lyrics

Am I awake? Am I not awake?
Must be asleep, but who drove this far?
Passed out in back, waited so long (too cold).
Empty shells, dead and gone, spread on the dashboard.
Am I awake? Am I not awake?
Retain.

Language of the empty fails by design,
and I can’t understand the meaning behind
photographs and memories – they make you live a lie.
Language of our romance fails through lost time.
Photographs and memories can’t make you more alive.
Do you listen in your sleep?
When you wake up you’re moving.
The seatbelts are broken.
The windows are frozen.
Your breath melts words unspoken.
When you wake.

It’s 3am.
Fever burning.
Plane departing.
Mind warping nothing into something.

Walls (that) start to shake when you’ve slept
two hours in the last forty-eight.
Waking dream, exiting the open…
Seams (of) brainwave sheets
folding into nothing worth saving.
Stuck between, entering the closed off…

Barriers holding the line
between what we’ll say
and what we can get behind.
Barriers holding the line
between what we have done
and what we will leave behind.
I never thought about the things
that you thought about.
Now my thoughts are alone.

Stay awake.
You know it’s hard
when the motor hums to sleep.
Stay awake or go to bed.
Nightmares of going home.
You’ll never be afraid
when the seatbelt’s tight again.
