about

From our self-titled debut LP.

lyrics

Always moving, even when I'm stopped
Think I've got it now, but it's just waiting to pop
And when it does, I can never have it the way it was

I try to get along, but I can't
Cause we think like statues but move like ants

I just want something in my hand
Can't take it with me, but while I'm here
While I'm here, I just want something in my hand

Nothing's changed, from what I see
But if these walls could talk, they'd ask what happened to me
I would say, they don't take it all
Just a little each day

I want to get along, and I try
But with each hello is another goodbye

I just want something in my hand
Can't take it with me, but while I'm here
While I'm here, I just want something in my hand

If I made believe
If I thought it up
If I made it breathe
Would it be enough?
Where we're going
It should be said
Enjoy the view but mind the ledge

Is it what I want?
Is it what I need?
Statues and ants fall at the same speed
Sometimes forever is just another day
Can't keep everything
But this I won't give away

Something you can't take away

I just want something in my hand
Can't take it with me, but while I'm here
While I'm here, I just want something in my hand

I can never have it the way it was
