by Marathon



I wish the calm shattered down at my feet
If you don't mean what you say, then why speak?
I'm falling back to sleep
Homesick for places I've never seen
But my mind will make its way back to you
In the waking of a dream

Like a bird on a wire falling down
Smeared watercolored faces that surround
They'll speak but make no sound
Falling short of old age and took too soon
You're rowing into chrome waves and gone
'Til the color leaves the room

No, he won't come whenever I call
It's not like an ending I was talking about
Drifting you off and into the chrome waves

For 24 years, I've been lost
I'm begging you to keep me in the dark
When your wire's wearing thin
'Cause I don't wanna watch, don't wanna see
The gravel pull you under and take
what's left of you from me
