lyrics

Destruction sounds like rain
Hissing in liquid whispers
Laughter can sound like pain
When you’re going nowhere

Derision in their eyes
Cast down on all beneath them
A thin, grotesque disguise
That’s fooling no one

Each new indignity
A penance for existence
You crave stability
When you’re going nowhere

CHORUS
But there’s a light that shines for me
That’s always barely out of reach
That lovingly guides my way home
A distant candle sheds its bloom
A balefire burning through the gloom
Reminding me I’m not alone

Tied in an endless knot
The days hard to distinguish
Collapse is all you’ve got
When you’re going nowhere

Exhaustion in my bones
Dragging a heavy anchor
It feels like you’re alone
When you’re going nowhere

CHORUS
But there’s a light that shines for me
That’s always barely out of reach
That lovingly guides my way home
A distant candle sheds its bloom
A balefire burning through the gloom
Reminding me I’m not alone



Bloodless monotony
Cycles of repetition
You’ll sell your autonomy
When you’re going nowhere

The clock a callous thief
Its face a grim reminder
The time that’s left is brief
When you’re going nowhere

CHORUS
But there’s a light that shines for me
That’s always barely out of reach
That lovingly guides my way home
A distant candle sheds its bloom
A balefire burning through the gloom
Reminding me I’m not alone
