about

The second single from Melbourne 5-piece The Motion Below.

lyrics

I tore my chest in twain so I could see what lay inside,
But when all I found was an anxious mess I averted my eyes.
Something changed, yet it feels the same; a burning from within,
Forsaking my own fortune, I threw caution to the wind.

Reform and Converge.
All our lives we're told to run; but now you're lost inside the barrel of a gun,
Just trying to escape the noise that hope destroys.
All our lives we're told to reach for an unseen promise that nobody can keep.
Look away from tomorrow's gaze.

You are not a burden, so don’t deny that every life has its worth.
But we take a different path, and we’re on our own, and everybody hurts.

There's a certain set of realities that we all struggle to face.
But to pull the plug is to wave the flag,
And to wave that flag is to waste.
One fall from grace isn't worth the next.

If your sanity's spread thin and you can't find the strength to stand,
Just turn attention inward and take yourself by the hand.
Everything is chaos and we all may die alone,
But for now we have each other, so let's shout our way home.

You are not a burden, so don’t deny that every life has its worth.
But we take a different path, and we’re on our own, and everybody hurts.

I know the way is obscured, but if you just hold on,
We can all be whole, but you must hold on.
For even just one more,
For even just one more,
For even just one more day.
