lyrics

Propped up by a hazy brain
you feel the way you did again and
now it's all washed away, all washed away
I must confess it went that way
Like I was acting on a stage
born out of clay and mud and rage
with a backdrop overlaid, disparity
a slight delay

Feeling severed from your age and writing letters to a page
until it's all gone away, it's gone away
has it gone away
Things you use to get to rest are only ever gonna test you
but you know it now, but you know it now
so you know it now

Next thing I'm lying in that space again
oh, if I'd have seen me then
I don't know where he likes to put it
and at the time I think just screw it
Cause I was acting on a stage
born out of clay and mud and rage
with a backdrop overlaid, disparity
a slight delay

Feeling severed from your age and writing letters to a page
until it's all gone away, it's gone away
has it gone away
Things you use to get to rest are only ever gonna test you
but you know it now, but you know it now
so you know it now

(I just pretend and pretend)
that I found rest, lay my head on pillow's chest
that I found it, found it and would die for it
(I just pretend and pretend)
I'm a lawyer, baker, collector
I'm a boy and I never would hurt her
anemoia, twirling in a round skirt
I'm a boy and I never would hurt her
(I just pretend and pretend)
that I'm anything, anything but something
I'm the rough tide, crouching on a hillside
that I'm anything

Feeling severed from your age and writing letters to a page
until it's all gone away, it's gone away
has it gone away
Things you use to get to rest are only ever gonna test you
but you know it now, but you know it now
so you know it now
