The Antlers – Palace lyrics
You were simpler
you were lighter when we thought like little kids
Like a weightless, hate-less animal
beautifully oblivious before you were hid inside a stranger you grew into
as you learned to disconnect

Now he hangs your mirrors separately
so one can’t show you what the other reflects

When he heard I was on his tail
he emptied your account and hid a part of you that’s so invaluable
(the part of you unsellable at any amount)
He left the tallest peak of your paradise
buried in the bottom of a canyon in hell

but I swear I’ll find your light in the middle
where there’s so little late at night, down in the pit of the well

Then when heaven has a line around the corner
we shouldn’t have to wait around and hope to get in
if we can carpenter a home in our heart right now
and carve a palace from within

We won’t need to take a ton of pictures
It won’t be easy to believe
the day we wake inside a secret place that everyone can see
