lyrics

Every night I have to trick sleep to come inside and
if I can't then it coincides with subdued chimes behind my eyes.
Am I really doing this again?
And at what point do I tell my friends to watch my back?

Have I stretched myself too thin?
Like a tightrope dragged across the crater of the volcano of my fits.
Hold my breath while waiting for it to erupt.

I can't see your eyes,
cause every time I try to they seem to look right through you as you look through my eyes.
What's on your mind?

Every time I hear about your spinning mind, the broken glass it leaves behind and that website I feel it too.
I want to believe in things like you.
I want to believe in anything like I used to.

But you've stretched yourself too thin and you're connecting dots like some constellation that projects only in your room.
Applying meaning to your incongruous truths.

I can't see your eyes,
Cause every time I try to, they seem to look right through you as you look through my eyes.
What's on your mind?
