lyrics

soften your eyes as you pass by on the street
your eagle’s glare will burn a hole through every gaze you meet

look up from those pages that you read
the fantasy is comforting, but it’s not the life you’re living

but if you were bored of reading then you wouldn’t live alone

loosen your jaw, i know you clench it when you think
you spend the day so wound up without even realizing

then say something if only to exist
you don’t speak unless you’re spoken to, your silence is your death

but if you had wanted company you wouldn’t live alone

rise, young blood
rise, you shouldn’t be gone so long
if anybody would ever ask, you’d answer softly
“i’m fine”

open your eyes, i know you close them you sing
if the light’s too bright, we’ll turn it down but you have to ask for it

then forget the audience, there’s only me
you mean nothing to no one until they’ve watched you fall asleep

but if you had craved attention, then you wouldn’t live alone

rise, young blood
rise, you shouldn’t be gone so long
if anybody would ever ask, you’d answer softly
“i’m fine”

[turn down the heat to keep down the cost
break all the lights so you can live in the dark
couldn’t be any worse than before
you shouldn’t be gone so long]

you have run too far to quit these last few feet
i’m more content to take a while, don’t wait for me
