Lyrics
All the possibilities
Things you can pick up and look beneath
Just watch your step
Don't fall between the blanks in your memories

There's an anchor sinking in the sound
Of a sense of lack that follows you around
Years went by but I know
It don't matter what you think of me

I'm awake, don't let me go back to sleep
Like a fugitive who just quit running
You found out there's no escape

Some mistakes can't be undone
It'll never be like it was
And wishing for it only makes it worse

There's some demons waiting down South
Some kind of confederate ghost that holds me close
Shows me the way to go until I'm sure I'm lost

I built a workshop to find myself
Where I can dig in the corners climbing spider webs
It's a Polaroid cemetery of every look you've ever given me

I'm awake, don't let me go back to sleep
Like a fugitive who just quit running
You found out there's no escape

Some mistakes can't be undone
It'll never be like it was
And wishing for it only makes it worse

Keep on writing to capture a feeling
It's an outline of a real connection
Treat your desires as what they are
Imposter's and a lonely invitation

Some mistakes can't be undone
It'll never be like it was
And wishing for it only makes it worse
