about

There was light before the rain began
And there was hope behind the suffering joke
Lies come, lies they go, even the sun is tired
Under the surfaces, there is a benevolent drone
Do you feel it?

So brutal when the words are on
The tip of your tongue
So strange when your tired eyes won’t
Shut your brain down

Hold back the melancholy
Hold back the fear
Darling, it’s a crime
Hold back the fear
Hold back the melancholy
It’s a crime

Sometimes I can taste my death like a candy bar
So sweet and complete, as infinity takes me
-but before that-
I create to keep that dog at my bearable door
I’m a hologram in my egocentric universe, oh

You’re alive but you know that the wire
Under you is bending
And the truth is only telling you to be
Immune to everything

Hold back the melancholy
Hold back the fear
Darling, it’s a crime
Hold back the fear
Hold back the melancholy
It’s a crime

Hold back the fear
Hold back the darkness
Hold back the melancholy
It’s a crime

So strange when your tired eyes won’t
Shut your brain down

Hold back the melancholy
Hold back the fear
Darling, it’s a crime
Hold back the fear
Hold back the melancholy
It’s a crime

Sometimes I can taste my death like a candy bar
So sweet and complete, as infinity takes me
-but before that-
I create to keep that dog at my bearable door
I’m a hologram in my egocentric universe, oh

You’re alive but you know that the wire
Under you is bending
And the truth is only telling you to be
Immune to everything

Hold back the melancholy
Hold back the fear
Darling, it’s a crime
Hold back the fear
Hold back the melancholy
It’s a crime

Hold back the fear
Hold back the darkness
Hold back the melancholy
It’s a crime
