Something's killing you, drowning out the laughter
An obstacle that's laying you low
It could be oceans, mountains or walls of fire
You don't care but frankly you don't know
Every phone call pokes holes in the membrane
That wraps itself between the two of us
The dialect of angels is nails on a chalkboard
To those of us who think we are in love

Don't let the world swallow you

I dine in silence on bread ground from hardship
The easier it is the more it tastes like ash
I've been waiting on a future promised years ago and
Living in a house that wasn't built to last
In your eyes I'm just a gap that not too long ago
Was filled by someone you could lean on
Yet in mine, in legion you are anguish
A beautiful passenger alone

Don't let the world swallow you
