lyrics

bird-flown nests that only reflect
headphone soundtracks powering
my own tree trunk legs down a road
that's headed to nowhere i know the

june sun flaps like wings in the wind
makes fun of all my beads of sweat
and unwittingly fills my head
with ideas to turn and go back again

just because you let this go
doesn't make you a deserter
you don't have to lose all hope
to become someone deserving
of a full and joyful life, it's okay, no

don't think
there's just one change that i need
only then will i be complete
there's no such thing

don't think
you're beholden to one thin string
there's a freedom in unravelling
and the cast away

william wallace did lose his head
one london august twenty third
they called home to say he was dead
at that point he'd done all he could, and i

hope it's not too forward to say
considering your particular case
it's probably not too late for a start
at living the life that you want

and a healthy fear of the unknown
doesn't make you a bad searcher
til now you've gone quite far all alone
but take my hand and go further
the horizon is what makes the sun move

don't think
there's just one change that i need
only then will i be complete
there's no such thing

don't think
you're beholden to one thin string
there's a freedom in unravelling
and the cast away

you don't need
big letters for your name
spill your heart in invisible ink
and the message will stay

don't think
there's some distant delivery
if it happens then i'll be happy
so i'll just wait

cause you might
be on hold for your whole damn life
there's just now
there's no other time
