lyrics

We don’t have to wonder
We have all the questions we can take
A list longer than our shadows
At the tail end of the day

There’s not too much that shakes us
With these waves of chaos on the rise
But we read a phrase in sidewalk chalk
So sincere it made you cry

If you want to fall apart
Or if you want to hold yourself together for now
While we’re waiting in the dark
I can be whatever you need until we get out

This toxic positivity
Is like staring into artificial light
Pollution of the optimist
Is so bright it hurts my eyes

I don’t want to be happy now
I want to know the truth and nothing more
Even though it breaks me down
Though it knocks me to the floor

So if you want to fall apart
Or if you want to hold yourself together for now
While we’re waiting in the dark
I can be whatever you need until we get out
