You didn’t leave much
But nails in the wall
Where pictures of better days
Always used to fall
Nothing ever changes
And nothing ever will
It comes down to one more night
out on the windowsill


When your wars inside how do you win?
When the days go by like they always did
And nobody noticed that you’ve changed
And you keep showing up but it’s just not the same


When you’re living your life
Eight hours at a time
It isn’t very hard to leave
What you left behind
It started so young
And it ran so deep
And it all comes back
When you land on your feet

You stay up all night and it’s all you can do
When dreams just remind what they took from you
And you won’t change a thing by not letting go
At least that's what they say but you don’t want to know

And everyone told you you’d be all right
And everyone told you you would forget
But in the back of your mind it didn’t sound right
And it hasn’t happened yet

This is your war
But what are you fighting for?
And do you have the courage
To make soldiers of your words?

I’d shut my mouth for centuries
But time speaks volumes
And I’d give my whole life
Just to see you smile one last time
Your time was showing up in floods
And I’d drown to follow
But no one listens like an empty page
And that’s just fine
But why does it take a lifetime just to want to be a child?
To watch the petals of perception fall away like railroad miles
Out an open window
In an open mind
Like worlds we’ve lost to worlds we’ll never find

When we were young it all seemed forever
Now that we’re older the time just passes us by
Remember the days of those endless summers
Now that you’re gone it all means nothing
But nine weekends and five paychecks

Why keep speaking when no one’s listening
Why keep screaming when there’s no meaning
Why keep sleeping when no one’s dreaming
Why keep breathing when we’re all leaving?
