lyrics

The grocery list
Hangs below my ears
Apples and oranges weigh me down
Like trapped pigeons wanting to fly

I hear them screaming
Clawing to get out of my mind
If it's not safe in here
It’s where I disappear

I try to shake the present emptiness of being anywhere but here
It’s where I get churned out and remodeled as a worser part of me
It’s where I disappear

Chewing lips and pulling hair
I make lists in my head
Get me through the day just so you won’t see
That’s where you’ll find me safely tucked away behind
The twisted folds of space
Before I leave this place

I try to shake the present emptiness of being anywhere but here
It's where...

I’m not gonna stop the words falling out of my mouth
It’s a verse I have yet to rehearse
