Hopesfall – East Of 1989 lyrics

Caught force
Looked over
Courting gravity we're older
We all found out we're weightless
And leaden with potential
Water filters the screams of dead sailors
Lift off a bridge
Swim left of Sacramento
The last thing we see
Is tail lights with strings
And time is spinning out a way
One photograph back
A tunnel is shrinking
No flash no love nothing involved
At the start of it all

Don't even try
To maximize these plans
I steal
I catch this wind
After all of my lies
Don't you dare fall for
How I could be depends
On the cold you bring
Don't bend down to the world
Don't even try to

The image you cast over me
Is just a subterfuge
I can be a ghost
Ot the hero that says... My darling
Why don't you save yourself
If we die
We'll leave some behind
To lust for what seems like
The performance of a life
We've incriminated hesitation

In bending (been) down to the world
Live(d) it all
The earth will follow through
Like we give love
For a chance
To make capital
They said bend down to the world
If we could see more than we believe (...
...) then we believe
The earth would swallow you
