lyrics

i soaked my hands in water
till they couldn't hold any more
my wrinkles like river veins
leading to the ocean

i turned my eyes to the sky
closed against the brightness
my eyelids letting light in
like a canopy of trees

these memories have lost their purpose
but their uselessness is something
i can rely on

and i'm not running
from anything anymore
i'm holding my ground and facing
whatever is on its way

i saw my fingers drift away
spilling on the table
holding tightly to whatever words
made their way to the page

i heard my mouth fall to pieces
as i tried to speak these thoughts
whatever tumbles out i hope
will find its way like the wind

these memories have lost their purpose
but their uselessness is something
i can rely on

and i'm not running
from anything anymore
i'm holding my ground and facing
whatever is on its way
