Sleepwalking (Prod. By Evill Dewer)
I can still see the buildings burning Hear the screams, the machine turning 120 get your eyes blurry I can still feel the ground shake, reversing a mistake The whole planet getting baked She held tight to her daughter's hand They weren't safe on their own land She heard God had his own plan, but they've only ever known Man's Hot winds carry harsh sand She lowered her head, covered her eyes Tripped on the store owner as she ducked inside He was laying there, dark red dirt by his side What had he tried? I could've sworn he was giving out signs It was one or the other, his life or my brother's I didn't think - I just let the M1 stutter Now I see that mother when I see his mother Can't sleep - in my dreams I try to free that mother Trapped in the rubble where they took their cover I think about her & I start to choke When she cried she hit the right note Reminded me of something Christ spoke Bury it all beneath the white smoke Awake Each day I stumble through this haze I'm blind My eyes are glazed My thoughts don't ever change My soul is fried I died I wish I could escape Under this weight, I walk There is no other way I could use somebody praying for me Overshadowed by glory, I know the real story Those outstretched hands appear mandatory I took the road out to the old quarry My home is claustrophobic Drown in details that I never noticed I came back with a dozen roses A led weight around my family's neck I try to keep in check, sell a smile before I disconnect All I know is I can't stay here Chasing scripts with a case of beer Afraid she'll reappear Awake at night, face stained with tears Sometimes I wish I never left the shit Outside of town is where they plant figs Little kids play soldier & they point sticks I reflect back on my choices I didn't do nothing wrong They were the ones who started planting the bombs How was I supposed to respond? Awake Each day I stumble through this haze I'm blind My eyes are glazed My thoughts don't ever change My soul is fried I died I wish I could escape Under this weight, I walk There is no other way Kevin didn't even make it home September 15th he kicked the wrong stone My ears ring, I taste dirt when my thoughts roam back to that morning in the catacombs Spirit reduced to barely flesh & bones Say I'm lucky I escaped that hell But they last saw Kev as himself I made it back, but I exist as a shell Imprisoned, I dwell & think about my buddy's laugh Loud as hell, he'd make you fold in half Forget the grains in the hourglass He walked a righteous path If he felt a certain way he never held it back But those last few days I saw him start to crack I'd find him staring off into nothing, mumbling bout something I'd change the subject He liked to talk about his baby girl I said he thought too much about the old world It's dangerous to let your thoughts swirl Leads to actions that get your arms curled And now I know that I'm right Every day of my life I fight that same fight Some truths are like the brightest light I stared so long I finally lost sight Awake Each day I stumble through this haze I'm blind My eyes are glazed My thoughts don't ever change My soul is fried I died I wish I could escape Under this weight, I walk There is no other way
