up all night, you carry me through tomorrow like a falling tree nought could ever separate adhesive that binds our fate setting out, we're on our own nothing out there is carved in stone where we're headed, who could know adhesive will hold us close hold us close, hold us close all i had was black and white a one dimension, colourless eye you arrived and painted in all the colour that was hidden time had movement of it's own i said movement was my home then you came and settled things the colour came flooding hold us close, hold us close if we come across a day when the sky gives words away would you take me by the hand even though i had it wrong again

single eye and an echo i keep banging on of what i've naught pick it up, i keep scheming i keep feeling that the world is wrought I get locked into the feeling i get locked into what i've naught i get locked into the feeling i get locked into it, locked into it with a lie and a paint brush cover up the feeling i am lost but i float up to the ceiling and i take with me it, take with me it take with me it, take with me it take with me it, take with me it who am i if not an island cause my back is covered in the muck and the feet that keep striding treading over and over, over and over over and over, over and over over and over me

of all the fishes in the sea there's none that draw me in so deep we hold together like we're one and all this water takes it's toll i want you the most are we too close we've been to where all is black we've been there and we came back this may not be the safest place but we're unbroken and here we'll remain i want you the most are we too close from way down in the deepest deep it's hard to recognise a thing it's every swimmer for them self we lose our anchor and head for the air

something that you told me, that don't feel right something that you said, something that you read and it's playing with my head and i'm mulling it over can we do a run through before our time so we have a plan, so we understand if it's out of our hands are we're screwing with the order we are so alive working on a theory that we're alright when you hold my hand, mae b's in her bed i'm praying it's not over and that we're only getting closer what if I told ya when i'm with you and all of our flaws, all of our stains that i would do it all over and i wouldn't change a thing

is there time is there time enough to form it up the window closed or fallen shut my mind can't help but wonder it are we stuck stuck inside with broken backs broken from the weight of falling to the whole new world we're in as we face look into the nothing that's only right outside our window our blood runs cold and we step back to rebuild we pick up stones one by one giving each a special name building up brand new shape and as we carry on, we do at a new pace if only to move forward and not to stand in place hazy days faded lines make up a plan how we see the world behind us leads us to another step with a jolt we wake up to another stand too blurred to understand the figure too difficult to comprehend

when we came back, we found our home was empty we fell through the door and laid in a pile, reflecting echoes the garden had grown up over the walls; it was over we knew it was time to pick ourselves up and get this home in order we had become people who live on the border the border between the way it should be and a disorder pushing aside our average need for a connection tied like a root stuck in the ground to one another wanting to keep true to the course our feet had taken together we drew, we drew up a plan that found us naked we'd start a family all of our own, and we'd make it moving ahead into the call we had awakened
