lyrics

Memory like a fish hanging from a weed.
I wish I could remember how to land.
Lost my footing climbing in the wind
Now sinking in the cold quicksand.

An unbalanced signal is what I omit.
I wish I could speak fluently enough to express myself.
I wish I could stop wishing for dreams and know only now.
There's so much I don't understand about myself.

I can't even say what I want to say.
My mind says yes, my mouth says nothing and my heart sighs again.
My excitement has built a wall for itself.
Now nothing gets out and nothing gets in.

Left my laces open, now I'm falling over my feet.
You start off with a sentence and you end up with a mouth full of words.
Can't get my point across cause my bridges always crumble .
Lax motivation for communication has crippled my words.

I can't even say what I want to say.
My mind says yes, my mouth says nothing and my heart sighs again.
My excitement has built a wall for itself
Now nothing gets out and nothing gets in.
