lyrics

The forest is a dream you had
When you were young, ignorant
The forest is a dream you had
When you were young, desperate

Leaves shake their nervous hands
And branches point their bony fingers
Everywhere, a blue haze
Is closing in, it calmly lingers
And every step, the wind calls
Hushed voice, faint whispers
Shadows pace like wild dogs
Heavy breath of ghosts

I HAVE NEVER FELT MORE LOST!
This is the fear inside the calming lies
I mutter while I’m awake

The forest is a dream I’ve had
Over and over again
And every time I think I’m fine
I end up back where it all began

LOST! SCARED!
TIRED! SHATTERED!
I’VE HAD ENOUGH!

Yellow eyes are watching you all night
A wolf beyond the timberline

(I’m running from myself, I’m running out of time
I’m running from the prospect of an ordinary life
They’re watching me destruct. They’re watching me implode
They’re watching me collapse into a black hole
And no, this is not permanent. No, this isn’t fate
It’s the fear inside the calming lies I mutter while I’m awake
I can’t take it)
