These quills will jolt and penetrate
Some pass while others can’t relate
I stood hopelessly myself
You hate when it gets this close
And I know the blank look you put on
Like some concertino wire
In here I try to change my life
I hit the same wall every time

The night accelerates
When you need it most
I am a satellite - And a holy ghost
The mind is a battlefield
But the heart is a surgeon
And I am between them
And I am uncertain

I try to know you but I’m too late
Some guy told you how you’re no good
So now you’re gonna prove him right
We’re all trauma all the time
And I ought to charge you by the hour
For all the time I think on you
I caught you plotting my demise
I thought I ought to help you try

The night accelerates
When you need it most
I am a satellite – to your holy ghost
The mind is the enemy
But the heart is an anchor
Why can’t you find me
I’ve never been closer

What if the life you tried to live
Was diametrically opposed
To what everyone agrees
Is good enough for most
And I’m tired of always being right
And risking everything on you
You’re never there when I get home
You watch then you turn me off

The night accelerates
When you need it most
And I am a color test – in a field of ghosts
The mind is a battlefield
But the heart is a surgeon
And we are between them
And we are uncertain
