I don't like artificial light
But I use it every night
No other way to see
No, the day won't stay for me
And when the lights go out
Memory gets me around
As I wander through the dark
But I can't get very far
And once again I find
I'm no good at being blind
And the light of every day
Can never be replaced

Don't mistake the true for the fake,
A raft for an island,
Asleep for awake.
There are so many ways to evade
What's right in front of your face.

If there's a way
I'd rather not remain
So lost in disarray
My brain a battlefield
Of the wounded and the healed
And as my reach is short
These hands could use support
To climb out of the trench
I keep on falling in

Don't mistake the true for the fake,
A raft for an island,
Asleep for awake.
There are so many ways to evade
What's right in front of your face.

Drink you in, but I still thirst
Not the answer I thought you were
Always said, what's it worth?
Not an anchor, only words.

Drink you in, but I still thirst
Not the answer I thought you were
Always said, what's it worth?
Not an anchor, only words.
