lyrics

Northern Star

sleep comes down
the heart of a home
dream in aquamarine

clouds appear
in the strangest gray
see the ghost in the machine

every day I’m losing ground
every day I’m losing ground

way past the point of braving
all the hell that’s raging
am I worth saving?
looking for a northern star
when your heart is breaking
all that’s worth forsaking
do you think we’ll make it?
looking for a northern star

a broken trust
an unheard song
the feel of the coming harm

a photograph
transistor radio
a shelter for the storm

every time you look away
every time you look away

it’s quiet now
no static in the air
the sirens have all died down

abandon in place
leave those things behind
buried beneath the ground

I’ve got eyes like sparks this time
I’ve got eyes like sparks this time
