Posies – Everyone Moves Away lyrics

Please forgive, for they know not what they've done
And if they did, they'de surely resurrect their trust
Promises were made to break and the family kept it's end
And now your answer, my friend,
Is blowing in one head and out the other
But you will find yourself
You will recognize and realize
Even when you can't forget
The times they tried you, things denied you, inside the big nameless house
From which everyone moves away, everyone moves away
Growing up in severed states of mind
Can cause you to to blind more than twice
And now we're hurt by the words we've never said
The wounds you never bled
Just aggravate your head until they've gone
But you will like yourself
You will verify and vocalize
Even when you can't forget
That when you stayed you, they betrayed you, inside the big nameless house
From which everyone moves away, everyone moves away
Try to wipe away the traces of people, places, childhood spaces
Etched upon your memory, like the way that we were raised
In our backyard we were left no time to think
The blood that turned to ink splelled neglect
Now there's no sun and the grass is overgrown
The sacred seed they've sown is utterly alone and scared to death
But you will free yourself
You will cut the cord and cauterize
And if you ever feel an urge
To look behind you, let this remind you
We both grew up in the same house
From which everyone moves away, everyone moves away
Everyone moves, everyone moves
Everyone moves away
