A Thousand Julys

lyrics

Finger frozen triggers, breathing down our necks
Red eyes in the distance, it’s a delicate balance
A delicate balance

Rotten like a sickness, and pulling out our teeth
As children play the difference, chasing our last breath
Chasing our last breath

Chorus:

(If you want me I’ll be waiting...the time will pass and fade)
I can never tell if I’m invisible
Or if I just look like everyone else
(If you want me I’ll be waiting...the time will pass and fade)
Harbor socket life can be so miserable
If you’re just out of reach of the secrets of the salt
(If you want me I’ll be waiting...the time will pass and fade)

Only time can cure you, a rope or shattered glass
Caught beyond an instant, it’s a dangerous moment
A dangerous moment

Shrieking through the silence, falling through the ice
Children play the difference, it’s a delicate balance
A delicate balance

Repeat Chorus

End Chorus:

(If you want me I’ll be waiting...the time will pass and fade)
I can never tell if I’m invisible
Or if i just look like everyone else
(If you want me I’ll be waiting...the time will pass and fade)
I’ve never been the king of anything
But you can name me the prince of bad timing
(Watch the light as it is fading...the days will end the same)
