my eyelids float
between two states
on the borderline
flows a slow intake
they don't let much in
i don't let much out
just a broken bulb
flickering with doubt

yeah it happens all the time

misery loves me
but i don't love her
it's a one way street
circling planet earth
if i take a right
maybe i'll outrun
to the great unknown
goes the great no one

yeah it happens all the time

wanna move, i do
trying to get this right
but i'm losing the appetite
it's not the way i'd choose
always caught in between
the ache and the apathy

if there is a record
for most hours wasted
least worthy reason
to cry on a thursday evening
i'm in the lead

staring up at the stars at night
i know their light is so behind the times
the more i live in the world i find
seclusion's pleasing is an illusion
