lyrics

Nothing has changed here.
No seasons, no names.
You can cry all you want;
your tears won’t turn into rain.
Every last word
you left hanging on
ties to the shadow of things already gone.

Because the sidewalks
don’t take you where you need to be
and the lowest you’ll get is right next to me.

Nothing is broken.
No system, no bones.
You can hold up your head,
pack up your things and go home.
Every winter
I hang my head low
and sit with the things
I can’t bring myself to let go.

Because the sidewalks
don’t take you where you need to be
and the lowest you’ll get Is right next to me.

I said the sidewalks
won’t take you where you want to go
And all that you have’s all you need to know

No

Nothing to see here
You’ll see for yourself
The dying it takes, living your life on a shelf
Nothing is wrong dear
Thicken your blood stream
They will shake you awake
Say go home kid,
you had too much to dream
