lyrics

it's so quiet
it's so still
everything's suspended
i can hear my breath

i'm not tired
i've no guilt
i know nothing really ended
when you laughed to death

when i raise up my hands i swear
i can feel the space
i can feel the space
like a ball

and i hear to the curve of the
horizon
i can hear it
hear it all

and you fell
in the face
of impossible demands

like a fire
in a fog
half a boy and half a man

it's so quiet
it's so still
everything's suspended
i can hear my breath

and you fell
in the face
of impossible demands

with your heart
in the world
and your feet snared in the land

i'm not tired
i've no guilt
i know nothing really ended
when you laughed to death

when i raise up my hands i swear
i can see your face
colours and the shapes
see it all

and i feel
time roar at the horizons
hold it in my arms
like a ball

it's so quiet
it's so still
everyone is leaving
they're all bored to death
