lyrics

seemingly unprovoked,
the inflammation crept,
the tendons and the bones,
revolt, prevent,

the shadow of the earth
is blacking out the moon
and caused us to revert,
don't return

when i couldn't move
i had nowhere to go,
my stagnancy proved
enough to undo
the progress i showed

when i couldn't move
my momentum was gone
the old devils i knew
didn't have to run fast
to catch me at all

i don't want to sit around and sulk
don't want to forget all that i know
felling like i'm trapped inside my home

chew it 'til it's fluid but i choke
getting big but losing all my swoll
sitting still is not instilling hope

been keeping off my toes
postponing my return
improvement's coming slow
still weak, still hurts

relinquishing control
we're sinking in the dune
pretending it's our call
hold, breathe in
