lyrics

we're gone.
Lost within all of these things that we've become.
Engulfed in this facade that we cannot call our own.
Hold on to what once was; to everything that we know.
It's all wrong, it's all the same, it's all the same to me now.

The tracks in the snow have faded away, and I find myself further from where I began. It's so far to go to find contentment.

Carry me all the way down.
You're not as broken as you have led on.
The burden you are is the burden I know, and I'll take you with me as far as I go.

We're all hollow homes built on sand and broken bricks but with no
control over the fault that could swallow us whole. Now what becomes of us when we can't fend for ourselves?
I'm wrong, I'm always ashamed, I wish I could just let this go.

...And when I look down at all of my scars, who's to say who held the whip that left them all? I couldn't have known these marks would turn beautiful all on their own.

Carry me all the way down.
You're not as broken as you had led on...
--as you had led on.
--as I had led on.
I'm not as broken as I had led on
