Bring On The Empty Horses

My breath collapses with the world around me
Shattered reflections and contradiction
My grip is slipping from the sand above
And it's a long way down, a long way down from here

Fate slips it's fingers around my racing heart
Shaking but standing, my conscious disbanding
Tell me I'm dreaming, I must be dreaming
Tell me I'm dreaming

Chorus:
Can't shake my conscious from this nightmare
Can't come to terms, is this reality
Is this reality
Can't find myself in my reflection
Tell me you're close behind, that I will be just fine
That I will be just fine

This structure's unstable, resting our hope on this unsound foundation,
Mark my words
The silence is torture; please tell me I'm not alone
That I'm not too far gone and not too far from home

The air in my lungs escapes me and though I have no strength left to stand
I will scream your name breathless to the distance in the hopes that it
Will
Find your ears and bring me back to you

Breaths from the end, desperate,
Screaming your name, just silence
Wake me up

Chorus:
Can't shake my conscious from this nightmare
Can't come to terms, is this reality
Is this reality
Can't find myself in my reflection
Tell me you're close behind, that I will be just fine
That I will be just fine

My eyes are open but I swear I'm sleeping
Wake me up, wake me up

I stand alone, so stationary in the space between
A blink and a tear
My echoes keep me company
Please hear me,
My voice can't breach this distance between us or so it seems
Please here me now
'Cause my voice can't breach this distance

Let's make the earth shake
(Never back down)
Our screams make earthquakes
(Heaven hark the sound) x 2
Shake me from this slumber
Reclaim my pulse and existence
Before I'm lost forever
Take me far from here
