lyrics

Two keys scrape against my skin
My thoughts are drawn to you
By association with this place
And the gradient from black to blue

Pains of every step
Draw my body to the ground
Just a little more
I can see the glowing from my door

With no thought retrieve the keys again
While many steps remain
But subconsciously it's clear
The journey's end is near

Tonight left me on my own
In the dark streets of this town
But the lifeless winds surrounding me
End up broken by the railroad sound

Music in my ears
Drawing pictures for my eyes
Just another walk
From the realm beyond the matching lock

With no thought retrieve the keys again
While many steps remain
But subconsciously it's clear
The journey's end is near

Frozen in the dark
Draw my footsteps to a crawl
Just as you appear
I regain the chance to persevere

With no thought retrieve the keys again
While many steps remain
But subconsciously it's clear
The journey's end is near
