lyrics

Without dreams, we are only sleeping

I just don’t know which to believe
you or this self doubt tugging at my sleeve
but you’re armed with your green eyes eager to deceive
when everyone else comes and goes as they please

but I’m falling fast, more then I can tell
deep in the dark, my confidence fell
and I traded my dreams for a good nights sleep
don’t write me off until I take this leap
tonight

I believe in myself but I’m easily fooled
gulliable and trusting – yeah, I’m all of that too
do you think your exceptional? well l’m sure that it’s true
but the world is impatient when it decides to crush you

and which way is up? I can’t always tell
deep in the dark, my confidence fell
and I traded my dreams for a good nights sleep
don’t write me off until I take this leap
tonight

tonight
the planes are flying low
rattlling frames on the walls below
it’s quarter past four and I’m drowning

air swells with the threat of rain
dampens sheets and weather vanes
inside my heart is pounding

ignite our dreams in kerosene
from suburban nighttime quarantine
I’m shadowboxing with ghosts and regrets

like dandilions in the wind
torn apart to begin again
I’ll watch them drown in the sweat I spill
this burden of creativity
lacerates all sympathy
and without dreams we are only sleeping
