Roads Unfold

from The Dawn Chorus by Despite Everything

lyrics

We are burning the air that we choke on

Feeding the fire with expired ideals

Breathe out, breathe in

This winter smells like gasoline

We’ve blended with grey walls 
and painted them black to stand out

We’ve fallen for fake calls

Watch us all burn out.

We are underachievers with blackened lungs too young to die

Our clocks are ticking backwards

We slack on borrowed time.

I am empty inside, while roads unfold at night

I am at my ropes end and I, I don’t know where to turn

Day out, day in

This winter smells like gasoline

We’ve blended with grey walls
and painted them black to stand out

We’ve fallen for fake calls
Watch us all burn out.

We are underachievers with blackened lungs too young to die

Our clocks are ticking backwards

We slack on borrowed time.

Half hearted, I lie awake most of these days

Singing along to songs we’ve all heard before

Sipping my nights away, humming songs

that were supposed to change the world.
