Follow the river
Run like a sinner
Leave no track
So I can’t turn back

Words from my father
Signs in the water
Ignoring the facts
Hurting to distract

All this time I thought I was free
I’m counting my bones learning all of me
Don’t track me down I was born to leave
Don’t bother my name it was never me

I am losing my shadow
The evidence of what’s real
I run with the haunted
Detaching myself from me

You’re chasing time you’re too blind to see
Eternity lies in the hands of thee
I’m the girl under water oh you will see
When you hear the storm you will think of me

Collecting my stories
Tales of beginnings
Leaving the endings
Mystery

The myth of tomorrow
My art and my sorrow
Detachment from circles of misery

You’re chasing time you’re too blind to see
Eternity lies in the hands of thee
Oh touch my skin so that I can feel
Something more than what’s left of me

I run with the haunted
Detachment from what is real
I’m breaking the mirrors
I can’t stand the thought me

You’re chasing time you’re too blind to see
Eternity lies in the hands of thee
Don’t track me down, I was born to leave
Don’t bother my name, it was never me

I run with the haunted
We’re called the unwanted
Not part of a system, detaching me

I’m made of tomorrows,
I’m feeding on sorrows
I’ll take all your morrow
Lay it all on my me
