Forever In​-​Between

lyrics

I'm a lightning bolt that splits the sky
a raptor with no cry
come east and see if you're meant to be in this world.

before me it stood in all its glory
gone in the blink of an eye
can't you see? there's no place for me in this world.

when the fresh kill was parted out
you got the guts and I got the heart.
a heart full of regret, and one more failed test.

* * *

follow your dream to the end of the road
where the grass grows high
and the sky is pearly gray with the dawn.

there will be no-one there, and that's all you care to know
forever in-between, I see what you mean.

your gods are tired of you following them around
the hollow dead ring of what was once a true sound.
there will be no-one there, and that's all you care to know
forever in-between I see you mean...

"hit the road with your dreams
and maybe, baby that's where you'll find me."

* * *

you don't dream at night, cause all your days are dreams.
all your days are dreams.
you don't dream at night, cause all your days are dreams.
all your days are dreams.

"I had this dream I could fly, kicking pink clouds in the sky, I was looking down on everyone, yeah I was gettin' real high. Had another dream there was a black knot inside me, a black dog behind me, and nothing but the black hole of a soul below."

a dream was born, no-one could see
that's how you came to be,
yeah, and that's how the dream came to be me.
and I tried, how I tried but it withered and died.
yeah it's withering and dying' oh,
it's withering and dying.
