lyrics

i tried to leave this place behind a little too quickly
now i'm trapped in it
and to kill this sickness means
rebuilding a burned down house
with its same bricks
familiarity is a dangerous gimmick
but i'll settle in
and pull the covers over my head
to try and recognize my own breathing

oh, how strange it is to touch
the ceilings of places where we were used up

this weight just sticks to me
like sweat-soaked sheets
after waking up
from screaming in my sleep
i was so eager to
be rid of all this negativity
i didn't stop to think
that it might have been good for me
with my eyes watering
i'm pulling out hope
as i untie the knot
in the back of my throat

oh, how strange it is to touch
the ceilings of places where we were used up
this vacancy sign just won't go away
this shell is a home but it wants to be empty

with my two hands
i'll do the best i can
and i've learned to accept existing
without forgiveness
from my body
