Life at the bottom of a well in the middle of the ocean
I'll make anything you need, digging heels in the sand, walking miles in the heat. I've got one knotted rope and a long way to climb.
Seems everything I create I just want to destroy, seems every sound we make just turns into noise. It's like losing a piece of your sweet sanity to the letters you never could send.
Light disappearing past the curve will never turn around and thank you, it will never ever look back. Growing through an open cage, every cell that I let fly lives another one's life.
In another one's life all the locks have changed - all the keys to these doors, all the code that I author, all the characters I write...
So run the engine to the ground. Shut your eyes in the dark.
Try to give it a new name.
It's like songs in an empty home.
