about

These words kind of just came out (with some help from Jack Lewis). It's a mixture of phrases that sounded good and imagery I liked. So honestly I'm not completely sure what it's about. Taking a stab at it though: sometimes the platitudes people give you don't help, but sometimes you have to keep telling them to yourself. And you have to keep moving on.

lyrics

I'd love to help you
But I'm not about to
Let it go
A blinded statue
With all the weight you
Hang about your pretty bones

I've been hesitant to testify

But it's been days
Since I felt like myself
We've been feeling
Nothing else
I know I'm not alone
But recently that's not
Keeping me afloat
Days are creeping
like the dawn
Like the sun
knew all along
That I would find
some kind of clarity
We're moving on

I find it hard though
To see the world so
Black and white
With a haunted halo
You'll find a way though
Every inch of you would rather hide

That's not going to fly, no
I've been hesitant to testify

And it's been days
Since I felt like myself
We've been feeling
Something else
I know I'm not alone
But recently that's not
Keeping me afloat
Days are creeping
like the dawn
Like the sun
knew all along
That I will find
some kind of clarity
We're moving on

It's been days
Since I felt like myself
I've been feeling
Nothing else
I know I'm not alone
But recently that's not
Keeping me afloat
Days are creeping
like the dawn
I've been barely hanging on
But I will find
some kind of clarity
We're moving on
