Looking out my window
Wonder how it came to be

Feels just like a tempo
Lifted by a gentle breeze

Ugly as a suitcase
I can see it stretch for days

Hanging on a sunset
Softly trampled by the rain

(Chorus)
Way too long
Hold on
Hold on
Dead and gone
So long
Hold on
Way too long
Hold on
Hold on
Dead and gone
So long
Hold on
So long
Hold on

Looking out my window
Trying to find a hiding place

Climb up to the tree tops
Watch it all just drift away

Chorus

    Dealing with life's woes and crippling things with going to the flow. Drifting, sinking, and finally holding on to life itself. I do believe that part of it could be isolation, but more of the concept of things flowing, like down a river. You are bound to eventually wash up on shore.
