bones will break so faith will shake
turns out all i wanted was
some peace of mind, a stretch of time
a place where i can rest my head
sick with age and you share my pain
turns out all i wanted was
the string untied, to lose then find
the meaning of the turbulence

i can leave but the room’ll stay
it never cared either way
what’s a choice without an end
i never knew where it went
knots are tied and the edges fray
i never cared either way
what’s a choice without an end
i never knew what it meant

bones will break so faith will shake
turns out all i wanted was
some peace of mind, a stretch of time
a place where i can rest my head
what’s a choice without an end
i knew never what it meant

waiting for the string to unwind
to run my finger through
what a tangled mess it is, i see it now
now’s the time to rest you said
you’ve done enough
(but where did it go)
with such clarity i see
i haven’t done that much
(but what do i know)
can’t i see i’m waiting most my life
but i was never you
what a tangled mess we are, i see it now
now’s the time to rest you said
you’ve done enough
(but where did it go)
with such clarity i see
i haven’t done that much
(but what do i know)

i’ll hide you beneath the floorboards
bury you in an old shoe box, in the backyard
i’ll hide you beneath the floorboards
bury you in an old shoe box, in the backyard

i forget you’re beneath the floorboards, i lose such track of time
i’m just a fraction of a world, indifferent to your plight
when i pulled up the floorboards, what did i expect to find
there is nothing left to see, when i question this life

won’t you just disappear anyway
won’t you just disappear anyway
we were so important to so few, i run my finger through
(now’s the time to rest, you said, you’ve done enough)
we were so important to so few, i run my finger through
(now’s the time to rest, you said, you’ve done enough)

bones will ache forget my name
remember there’s no such thing as fate
(i’ll take my chances though, i’ll take my chances though)
i’m not afraid just sick with age
remember to sit and wait
(just like my old man now, just like my old man now)
i’ll waste a life i’ll wait my turn
whatever’s left does not concern
(with each passing day, each day i’m less afraid)
afraid i can’t just toy with time
i know now what i have is mine
(nothing will ease this pain, nothing will ease this pain)

and now i’m resting my soul, i’m resting my mind
