When Are We Waking Up?

Album: Asymmetry (2014)
  • Tainted memories are all I have to live with now you're gone
    And I won't sleep tonight
    No I won't dream at all about days I've spent alone

    And the words cut like a knife back when you said those words to me
    I spent many days rebuilding broken bones
    And our ghosts live in the hallway where they play inside my mind
    And they lead me down the roads we used to go, woah

    So don't hold me darling
    I see the time go round when it's all been said and done
    I don't think you're lying alone
    And my head keeps spinning at the thought of the past with these memories built on stone
    I don't think you're lying alone

    So run home, hide yourself beneath the sheets and lay alone
    Or quiver inside and hear the walls fall down as we break all we used to know
    Well I can't wait here any longer the ground is waiting to eat me whole
    You weren't the one who needed saving turns out it was me all along

    So don't hold me darling
    I see the time go round when it's all been said and done
    I don't think you're lying alone
    And my head keeps spinning at the thought of the past with these memories built on stone
    I don't think you're lying alone

    When are we waking up? When are we waking up?
    When are we waking up? When are we waking up alone?
    When are we waking up? When are we waking up?
    When are we waking up? When are we waking up alone?

    So don't hold me darling
    I see the time go round when it's all been said and done
    I don't think you're lying alone
    And my head keeps spinning at the thought of the past with these memories built on stone
    I don't think you're lying alone

    When are we waking up? When are we waking up?
    When are we waking up? When are we waking up alone?
    When are we waking up? When are we waking up?
    When are we waking up? When are we waking up alone? Writer/s: David Rawling, James Gillett, Joe Savins, Michael Chapman, Samuel Douglas
