lyrics

The night keeps rolling in
it whispers in my brain
telling me
things
i am believing
like i should disappear
nobody would even notice
if i went missing
'cause my body's just ONE number
in a long line of something
in no time we
will all be forgotten
like stories said yesterday
in anger and fear
they are still
there
lurking in my memory
knowing that i feel their stings

like wind against my tears
they still feel the way
the earth is cracked and crying
like sorrow in my skin
thats wounded but drying

But, I wake up with air
I never have to wonder
if she's there
'cause i breathe her
I wake up with air
she swirls and she stares
and for a moment
she will spare
my desolation.

The dust is calling
wants me to return to it
from ashes i was born
meant to be a phoenix
but the colors of my plumage
i've never seen them blooming
and i wonder if it's late or
to never come at all
when i fall i fall
'cause i only fake my flight
so when you look out the window
it doesn't look like i am flailing
i'm nothing
i am nothing
i am nothing...

But, I wake up with air
I never have to wonder
if she's there
'cause i breathe her
I wake up with air
she swirls and she stares
and for a moment
she will spare
my desolation.
