lyrics

If we changed everything at least we tried
Frozen landscape of the mind
No reflection
Frozen mind
If we change everything at least we tried
Switch your conscience to the other side
I'm out of steps not out of time
Everything seems plausible when the old is left behind
What is left seems possible
A wretched piece of mind

Close your eyes
You’re not angry
Closed mind
I can stand up
Breathe again
Close your eyes
You’re not angry
You’ve closed your mind
I can stand up
Breathe again
Closed mind
You cannot see
You’re a variable
Fighting all the time
Predict at your cost
What lies ahead
You don’t have control
Over those that you obey
When one good day is
Too much to expect

I tried to run away
I ran for years not for miles
A skeletal complex of this point in time

Close your eyes
You’re not angry
You closed your mind
I can stand up
Breathe again
Closed Mind

I used to close my eyes just to see
Opened up my eyes
This isn’t me

Burnt the bridge
Light the torch
I wanna be there
Light it up
Tear it down
I wanna be there

When your heart goes the other way
Eyes have given up

Unable to open these clenched fists
When your heart gives up

If we changed everything at least we tried
As the flame closes in
The water fills my lungs
Frozen landscape of the mind
No reflection. Frozen mind
As the flame closes in
The water fills my lungs
No reflection
Frozen mind

Morning feels like evening
Evening feels like death
Feels like death

Detached from what is real
Emotions but a word others
Are afraid to utter

World turned negative
World turned to fear
Fear of no escape
No escape from this

A notion resonates through thick through thin
I tried to compensate
I can never win
This is out of step

Walking laboured
We search for reasons to blame it all on someone else

Tired, twitching but you don't see
Lying, reeling but you don't see

I don’t like the way things change
For better or for worse

We cannot see this disease
A selfish act is all they see
He suffers with his nerves
Is this what we deserve

Close your eyes
You’re not angry
Closed mind
You're not angry
I can stand up
Breathe again
Closed mind

A place where we can barely crawl
To a place where we are still on top
Still staring at defeat
Feels good but it’s not real

Feels like death
I opened that door and took that fucking step

I tried to run away
I ran for years not for miles
A skeletal complex of this point in time

When one good day is too much to expect
I’m the one you reject
A difference of pace
I still count the days

Wash them down
Please let me drown
It burns, please let me burn

We search for reasons to blame it all on someone else
Walking laboured
We’re out of step
Out of step
You never listened, you never listened
From the start

I tried to runaway
I ran for years not miles
Now I'm out of time

If we changed everything at least we tried
Frozen landscape of the mind
No reflection
Frozen mind
