Floodlights

lyrics

My heads not working, I’m barely breathing
I’m only second guessing, where’s this leaning
A conscience censored, a faith misleading
Where am I running to

When I dream in puzzles, the mirrors help the echo decay

You won’t see me crying for sympathy
You won’t see me crying that’s not me
Please, don’t you weep for me honey
I’m on my own, I’ll fight on my own
So please, don’t you weep for my troubled mind

Down so low, no doubt that I’ve been higher
One step closer, and I’ll open fire
I’m no freak-show, though well intentioned
Your misplaced compassion builds fences in my head

In puzzles, the mirrors help the echo decay
But under floodlights distance remains

You won’t see me crying for sympathy
You won’t see me crying that’s not me
And please, don’t you weep for me honey
I’m on my own, I’ll fight on my own
So please, don’t you weep for my troubled mind

You won’t see me crying for sympathy
You won’t see me crying that’s not me
And please, don’t you weep for me honey
I’m on my own, I’ll fight on my own
And please, don’t you weep for my troubled mind
