lyrics

And so the same old wind rips through the low, thick fog
In the alleyways where we fought like dogs
The last to drop was the last to lose

And then history became a deja vu
And repeats itself like some rotten food
Wipe your mouth, there's so much work to do

So I turn a phrase so smug and smart
A second coat upon some timid art
Each day leaves cracks how quickly it can fade

And though the branch was high above the swirling ground
I was a stoic stare and a mumbling mouth
"I cannot...
I cannot be afraid".

Here comes that headrush
Here comes that falling down

Get some air before it's all gone
And put our faith into a ticking clock
Time is selfish, like the god it is

It was a simple night with the distant stars
And we near forgot with our heavy hearts
That we are part, yeah, we are part of this

And with a cold handshake and a fearsome grin
There's a bottom line and a sprint to win
They help themselves and get by without friends

So smile a smile for the photograph
Because it all adds up in the aftermaths
Time and time and time and time again

Here comes that headrush
Here comes that falling down

So I turn a phrase so smug and smart
A second coat upon some timid art
Each day leaves cracks how quickly it could fade

And though the branch was high above the swirling ground
I was a stoic stare and a mumbling mouth
"I cannot...
I cannot be afraid".
