Did you see a pattern, were the walls taking shape?
Did you see that one coming, were you frozen in place?
Was it all that they promised, these signals that bend?
These currents so vital, to burn our mistakes
Do I stop trying, if it starts to make sense?
As they just keep fighting until the last one lies dead
And if you were an ocean, I’d have no one to thank
For all these opinions and a tongue that won’t shake
All that I am, these words I have thrown
This air I have swam in, I owe this to you
After you’re gone, how do I breathe again?
After you’re gone, gone from here
