lyrics

Our hands are the machines
And our bodies figurines
I'm taking all my pieces back
From all of the places where I
Left myself behind

And our eyes light up the night
With our voices sounding bright
Although we don't know who is listening
It's nice to be heard when we've got something to say

Look at how the landscape rolls out
And trains can look like towns
That follow you to catch you when you fall
And look at how the small words we've had
Have taught us what the silence means
When nobody is scared
Although we feel unprepared
For what's to come

Our wounds are on the mend
Our joints begin to bend
Although we know we that we could be running fast
It's nice to be still and let moments come our way

Look at how the landscape rolls out
And trains can look like towns
That follow you to catch you when you fall
And look at how the small words we've had
Have taught us what the silence means
When nobody is scared
Although we feel unprepared
For what's to come

Look at how the landscape rolls out
And trains can look like towns
That follow you to catch you when you fall
And look at how the small words we've had
Have taught us what the silence means
When nobody is scared
Although we feel unprepared
For what's to come

Look at how the lightning bugs
Are never where you saw them lighting up
And how the trees are all in lines
As if inviting us to run
We're on the fire escape
Escaping from the fires of our families
And the wind is whispering in our ears
That we will never die
We will never die
