Numbers and Lines

lyrics

it's the kind of sound that sinks a hole in my head,
it comes around to take a word that you said
and explains the world for me
with numbers and lines that become a sea
of glitter and gold

I tried to lead a life of water and bread
to leave a light on where the fathers have fed
but instead I have sown the seed
that spread as a vine 'till it reached the sea
as others foretold

and it feels right
to begin
for a while
without a single thing in mind that could make the wheels run
the ticking hands
of space and time...

it's Friday night and I'm alone in my bed
the phony silence of the battery's dead
and the world has come for me
but nothing escapes from this ebbing sea
that has taken control

and it feels right
to begin
for a while
without a single thing in mind that could make the wheels run
the ticking hands
of space and time...

you got a light on the door and cracks on the floor
creeping under your skin like an old violin
the moon is high and the nights are long
but you are never really with us 'till we sing your song

... light on the door and cracks on the floor
creeping under your skin like an old violin
the world has stopped, you claimed your spot
you tear of your skin and you show them what you are made of...
