Falling asleep or staying awake
either way i'm waiting for you
it's never enough it's never enough
there's always a chance that we might break
this floor is so old, I fell in a hole
half way out, do you see me now?
My feet below, the ocean below
I can look right through, right through -

I stayed up too late the pages are worn
of this book I'll never give to you
it's the saddest story i've ever seen,
it's beautiful
you're holding your stomach looking away
don't look right through me
it will be all right it'll be ok
I just know, I just do -

I'm always tired, I'm always tired
you know it's true
even when I think i'm awake I might be dreaming
I think I should lie down
I turn my cheek away from the sun
there's something we must do
Let's rip this house to pieces, board by board
I think we're ready for something new.
