lyrics

I've been staring at the fucking sun
I'm just doing what I've always done
When I look away I just feel better

I'm giving up again
Because my time is better spent
Dissolving in my bed
And there's a pounding in my head
That's screaming, "please, not this again.
No please, not this again."

And I'll walk single file with myself
Because sometimes I just feel like someone else
And I know it's hard to tell
But I'm burning up inside this living hell

Every day
I'm pretending to be awake
But I'm a decade away
Building fantasies from better days
And I know that what I see
Will never be true to me
When it's all said and done
Will there be hope for me away from the sun?

I've been staring at the fucking sun
It's like a staring contest that no one has won
And no one ever will
But now I've gone to go get something done
But I do everything and nothing all at once
If you ask me to run, I'll run

I'll run so hard I cannot breathe
I'll fall so hard I'll break my dreams
So lay with me
We can fix them in my sleep

Every day
I'm pretending to be awake
But I'm a decade away
Building fantasies from better days
And I know that what I see
Will never be true to me
When it's all said and done
Will there be hope for me away from the sun?

Something tells me that the sun won't always be so bright
And i'll put up a better fight
When that day comes will the small relief make the damage feel alright
And in the darkness will I ever miss the light?

Something tells me that the sun won't always be so bright
And i'll put up a better fight
When that day comes will the small relief make the damage feel alright
Will I ever feel alright?

I've been staring at the fucking sun
I'm just doing what I've always done
When I look away I feel good for once

Every day
I'm pretending to be awake
But I'm a decade away
Building fantasies from better days
And I know that what I see
Will never be true to me
When it's all said and done
Will I be staring at the fucking sun?
