lyrics

[Verse]
—and we will call this home
lay me down to rest
stole my heart and breath
our names carved in stone

[Chorus]

make me whole as you throw away
all the part of me like broken china
play with what’s real
conflict with another plane of being
you’re a hole in my space-time fabric
a snake in my zen garden
you scribble out my perfect little story then I —

[Verse]
is anybody home?
where you lay me down
when will you let me out?
how will you know?

[Chorus]

[Verse]
this is not a home
where you threw me down
maybe we just need some time
let me clear your mind

[Rap]
this is a letter to anonymous
you’ve intoxicated my mind and now it’s populous
teeming with the thoughts of just
rising, and escaping in this rocket ship
see i’m just glad that you let my heart exist
freely, I think you know i’d make a song of this
You’re my column sitting below my roof so I won’t fall or shift
and it’s ironic that you have been my consciousness
through all of this guess and stressing and ultimate progression
out that mental slum i pondered in
you gave a better form of confidence
for me to go and accept and run with tolerance
see i just hope it’s not the end and done and call it quits
shit i could keep on venting till my pencil’s done and carbon lead is
needed, but it’s embedded in my common sense
not to make a move but lately you’ve consumed my thoughts
and it’s just like the moonlight blocking all the stars and such
you may not call it much but what we had was something obvious

what we had was something obvious
what we had was something obvious

[Verse]

this is not a home
where you threw me down
maybe we just need some time
let me clear your mind

[Chorus]
