Rabbit Down the Hole

Album: Afraid of Heights (2016)
  • Buried in the mail before the early morning
    Under the frost that's forming his words are calling
    Even though alarm bells ring without a warning
    All of the clocks keep ticking, and time keeps flowing

    Everyone that I hold dearly, I try to keep them close
    'Cause some of them get bitten by the rabbit down the hole
    Once they walk past through the grass, they're never coming home

    Easy to live but yet so hard to nail
    Maybe they've lost their way but found their savior
    Living in the fable life's a fairy tale
    Except our thoughts are fragile our minds are frail

    Everyone that you hold dearly, you try to keep them close
    'Cause some of them get bitten by that rabbit down the hole
    And once you walk past through the grass, you're never coming home

    Good God what have I done?
    Mother nature's lonely son
    Mother nature's lonely son
    Chase that rabbit down the hole

    Wander through the open door that leads to nowhere
    Who's gonna take away my pain, take away my pain
    Before you know you're trapped inside the spider's web
    You're screaming there is no escape, there is no escape

    The invitation's written clearly, you're the one he chose
    Until the day your bitten by the rabbit down the hole
    Follow his procession deep into the ground below

    Good God what have I done?
    Mother nature's lonely son
    Mother nature's lonely son
    Chase that rabbit down the hole
    I'll drown or I will burn
    Down the path of no return
    Down the path of no return
    Chase that rabbit down the hole
    Rabbit down the hole

    I'd never thought I'd see her suffer, I gave her all I could
    And everything I had to offer, was never understood
    How many days until her mind has left this world for good?

    Good God what have I done?
    Mother nature's lonely son
    Mother nature's lonely son
    Chase that rabbit down the hole
    I'll drown or I will burn
    Down the path of no return
    Down the path of no return
    Chase that rabbit down the hole

    One of these days you'll break away
    One of these days you'll break away
    One of these days you'll break away
    One of these days you'll fade away (Chase that rabbit down the hole)

    One of these days you'll break away
    One of these days you'll break away
    One of these days you'll break away (Chase that rabbit down the hole)
    One of these days you'll fade away

    One of these days you'll break away
    One of these days you'll break away
    One of these days you'll break away
    One of these days you'll fade away (Chase that rabbit down the hole)

    One of these days you'll break away
    One of these days you'll break away
    One of these days you'll break away
    One of these days you'll fade away Writer/s: AARON SOLOWONIUK, BEN KOWALEWICZ, IAN D'SA, JON GALLANT
