Discreet Phrases

from The Light Has Gone Out of My Life by Harborer



this is a song about my mind at one of its lowest points.


all i can bear to say
shrinks a bit each day
my head is full of rocks
disguising themselves as thoughts
but they're not

an educated mind
uneducated in life
she beckons for a kiss
but grabs my arm and twists
and i miss it

i won't exist for you anymore
but how am i supposed to close this door i've opened for myself
i'm too curious to leave, too worried to stay
my expectations crumble more and more each day
i can't stay alive for you anymore

she presses on the glass
connection fading fast
then puts her hand in mine
my uneducated mind
goes offline

she gazes into my eyes
my imagination flies
the words have left my brain
to find a way to say
this is okay

i can't keep up this act anymore
but it's all i've ever known to be myself
i'd love to be a human i'd love to see me try
yet i melt in my chair as i turn off my mind
i wish i wasn't me anymore
