lyrics

Clutching tight to these delusions
A safer space, a home inside
It's for these reasons I keep moving
From place to place, a name unrecognized
With intersections in the traces left behind

So if these notions seem confusing
It's 'cause there's pieces I forgot
From time to time, I might remove them
And I'll re-sequence details, rearrange the plot
But with names and faces that I thought I'd lost

But I know your crimes.
And I know your shame.

Can you learn to let this go and walk away?

"Yeah, I'll tell you all about it someday"

Just hit rewind, try another way
Your secrets kept up in the rafters
Away from all who would find them now

I dissolve in the absence of change
This is a call to my list of estranged
For every path I've known, I let you go each time
To be absolved as I wander my days

Be self assured in your decisions
'Cause once you leave, you can't return
It's not the same, no it's some place different
Like a memory or a fragment overheard
A distortion of the way you thought things were

I'll ask you one more time-

Will you show your face?
Can you discard your lies and hold your past at bay?

Forever hiding from the truth in your shame

You're like a pantomime
Or a match in play
Your secrets kept up in the rafters
Away from all who would find you out

I dissolve in the absence of change
This is a call to my list of estranged
For every path I've known, I let you go each time
To be absolved as I wander my days
