Black Holes

Album: Mallory Knox (2018)
  • [Verse 1]
    I rarely have a night where my mind’s not running
    I'm slipping into cracks falling into big black holes
    Another day alone is another night dreaming
    Of breaking off the chain just to break the cycle

    [Pre-Chorus]
    On three, we'll let it go
    We can walk down that line and regain control

    [Chorus]
    Why'd you think you know me?
    I'm better off alone

    [Verse 2]
    I'm tired of reading words that are void of meaning
    We'd be better off falling into a black hole
    It's the sign of the times when your brain needs fixing
    Stop living on the edge to escape your shadow

    [Pre-Chorus]
    On three, could we let it go?
    We can walk down that line and regain control

    [Chorus]
    Why'd you think you know me?
    I'm better off alone
    Why'd you think you know me?
    I'm better off alone

    [Bridge]
    So get a grip and dry your eyes
    You're not the only one awake at night
    There are many more with heavy minds I know
    Because you fall apart so easily
    But you're sleeping with the enemy
    So grow a spine and cut your teeth and get gone

    [Chorus]
    Why'd you think you know me?
    I'm better off alone
    I need some time to get it right before I lose it
