lyrics

days are numbered, scarcely few squares remaining
i know should move but i sit staring
at the disappearing sun

light penetrates the gloom, burning slowly
i am not alone but i am stranded
in this skin that holds me

a cell without a solid wall reining it in
could spill over like a waterfall into an endless ocean
all together, up and over the dam
the glass will fall and shatter and scatter the sand
scatter the sand

everything i love is gone
it died before the break of dawn
now i'm lying in a state of near
suspended animation

but underneath a starry sky
i'm wondering if i could try again
and summoning the strength to just start
going through the motions

the magical in the mundane
it's a miracle we never name
invisible until it turns into a resurrection

now i'm running at the break of dawn
though i'm tired and the night is long
i'm waiting for the sun to crawl back over the horizon
