It's so selfish to say "We won't be found out a alike."
I hope you've a good place to hide.
Someone will find you.
No one should have to live with this much stress,
killing yourself, trying to live. (And it remains)

And it remains the only meaningful mistake
but you won't let go, you don't know how to.
And every morning I begin my dreams when i'm awake
every bird sounds a reminder
You're not awake at all.

In the most unusual of ways
It comes without summoning
You have no choice in it.
I don't think it's selfish to say
"This doesn't matter."
I can see it running through his veins
We're in the kingdom
(and it remains)

And it remains the only thing you can't explain
but you never know, it's better not to
And every morning there's a meaningful mistake
every bird sounds a reminder
You're not awake at all.

We must allow, we must allow to settle a trade
Now that I see, now that I see it run through your head

And it remains the only thing you can't explain
but you won't let go, you don't know how to.
And every morning there's a meaningful mistake
You're not awake at all
You're not awake at all.

    General Comment"Wrote this for Colin [Frangicetto, guitar] when we were writing our second album, I was trying to let him know that he was taking shit way too seriously and that I loved him. The song also has a lot of themes about being deprived of sleep and restlessness, which we were both suffering from at the time." -Anthony Green
