It's not so much a storm, but just a cloud that lives inside of me
He doesn't stir so easily these days, but when he wakes
He goes the distance in a marathon of days too long
Open containers that sing songs,
You'll never dream again, but you can pray

I guess we only settle in to what we know
I guess we always settle in, and we know

That there is comfort in a world
Where darkness is the only thing we see
And cold is all we have to breathe
Where affectations keep us company
Where the lies we tell to the eyes that roll in doubt
Are somehow out of our control

It's not about the scars, but more the crowds that walk all over me
They don't give up too easily these days, but when they break they go to pieces
Fall apart right here in North Side bars under a sky that knows no stars
You'll never shine again, but you will stay

I guess we only settle in to what we know
I guess we always settle in, and we know

That there is comfort in a world
Where darkness is the only thing we see
And cold is all we have to breathe
Where affectations keep us company
Where the lies we tell to the eyes that roll in doubt
Are somehow out of our control

That there is comfort in a world
Where darkness is the only thing we see
And cold is all we have to breathe
Where affectations keep us company
Where the lies we tell to the eyes that roll in doubt
Are somehow out of our control
We lost control
