lyrics

Digging up main street - closed all day.
Moral high ground - more hole than clay.
A lonely figure - din and boom
lost inside a head - old familiar tunes.

Keep your distance - don’t engage.
Resistance futile - all the rage.
Sweet things you steal as some kind of joke
have a habit of sticking in the throat.

Wrapped tight - harshest night of the year.
Eye to eye - blatant lies - more faith than fear.
Whistle blowers whistling in the wind.
Foundations on floodplains fail in the end.

Not war buddies - not best mates.
Wandering in wilderness - I can’t wait.
Such a tricky smile - misaligned
and always from behind.

Why do you keep running away
hiding your identity?
Sour mouth words - no sympathy.
You should hear what’s said to me.

Mind gaps, fall through cracks, stones unturned.
Teachers ignore lessons they should learn.
Not in this life - not the next one.
Sometime you’ll face what you’ve become.

Steamed up mirror - your hot air.
Bad hangover - sobering despair.
A sickening thought - lost what you need
and I believe one of them’s me.

Keep digging deeper holes.
Pride comes before big falls.
Hindsight means you’re too late.
Your nightmare unbolted the gate.
Your nightmare unbolted the gate.

Why do you keep running away?
