lyrics

That train, the hounds, your core—
what bellows out trying to figure out what's before?
With your head against the glass
Do you ever tend to wander out, and be gone?

Come now, the joys of kin
as the warmest sound ever heard in your lasting years
For in my family's glow
I will not be ashamed of us

I've not let go of us,
they found a way to burn through the nerve until we've never had
and they've come to speak in tones, like I have faced the facts,
when anymore I
I still wonder how it will work itself out where we're fine
and the headlights will turn through the snow in the blinds

The light shoots through the marks
like a million stars splintered out with a flash and flurr
To the specks of distant worlds
such a smallness,
life existing now
on the glass, you watch

But I've not let go of us,
they found a way to burn through the nerve until we've never had
and they've come to speak in tones, like I have faced the facts
when anymore I
I still wonder how it will work itself out where we're fine
and the headlights will turn through the snow in the blinds

You came through my room, yet you were withdrawn
How's your hope?
Do the lights lie unstrung
because it just seems wrong to ever be fine?
When the man you returned is the boy you refined

And all the days that crept into your smile
withhold from you the severance of time
And rid the town of every vacant sight
to be alone with you one more mile
