These fists seem strong don't they
they've moved the ground and kept us safe
but they are crumbling, my fingers numbing
I'm not reaching out I'm pushing you away
please trust it's for your well being
I don't want you here when I come down
so no words are spoken
with my eyes wide open
froze in disbelief ready to be found

These hands look strong don't they
they used to hold the world
then It slipped away, I couldn't quite keep it
and nothing isn't blurred
I left my life and my family
like a coward or a hack
now regret hates me
it's fear that saved me
it took the mountains in its path

Put another rock in my hand
help me throw it at me
it's all my fault
throw them all at me

These arms look strong don't they
they used to keep it all
then they stopped working, I had to give up
I closed my eyes and began to fall
I ran, my motives were safety
this stone face all wet with tears
now I have failed here
my hearts impaled dear
I'll wear these scars for all my years

These hands look strong don't they
they hold my head and what's inside
I've tried to train them to stop the shaking
but they won't listen to these lies
there's something out there I promise
it's coming for all of us
and it is evil, and I have seen it
it'll spoil life and devour trust
it's bad when I close them
worse with my eyes open
I see it if I sleep
so I keep my mind blank
and think of bravery
change and hope but I'm so weak
please take me in like I'm family
I've been out for far too long
my stone hearts aching
but I am changing
stay by me, leave me alone

Put another rock in my hand
help me throw it at me
to build this wall
and separate me
