lyrics

nights draw in and i stifle. there's ether in the air. calluses wav on my finger tips. another evening spent biding my time, alone peeking from darkened windows. crowds pass in time lapse to and fro. fallen off of the world, so the story goes. the burden of knowing. christ, you should hear yourself. physician, heal yourself. nights draw in with bloodshot stare. there's panic on the wind. horizons that narrow slowly. leaden with fear between flashing signs. shore up the walls, til i'm paralysed. sequestered away from the prying eyes. the rapture is coming. gather round, trading favourite lines. drinking as light fades on memorial signs. to absent friends, to absent thoughts. to peace in our time, the ending of war. raise a glass to the future we've made. the march of progress, walk unafraid. this ink's putting holes in my hands. the death of my cynicism was never planned. the buzz in my ears has me losing my mind. that i could spend so long being so blind. this is the calm before the storm. take up your bed and walk. this is the calm before the storm. take up your bed and walk
