lyrics

I took the time that was needed
to reset and refresh
to cleanse my exhausted mind
that rested, without reason
To help bring an equation to light
that this path I've chosen
Will hurt the ones around me most
When I've let demons surround their host

You see i had to take a step back
before i knew i could come back

In pitch black winter air
you could feel a draft
when the shutter door was left
unlatched the night before
pouring in from the octagon windows
my father installed above
the cedar
burning
fireplace.

I made a promise
to the lover that I had
that I would make more progress
with one less drink in hand
if you know of a solution
please let it out
because the direction we’re headed
is coated in doubt

You see i had to take a step back
before i knew i could come back

In pitch black winter air
you could feel a draft
when the shutter door was left
unlatched the night before
pouring in from the octagon windows
my father installed above
the cedar
burning
fireplace.

Fluorescent lights
seeped into my body at night

You see i had to take a step back
before i knew i could come back home
