Lulled By Numbers

lyrics

Who put the mess in your head
Filtering the sense of all you could have said?
Who stole the words from your mouth
So twisted in contagion, and reaching out?

If this is the lullaby then
Why am I not sleeping easy?
If you leave me alone, I will come home
Dragging my tales behind me

Sweetheart, they’ll hang me out to dry
When nothing is left
There is always us

If I could sing you to sleep
Lay you down and pray that you’re a soul to keep
I would be all that you need
Wider eyes oblivious to everything
