about

This song documents the highs and lows of sensory overload.

lyrics

s that all you have to say
Before we go inside and play
I can’t believe it’s come to this
Go forth my son you’re shaking
Time to give it a twist

Did you know
I was racing around while you wanted to take it slow

I found all my strength from the lights in the room
Like heat from fire in the increasing gloom
Comforting to say the least
But not without uncertainties

Now I’m burning a hole inside
Out of sorts but beaming a smile
The way that the words roll off of your fingers
Is leaving me tongue tied

What would my family say
If they knew I spent the evenings this way
And what some of my best friends wouldn’t give
To be here with me
Though they may say it’s a trick

Did you know
I was racing around while you wanted to take it slow

I found all my strength from the lights in the room
Like heat from fire in the increasing gloom
Comforting to say the least
But not without uncertainties

Now I’m burning a hole inside
Out of sorts but beaming a smile
The way that the words roll off of your fingers
Is leaving me tongue tied

Did you see
I was on top of the tallest tree
Could it be
That everyone here is just like me

I found all my strength from the lights in the room
Like heat from fire in the increasing gloom
Comforting to say the least
But not without uncertainties

Now I’m burning a hole inside
Out of sorts but beaming a smile
The way that the words roll off of your fingers
Is leaving me tongue tied
