lyrics

dove in the heart of a new city
searching for new ways to think, to feel
a new place to find some clarity

brushed by small hopes wandering the streets
eyes prying for small truths between the lines
with such unnatural urgency

it’s becoming clear though, i don’t belong
on this path i’ve followed far too long

rearview mirror mocks my ignoble smiles
such aspirations boiling below
every interaction tried and untrue

return home to festering denials
leaving behind hopes dreamed up in sunlight
exposed as ersatz under the moon

on this path i’ve followed for far too long
it’s apparent to me now, i’ll never belong
a new beginning ends, yet nothing has changed
but these ruminous roadblocks on every highway

so it’s left unsaid
search: incomplete
great hopes collapse
and admit defeat

that world’s not me now
just a memory
a lone echo, begging
for unity
