lyrics

I am not the man I once aspired to be
But I live with that just like I live with everything
A false smile to cover half my face from those who revel in righteousness
And a shadow of myself to hide all of the rest
The splits, the breaks
The tremors and shakes
Grasp like a hand
They swallow the land

Inscription hear me as the depths
Are drawing near to me they're all that I can see
And when I held my breath and closed my eyes
For a moment it felt like home

The world is a smaller place than when I was young
But I still can’t seem to figure it out
It makes less sense now than it did then somehow
And my conscience has turned inside out
My conscience has burned out

But I love regression like I love myself:
On again and off again and at all of the worst times,
In again and out again like I’ve been left behind

I can’t be happy that it’s over, just sorry that it ever happened

Inscription hear me as the depths
Are drawing near to me they're all that I can see
And when I held my breath and closed my eyes
For a moment it felt like home

Take me home

This is farewell
This is farewell

My story may end here
The road may disappear
But all is not lost if we bear the cost
But all is not lost if we bear the cost
