Lyrics

[Refrain 1]
When you wake up
For when you wake up

[Verse 1]
There once was a land
Little known to your kind
There once was a land
Only we knew how to find
Where we were fire
Simmer down, simmer down

[Verse 2]
When my hands are sore
From carrying this weight around
When my eyes are numb
And the air is failing on our lungs
And we’re left with a bitter taste
On our tongues

[Chorus]
Your shallow truth
Fractures and distorts our self views
And my tether beat
Echoes in the minds of a few

[Refrain 2]
For when you wake up
For when you wake up

[Verse 3]
All light absorbed
In the shadows I will hide
'Til the contour of my silhouette
Fades to undefined
I still have fire
Simmer down, simmer down

[Chorus]
Your shallow truth
Fractures and distorts our self views
And my tether beat
Echoes in the minds of a few

[Chorus]
Your shallow truth
Fractures and distorts our self views
And my tether beat
Echoes in the minds of a few

[Refrain 3]
For when you wake up
If you ever wake up
