Album: The Color Before the Sun (2015)
  • I walk so tired, so opaque
    Use words too many, I can
    Share our cultures casualty
    Can't see the forest from the trees

    You laugh at the time that came and went
    Those boast from the east sky resting
    Oh, the nostalgia we retract
    The now was ours but the then we can't get back

    And when the world comes crashing down
    Don't make a move, don't make a sound
    Just watch it fall, watch it come down
    Feel it as it goes, does it feel good to let go

    I lost myself along the way
    Restless nights mixed with purposeless days

    Counting forward taking steps
    To a better man, the one you can't live with

    And when the world comes crashing down
    Don't make a move, don't make a sound
    Just watch it fall, watch it come down
    Feel it as it goes, does it feel good to let go

    Full of color, all she's made up
    Melancholy, wait, you count her scars
    Her scars

    Full of color, all she's made up
    Melancholy, weeks to count her scars
    Count the scars

    And when the world comes crashing down
    Don't make a move, don't make a sound
    Just watch it fall, watch it come down
    Feel it as it goes, does it feel good to let go

    And when the world comes crashing down
    Don't make a move, don't make a sound
    Just watch it fall, watch it come down
    Feel it as it goes, does it feel good to let goWriter/s: Claudio Sanchez
