lyrics

Feels like I’m running in place
Can’t see the start or the end
Slow motion sets up the pace
My legs are glued and cannot bend
I picture your face
All the details I invent
While I’m suspended in space
Your features I can’t comprehend

Happiness is a place that you often forget
Like driving back to your parents’ house for holidays
If I said there weren’t times that had garnered regret
Well I’d be out of my mind

Pick up my minimum wage
It’s getting hard to pretend
I’ll be ok if I save
I make believe that I won’t spend
If my apartment’s a stage
Then all my bills are a trench
I dig my daring escape
And scrape away to pay the rent

Transience is a state you can never expect
Like waiting for a train that’s already been twice delayed
If I said there weren’t times that were hard to accept
Well I’d be out of my mind,
And I don’t think that I’d mind.

I dance on edges of blades
I toe the line to defend
You haven’t seen me for days
I fake that I don’t need a friend
I make up lies that I’m great
Although I always intend
To play my favorite charade
It’s lost and don’t know where it went.

Happiness is a place that you often forget
Like driving back to your parents’ house for holidays
If I said there weren’t times that had garnered regret
Well I’d be out of my mind,
And I don’t think that I’d mind.
