lyrics

I felt weight
I felt the dread
Of burdened shoulders and a
Heavy head

I sought escape
I sought relief
I got impatient and I got ratty

In brave new worlds
Keep my feet upon the floor
And help me to feel rich when I'm poor
The guides to help me, navigate these
Turns and bends, these finest of friends
That a man could dream

I felt fallen like I wouldn't get up again
I was empty yeah I couldn't dream and then
You picked me up, from my knees
You saw the gaps and then filled the space in between

Help me layer and thicken up my skin
Give me a mind for dreaming
And help to me to interrogate the words
To conjugate the verbs, yeah derive some meaning

Widen my eyes, I'm strapped in tight
These little butterflies are ready for first flight
I won't cross that line no I'll dance over in spite
And you'll see more of me, now I'm in the light

It's the words that will never need be told
But they keep me from the biting cold
I feel that roof, above my head
Help me to be happy when the sun has set
