lyrics

in a dream i'm in our room
the peeling paint
the leaking roof
that crumbling ruin
that we called home
we shake ourselves until we fall
in the yard the grass is tall
somewhere we hear our father call
but when the morning light woke the birds
we had no more use for words

now every night i lay awake
and dream about the great escape
over the walls and past the gate
silent like a fox in the night

try and quiet my pounding heart
this dumb contrivance is a work of art
its only wisdom when to stop and start
when to bend when to break

i dismantle every bridge i cross
i'm letting go of all that i lost
once i paced a moonlit kitchen floor
not anymore not anymore

though i have had to trade myself
subjugate and jade myself
i don't kid myself into thinking i
can every really leave the past behind
and every hour that i'm awake
i'll dream about the great escape
over the walls and past the gate
silent like a fox in the night
