This is the room no longer closing in
This is the ceiling giving way to the sky
The flowers in bloom and then retreating again
Grasping for the feeling right before the feeling dies

The gears and the cogs. the plans we set in motion
Just follow the sinking sun into the ocean

You're so long away
(I can see you)
Don’t you think you’ve went far enough?
(But I can't reach you)
It's time to close your eyes,
(Won't you come and catch me?)
Just let go, and count down, and wake up

This is the road from your half-drawn maps
Our city dying growing smaller over you shoulder
The ciphers and codes keep the landscape from collapse
But if you're trying you can feel your bed growing colder

And the street lamps offer no answers

You're so long away
Haven't you went far enough?
It's time to close your eyes,
Just let go and count down, and wake up
