lyrics

when it gets cold, bundle up
the season change is getting tough
it gets dark these days at noon
closer too impending doom
i know, know it's gonna happen,
something, soon

every day, it's getting worse
this generation's something cursed
and what's worse is no one cares
try to fix it, no one dares
not me, not you or anyone
anywhere

so i huddle in the cave that is my mind
don't you know my body's aching all the time
i'm not getting any younger
there's no shelter from the thunder so
hide out
in my mind

when i get cooped up in my room
the heat is rising, nothing blooms
so i break my restless stare
release myself to evening air
but no, nothing ever changes
way out there

i feel blackbirds coming in
they enter where the wind blows in
flying circles 'round my head
making homes upon my bed
i try, try to feel the words that laura said

"you're not alone"
she breathed it into my bones
"you are not alone"
she breathed it into my bones

but i'm alone

so i huddle in the cave that is my mind
don't you know my body's aching all the time
i'm not getting any younger
there's no shelter from the thunder so
hide out
in my mind
