A slow decay
All around advancing entropy
Exposing apple cores and planting seeds
A generation stakes its claim

One rolls away
To abandon moss and apathy
To embrace the pull of gravity
Live a life outside of shade

All I ever wanted was a place where I could stay
When examined from up close the mountain would seem far away
It’s there the thoughts inside my head would match the surrounding space
And I’d feel safe

A fire escape
An exit sign that shines eternally
A way of life in an emergency
And this city is burning

All I ever wanted was a road to carry me
Far from blind tradition and predictability
My bones have grown eyes have been shown a new world that before me

So I must leave
So I must leave
So I must leave

Now I face my body east and begin running
I’m climbing over peaks and through vast valleys
I never wanted peace it never let me live

I'll fight this civil war that’s inside of me I’ll run from shore to shore fleeing apathy
I’ll never fall asleep I never will give in

I'll face my body east and begin running
I’m climbing over peaks and through vast valleys
I never wanted peace it never let me live
