lyrics

my kitchen smells of grapefruits and bleach
i stand there on my blistering feet
and i try and i try
to forget all the lies that i tell myself to survive.

my mother's house is miles away
i know that i'll go back there someday
but she has a guest who'll send me away
if i try to make her understand.

there's a world out there and it's mine oh it's mine
i know i can catch it, make it shine
but in order to do so my self i must sacrifice
to know what's real.

i peer and peel back layers so deep
the dark, the dank layers of deceit
and i try and i try
to forget all the times that i've needed them to survive.

i've had twenty-one houses and so many names
i've forgotten the order of years, months and days
but i think i must carry on living this way
if i want to stay alive.

there's a sky up there and it's high oh it's high
i know i can reach it, it's mine oh it's mine
but in order to do so my self i must sacrifice
and never feel.

my heart is made of stone
my mind acts only when i'm alone
my feet don't know how to follow a road
but they dance their own path.
my eyes are tired and deep
it's been a thousand years since i could sleep
i don't know how to sit here and weep
but i still know how to laugh.

there's a world out there and it's mine oh it's mine
i know i can catch it, make it shine
but in order to do so my self i must sacrifice
there's a sky up there and it's high oh it's high
i know i can reach it, it's mine oh it's mine
and i guess my self i'll just have to find
somewhere along the way.
