We can count the times when lovers turn to foes Like it’s the only thing we know And when the lights go out, we want to search for all that glows But in the dark, we battle the lows We search for the fiction of closure In an era that’s already over The skin we’re in gets chilled when the cold wind whistles and blows But the isolation, it grows The face we wear as we seek solace in peaceful repose Is never as true as it shows We search for the fiction of closure In an era that’s already over And I’ll pretend that I can breathe in this very moment Even knowing that your voice could break the spell Our truths collide and choke the air of our mutual silence Holding back the words we’d never tell We search for the fiction of closure In an era that’s already over

I’ve been stealing breaths and borrowing time A question lingering, yearning to know why How it must feel nice to be needed How it must feel nice just to be needed Relish the memories before becoming an afterthought This is the pain, the pinch, that reality brought We hang on words that breathe the emptiest rhetoric And we find no substantial way that we could even better it I’ve been stealing breaths and borrowing time A question lingering, yearning to know why How it must feel nice to be needed How it must feel nice just to be needed There is a hollow statue where a man once stood We followed all the steps, oh, but we misunderstood Seize the day, but it seems the day struck first To reveal the myths of the ones well versed I’ve been stealing breaths and borrowing time A question lingering, yearning to know why How it must feel nice to be needed How it must feel nice just to be needed I am the name that has lost its touch Just more of the same, of which we had seen too much How it must feel nice to be needed How it must feel nice just to be needed How it must feel nice to be needed How it must feel nice just to be needed

Moonbeams 03:14
I can hardly stand the thought of this taking over For it’s consuming everything And in my mind, I wish this road would lead us back to safety Upon the ground you’re worshiping When you tell me that it’s over All I’m left with is this dream Which is slowly fading to a blur It’s disappearing with moonbeams What is real and what is fake are circling in the twilight Holding hands and dancing free And in its wake, we find the ruins of our own destruction With bated breath, on bended knee When you tell me that it’s over All I’m left with is this dream Which is slowly fading to a blur It’s disappearing with moonbeams Sacred images of silence Stories that we came to believe The epitome of pretense And of stolen memories When you tell me that it’s over All I’m left with is this dream Which is slowly fading to a blur It’s disappearing with moonbeams

He said, “Hey man, what’s the problem?” I said, “Sir, I wish I knew “There’s a darkness that still follows “And on certain days, it renews” And some claim to have the answers For a small price, just for you And their lavish lives will tell us That they have found the truth But they’re just like you And so I have more questions than answers And what future can I hold onto When I cannot run from myself Can I at least run to you? Can I at least run to you?
