too scared
you're too scared to face

oh, this fake history can be erased
