Heavy in a fever
A situation in time
You seek comfort in darkness
You close the blinds.  

You say you're restless but tired
I say you're swimming through fire
Can't stay afloat
When you're burning alive. 
Can't stay afloat when you're burning alive. 

There's a mine in the valley
Rich with exotic stones
Marked by a path
Of dead miner's bones

And there's a life in your belly
You're no longer alone
Guard it in a shelter of skin & bones
Guard it in a shelter of skin & bones

There's a light in the doorway
It moves across the floor
Step over the threshold
And meet what's in store

You'll find it's not as bad as the images that you've created
Staring down the barrel of the morning as if you betrayed it. 

There's a mine under the night
And it's sinking with the weight of the day
So get a good look at the moment
Because the moment isn't here to stay

So get a good look at the moment because the moment isn't here to stay
Then close your eyes and count to 10 and you'll be ok.

Tomorrow is cradled in a balance of heartache & metaphor
You'll know it when you get there by the memories you've had before
Hold a lighter to the ashes and wait for them to be reborn

Take a pick axe to the morning
And break into the day
And tear out all the pieces 
That are getting in your way 

There's a silence in the well 
It's been robbed of words to say
As the clouds move overhead
You close your eyes & pray

Hold your breath
Let your watery dreams wash over you
Now wake up and breathe only
Settle in the truth.
