lyrics

My body's broken down without making a sound.
So if you don't see me around, well, you will know where I've gone to.
I just want to stand up straight but it seems like I can't take the weight.
Frustration, confusion, and ache paint a pathetic portrait.

You'll stand still forever, holding water in your hands.
As it slips through your fingers understand:

The only use I have for hope is hoping that I don't need it.

But tides change, clouds fall as rain, cliffs will crumble to the sea.
So maybe now it's time for me to embrace that I'm fragile.
Inside that terrifying thought I just can't help but laugh,
Every movement may well be my last maybe it doesn't matter.

You'll stand still forever, holding water in your hands.
As it slips through your fingers understand:

The only use I have for hope is hoping that I don't need it.
