lyrics

the world ceases to exist
just beyond the reaches of my headlights
and tonight i am the only one

once we were invincible
driving around with our eyes closed
all heart and sandstone

at night the shadows come alive
and they are vandals stealing all that we have
as the sun goes down the ruins crack and crumble
houses heave their final breath

time takes from the young and old
maybe i’m wasting mine
spending my nights foggy eyed crying
with the room spinning dark around


i need to slow down
last night i dreamt that i had died
and everything faded to black
as my body sank into the earth
i could feel you pulling me
from above
you are always saving me
no one saves me like you
