It is morning and you're stirring and I'm
Running
Through the sunrise, and the mountains
And the hope that this deep silent evening will
Swell again
Breathe again
Rise up again, just to
eat you alive or
asleep
Or take you over and take you
Down.

And I'm moving through this
Silence
but it passes me by and it only reaches
You
And you're gone
and you're moving,
you're everything
Breathing and writhing and shivering
Inside of me
Taking me over
And taking me down
As I am still
and I am gone
And I am still gone, somewhere
Deep inside of you

And it scares me
to stand here
When time slows down to a crawl
And it drags on its knees
And I'm falling on my knees and I am
Doing backflips underwater
And you've already woken, I can almost no longer
Remember
The way that it feels to wake up wide awake.

And tired, and I'm running and I'm
Fading, I am
Fed up
With this city
And the way that it will not stop
Breaking my heart.
