lyrics

You can do what you love,
or what you are not afraid of.

I won't be corralled
by my regrets, anymore.

I don't want be funneled
through my life by my work.

We live a long life, and it is
scary to believe that all our dreams
could be these empty conventions,
like I keep avoiding
perfect for perfection.

And if nothing wakes me up
until the middle of the day
I could waste a lifetime dreaming
and grow old and die, just the same,
just the way I've always been

Just keep telling yourself
that you are moving on.
Just keeping seeing in yourself
the places you are from.

Give the land exactly what it asks for,
give your breath to the wind
give your back to the dirt floor
and they tell you you'll reap
tenfold whatever you sow here.

Open fields, the dark horizon
sits in wait for me.
Open fires, the violet sky
lifts the ground to swallow me.
And I can suck all the air I want
but there's no oxygen here.

Breaking down my life into the parts
I've gathered from reflection.
How am I of this town,
how did I choose my direction
One thing I know for sure is
every recollection stings.

You can't uproot yourself,
nor can you make your own
You cannot see yourself
complete without a home
you can't undo yourself,
putting memories in tombs.

Just keep telling yourself
that you are moving on.
Just keeping seeing in yourself
the places you are from.

You can do what you love
Or what you're not afraid of
