Is everybody coming undone she asked me with a straight face, at times it’s hard to tell the truth.
When all I know, all I know, is we’re all trying to stay afloat, it’s the way it is, it’s just the way it is.

Feels like I’ve got to get away, like there’s got to be a better way, ‘cause when you’ve got to get out, you’ve got to get out. And promises where I swear that I am fine are getting harder to keep and getting harder to believe.

I should be old enough by now to stop pulling at my hair and tearing at my skin because we’re so young, it feels like we’re so young.

Is everybody coming undone she asked me with a straight face, at times it’s hard to tell the truth.
When all I know, all I know, is we’re all trying to stay afloat, it’s the way it is, it’s just the way it is.

The cranes hang quietly tonight, as if to remind us that this is home,
and that this is how we live now, with no backup plan or way out.

But from here I can see it all, every false step that I made and how I let chip away
at the foundations that I am set upon as I stood by again.

But we are nothing without resilience. Because we’re all tied up in our own ways.
And worse come to worst, I fail in everything, we pick up the broken pieces, we put them all back together again.

Is everybody coming undone she asked me with a straight face, at times it’s hard to tell the truth.
When all I know, all I know, is we’re all trying to stay afloat, we’ll stay afloat, we’ll stay afloat.
