"Glass Boys" as written by and Josh Zucker Damian Abraham....
when glass turns to stone
the shine turns to coal
when fast becomes slow
glass boys
i was the source
now i'm the decay
just fading away
glass boy
if you touch me, i'll shatter
like a statue, i'm fragile
just a whisper
you could hear me if i mattered
i was wild like a wave
now i'm fixed into place
on the sand and i'm scared of the tide

where did i used to go
before i went nowhere?
what did i used to do
before i did nothing?
what did i used to have
before i had nothing?
who did i used to be
before i was no one?

pretend the kids are strange
but its me who has changed
i wish i could go back
glass boy
i'm afraid to grow up
and fuck my life up
so i just sit and turn to glass, boy
i wore out my grooves
i'm just a faded tune
not an echo boom but a whimper
i spun for too long
and now my sound is gone
you couldnt play me if you wanted

where did i used to go
before i went nowhere?
what did i used to do
before i did nothing?
what did i used to have
before i had nothing?
who did i used to be
before i was no one?

the sand fills the glass
with all the hours in the past
in the air now
for someone else to get back
a million little stones
put to fire, put to sound
make the man you see and the on you will become

theres a tunnel at the end
of the light where you will find me
theres a darkness at the end
of the night that conceals me
i'm a glass boy
i'm a glass boy
i'm so scared boy
but i'm ready
so erase me
just erase me
let me sit here
and shine

where did i used to go
before i went nowhere?
what did i used to do
before i did nothing?
what did i used to have
before i had nothing?
who did i used to be
before i was no one?
where did the time go?
