Drop all these words,
They fall on deaf ears
(Drop all these words)

(All the times you've felt the ground decay

and wished the earth would take you too)

To keep a world inside your head,
(Know there's a line a mile long who'd gladly take the plunge with you.)
We'll mark an X on the horizon
(And watch what dreams we have come true)

So pick a spot in the distance and put all this behind you
Don't look back at the past,
It will catch up (It will catch up)
And it will drown you (It will drown you)
No more afraid when the whole world is sinking,
You're finally ready to swim

(Fragile is this sense of disbelief I find in you.)
If you can pull the weakest string,
(The tightest threads can come undone.)
Unraveled in my thoughts where you can't see.
(Pulled apart now before me and I cant seem to find the end)


So pick a spot in the distance and put all this behind you
Don't look back at the past,
It will catch up (It will catch up)
And it will drown you (And it will drown you)
No more afraid when the whole world is sinking,
You're finally ready to swim

I'm watching that place now in the corner of your mouth
Where a smile slowly creeps, but you won't let it out.

(Your Eyes, it hides in your eyes)
It hides in your eyes,
Knowing what they have seen.
In the way that they shine.
Reflecting all that has been.
