lyrics

my hands are shaking, anxiety is such a lonely word
my chest, it trembles with every breath I take
we'll be safe if we stay right here x2
like children in a sandbox
they're singing us to sleep
with their hands over our mouths
making promises we can't keep
follow me through the smoke
and I'll lead us to the light
or leave me here in the dark
just kiss me goodnight
she ran from the sand as the stars sang
a constellation opens it's mouth and sang like a trumpet
the fabric of shadows has formed a window
silhouettes of a whale, bright lights casting shadows
we're just kids in a sandbox with wide eyes broadcasting fear
she's entranced in the light, as the stars sang
take her from the light, leave them in the sand
now she's gone, and we're alive
did she just disappear, or did she die?
where are we now? where is the sky?
and then I awoke from a great flash of light
it was the sun
she drew her sword and tore holes in the sky
and then covered my eyes so I could sleep at night
I am finally awake. I can see the light
she drew her sword and traced lines in her wrists
who would ever have thought she'd end her life like this?
now she's finally awake, she can finally see the light
