Arcane Roots – Fireflies lyrics
I wish I could sympathise
But I don't
I see you with child's eyes
Never no more
I wish it'd be dignified (How I wish you'd be dignified)
But it's no use
And I'll sing for a simple life
While I swing from the noose
 
Enough
 
We're falling like fireflies who strayed from the shore
Waiting to realise, we're caught in the storm
All of your compromise and all of your talk
Will fade out with no surprise and swallow you whole
 
Enough
 
Delicate your innocence
Waiting for the click of design
Navigate your fingertips
Watch the apple fall from his eye
So down we came into your home
Taking all our scriptures' desire
Never were you all alone
All we want's a piece of the quiet
 
But we're falling like fireflies who strayed from the shore
Waiting to realise, we're caught in the storm
All of your compromise and all of your talk
Will fade out with no surprise and swallow you whole
 
So don't you feel the colours as they fade?
Ripples in an ocean of the same
Stripped of all the wonder, and your name
So help me forget
That I'm falling for it
 
We're falling like fireflies who strayed from the shore
Waiting to realise, we're caught in the storm
All of your compromise and all of your talk
Will fade out with no surprise and swallow you whole
 
Enough
