lyrics

I’m not sleeping well these days
my head keeps grinding on and on
my head’s all full of you
pills and bottles leave a haze
my breath keeps scraping in and out
my chest is full of you

when my bones are aching
eyes are heavy like the curtain that came down
right after our show
my resolve is breaking
every sleepless night is pushing in the only
direction I know

and I’ve been building things
just to burn them down
just to get my head clear
I’ve been making something out of nothing
just to tear it down
to tire me out enough to get my head clear

and I’m not tired
I’m not worn down
and though I’ve tried
I can’t lie down
and my poor mind
it won’t slow down
my heart’s on fire
I can’t lie down

My life’s a daydream
imagination throwing shapes and figures
they’re always the same
they’ll take your curves and angles
imitate your grace and wonder
something I can’t tame

I’m running out of ways to occupy myself
the devil’s making work for idle hands
and every time I feel a little pleasure
it reminds me how I felt when we held hands

and I’ve been building things
just to burn them down
just to get my head clear
I’ve been making something out of nothing
just to tear it down
to tire me out enough to get my head clear

and I’m not tired
I’m not worn down
and though I’ve tried
I can’t lie down
and my poor mind
it won’t slow down
my heart’s on fire
I can’t lie down
