Telescope

Album: Melophobia (2013)
  • In a far and distant galaxy
    Inside my telescope I see
    A pair of eyes look back at me
    He walks and talks and looks like me
    Sits around inside his house
    From room to room he moves about
    Fills his life with pointless things
    And wonders how it all turns out

    Do do do do do
    Do do do do do
    Safe to say that

    I don't think you understand
    There's nowhere left to turn
    Walls keep breaking

    Time is like a leaf in the wind
    Either it's time worth spent
    Or time I've wasted
    Don't waste it

    Afraid of what the truth might bring
    He locks his doors and never leaves
    Desperately searching for signs
    To terrify, to find a thing
    He battens all the hatches down
    And wonders why he hears no sounds
    Frantically searching his dreams
    He wonders what it's all about

    Do do do do do
    Do do do do do
    Safe to say that

    I don't think you understand
    There's nowhere left to turn
    Walls keep breaking

    Time is like a leaf in the wind
    Either it's time worth spent
    Or time I've wasted

    Clearing my mind,
    Losing my friends
    Follow my fears
    Do it again
    You say how, do, you do
    Man, how 'bout you?
    Man, how 'bout you?
    To be free
    To be son
    To be killed
    To be saved
    In my head, I'm alone
    I'm un-dead, I'm ashamed
    Just like you, I've been tryin'
    To be scared
    In my bones, I feel cold
    I give this to the lord in the sea
    In this street
    Let me go
    Let me be, I don't need
    To be here, I'm alone
    Can't you see? Can't you see?

    I don't think you understand
    There's nowhere left to turn
    Walls keep breaking

    Time is like a leaf in the wind
    Either it's time worth spent
    Or time I've wasted
    Don't waste it Writer/s: BRAD SHULTZ, DANIEL TICHENOR, JARED CHAMPION, LINCOLN PARISH, MATT SHULTZ
