lyrics

so you say that you're leaving, dear friend
but you aren't exactly sure of where you're going
yeah i can tell that there are things that you aren't showing
and try as you might you can't talk yourself down

and your lips are chapped on the taste of this town
the way they crack and start to bleed is awful telling
of sacrifices you have made hellbent on
selling yourself on a life that's not yours to be had

so every night you look up at the maps hanging over your bed
and know that there must be something that you're meant to be doing instead
of just dreaming in circles about your tomorrows, ignoring your present
you have spent your whole life feeling trapped and now you can't pretend, oh no
you have spent your whole life feeling trapped and now you can't pretend

yeah one day you'll look straight past the ceiling see nothing but sky
that goes on for miles and miles and spans all the time from before and after you've died
and your heart's overflowing with pleasure of knowing what it's like to feel truly alive
you can't spend your whole life feeling trapped all the way til the end, oh no
you can't spend your whole life feeling trapped all the way til the end
