lyrics

i hold an uncomfortable shape
a child dreaming of the day
that she will escape

i know of a secret place
and i know someday i will get there
i'll meet you on the way

i don't know what has kept me going
but i can see it
disfigured by the haunted days
it flickers in the warm confusion
a ruin of the dream
to get away
to feel safe

falling through the world
falling through the world
falling through the world
toward a better place

and though abjection self-sustains
i realize something has changed

behind the pain

and on the grass beside the lake
i realize that place is here now
i can see it in your face

and though we still feel so much pain
and there is terror in the future
we're together for today

we recognize that we are falling
and nothing slows us down
but we can keep each other safe
for now
the terror of the loss of contact
reduces me to this
but i can feel you
even though you're far away

i know a place where we can recover
it is familiar but unreal
the air is clear
there is warmth and color
we can exist
we can heal

and though it hurts beyond description
we all found each other
we've built our own secret place
through all the fog and disconnection
we let it cover us
we hold each other so we know

we've found home.
