lyrics

I was dancing with the street
when suddenly I couldn't move my feet
for a feeling
having come upon a place where I could
turn around and see my face
left me reeling
what is it about today that makes me want to
turn around and go away
not be dealing?
sinking through the floor walking through the wall
walking up the door through
the ceiling

Why am I fading away?
why am I so clear today?
wish I was here

In the longest eye to be perceived as real
is just another deal
under the table
looking to the West to trade another
knockoff of unhappiness
for a fable
looking to the void to see the evidence
the mind cannot avoid
is unstable
so I was
dancing with the street
when suddenly I couldn't move my feet
was unable

So why am I staying away?
why can't I stay here today?
wish I was here

Think I want to think about it
but I'm hiding from another year
it's zero in the morning
when I'm easiest to disappear
wish I was here
wish I was here

Why am I going away?
I don't understand it
why did I go away?
why can't I stand here today?
wish I was here
wish I was here
wish I was here
