It's fading in much faster now
Souls in need of a little turnaround
I need a recess, I need an interlude
Of this waiting... this breathing room

So in focus, so in tune
But too misled to be excused
To hide behind a weak defense of this bitter taste
I left upon your lenient mind
Quickly turning into spite
I am paralyzed in shame
To yield the way I was today

But in this waning light there's no mysteries, no enigmas
No entangling webs wrapped around this idle time
It comes in like a flood, no debates, no vain suspicions
It's when the day retires, what remains, what's been denied

Oh, denied

So in focus, so in tune
But too misplaced to be removed
My ambitions never leave much room to think about these things
Of all my wasted aptitude
And my aimless, blind pursuits
My intentions never leave much room for me
Much less for you

But in this waning light there's no mysteries, no enigmas
No entangling webs wrapped around this idle time
It comes in like a flood, no debates, no vain suspicions
It's when the day retires, what remains, what's been denied

My angel brings to me a waterfall
For tonight I am consumed
She faces east, praying the sun will calm
Her restless heart confused
I am aware, but show no concern
It only feeds this disarray
I am aware
I am afraid
For I am changed

(I am aware, but show no concern, it only feeds this disarray)
I am changed
(I am aware, but show no concern, it only feeds this disarray)
I am changed
(I am aware, but show no concern, it only feeds this disarray)
(I am aware, but show no concern)
I am changed
(I am aware, but show no concern, it only feeds this disarray)
(I am aware, but show no concern)

Of this waiting
This breathing room

    Song MeaningBest song off the Bend album; one of my favourite albums ever...

    My mom and I interpret this song as post-relationship boredom. Like, you're alone and nothing really seems to be fun anymore. The end of the song represents realization that this challenge of getting over an ex will make you stronger in the end.
