lyrics

I don't wanna be here, my friend
Can't bear to struggle through to the end
But it will be a while 'til we're both here again
Regretting this time ill spent

Help take a little weight from your mind
Skin shedding, all left out to try
If we're all newborns why aren't we prepared to cry
Or maybe we are and I'm just blind

So I'll walk this road
Back to the very source
To see how it begins

The faces etched in my brain
Sandstone worn down to the grain
The palette's smooth these days, but every time it rains I grow more distant, eyes glazed

Hang on to the notes in my words
All the melodies I wish I'd heard
In three years all my photos will be burnt
But I won't be here that much I've learnt

So I'll walk this road
Back to the very source
And I'll lose my way
I can't be saved

Every time I close my eyes
The notes I'd taken begin to fall from their lines
To my friends and family, you need not take care of me
Let me float away, I'll be alright

I don't wanna lay here, my friend
Can't bear to struggle through to the end
But I'm not something that you'd want to defend
I'm just another crack in a lens
