lyrics

(Verse 1)
There's always a bird
That calls it's cage it's home
There's always a tree
That gets more sunlight on it's own
And as for me I'm left to be
anything I want
in the plaster walls and windowsills
I've fought for, for so long

(Pre- Chorus)
Everything is simple now
my head is up there in the clouds
it's in the streets I walk on
it's scattered in the places I went wrong

(Chorus)
But to go outside is a simple task
but its like everyone is looking
and I'm made of glass
They see tight through my fickle attempts
and I think the solution is just to wait
but in these four walls is where I feel most safe

I see right through myself

(Verse 2)
There's always a match
that doesn't quite scrape the surface
There's always an object
that doesn't live up to it's purpose
and as for them
they play pretend
in a dollhouse full of all of their friends
They refuse to leave
because they want to believe

(Pre-chorus)
Everything is simple now
I've found my way here on the ground
I'll follow the streets I walk on
And leave behind the places I went wrong

(Repeat Chorus)


(Last chorus)
To go outside is a simple task
but its like everyone is looking
and I'm made of glass
they see right through my elaborate disguise
And I know the solution isn't to wait
but in these four walls
I'll surely suffocate

I see right through myself
