lyrics

Push Hard and Swallow

And you fall asleep, yes, you fall asleep, you fall asleep while you're winning.

And why did we fall asleep at the signs that love's not enough to get by?
It's floating like dots in our eyes, forever escaping our mind.
Breaking our will to survive, and leaving in tatters our lives.
There's no turning back back from the skies that crash 'round our ears like a tide.

All we want's some truth. Lay bare our minds to the truth. Naked and trembling before the truth.
It's not much to ask for the truth. Like we're not somehow broken the truth. There's no point in waiting the truth. We're already broken the truth.

And you fall asleep, yes, you fall asleep, you fall asleep while you're winning.

Time runs faster than light when you're blind to the cracks that age leaves on the lines.
You're not so much happy as tired, to the warp of the whens and the whys.
Lies whispered in dreams deep at night, keep us all safe from the fires
The comforts you grip tight in hand, fall through the fingers like sand.

All we want's some truth. Lay bare our minds to the truth. Naked and trembling before the truth.
Like we're not somehow broken the truth. It's not much to ask for the truth. There's no point in waiting the truth. Push hard and swallow the truth.
