lyrics

wasted two months scratching noise on a page
telling yourself you had things left to say
promised to no one the time'd be well spent
six tiny words spoken in vain
and no one knows

missed plans pass you by in each calendar slot
your epitaph spelled as each x marks the spot
last cries of things left alive only in name
that part of you forever lost
but no one knows

so rest your head, and sleep
when morning comes, you'll start again
rest your head, and sleep
well now the morning's here

burned every bridge i built
scratched out every mark they ever said was mine
i've long since forgot what page they wrote us on
the words are fading fast, so let's burn it all down
i know i should write home
but i can't seem to find myself inside a pen the way i used to
on the damp ground i knelt
and dug myself a shallow grave to stay

searching through trash to retrace your own steps
just ashes of old selves discarded too fast
no money left for the return trip back home
so find a new place where you'll last
where no one knows

so rest your head, and sleep
when morning comes, you'll start again
