I can’t settle down
With the cracking sound of broken bonds still ringing in my head
Laughter stops, stomach knots
No one wins the mountain top
The steel gets tired of the rust and folds
Never in control, never in control, never in control
History does not disappear or get old

Let me get this straight
It’s all around and written off as a life expense
Nothing can come in between
I will not pretend
Where I am and where I’ve been
I will not pretend that everything is permanent

Nineteen, twenty-tree, twenty-five
Twenty-nine and feeling fine
Trying not to shake the kid
Holding on underneath for dear life
The quiet whispers close to my ears are getting hard to hear
Drowned out by the sound, drowned out by the sound
Drowned out by the sound
And lights of nice, quiet, normal, successful life

Let me get this straight
It’s all around and written off as a life expense
Nothing can come in between
I will not pretend
What I love and who I am
I will not pretend that everything is permanent
Permanent

I couldn’t finish what I started
It scared the shit out of me
I couldn’t finish what I started
Observing history
I couldn’t finish what I started
I couldn't finish what I started
I couldn't finish what I started
I couldn't finish what I started
