lyrics

I am tired and I've been stretched
In too many places at once
So I am selling my things.

My brain is screaming
and it's been spending
too many hours
swimming in distant lands.

It's all been real, it's all been a dream
A blurry whirl of lights
And I need to build a stoop
To crawl to.

Here they are, smoking on the balconies
In a valley of buildings, pulling their life from the stars
Letting the magic fall from their mouths.

Riding the beat onto the end,
Was it enough to be needed?
Was it enough to love?
Was it enough to be loved?

I drive to work in the dark
My headlights rudely
Illuminate the sleeping world.

There are clicky ticky sounds
Coming from the rooms
The hum of power buzzes underneath.

We sit in front of machines
Sit and stare and dream
Of somewhere where the colors sing.

I like to see myself not having any choices
Without choices, I've got the wind to my back.
The wind to my back.

Riding the beat onto the end,
Was it enough to be needed?
Was it enough to love?
Was it enough to be loved?
