Leave the City

  • I'm tired
    Of tending to this fire
    I've used up all I've collected
    I have singed my hands
    It's glowing
    Embers barely showing
    Proof of life in the shadows
    Dancing on my plans

    They know that it's almost
    They know that it's almost over
    They know that it's almost
    They know that it's almost over

    The burning
    Is so low it's concerning
    'Cause they know that when it goes out
    It's a glorious gone
    It's only time before they show me
    Why no one ever comes back
    With details from beyond

    They know that it's almost
    They know that it's almost over
    They know that it's almost
    They know that it's almost over
    They know
    They know that it's almost over
    They know
    They know that it's almost over
    They know
    They know
    They know

    In time, I will leave the city
    For now, I will stay alive
    In time, I will leave the city
    For now, I will stay alive
    In time, I will leave the city
    For now, I will stay alive
    In time, I will leave the city
    For now, I will stay alive

    They know that it's almost
    They know that it's almost over
    They know that it's almost
    They know that it's almost over
    They know
    They know

    Last year
    I needed change of pace
    Couldn't take the pace of change
    Moving hastily
    But this year
    Though I'm far from home
    In TRENCH I'm not alone
    These faces facing me

    They know
    They know
    What I mean Writer/s: Tyler Joseph
