The Airborne Toxic Event Strangers Lyrics

Every day at sunrise, I’ve got to

Empty my pockets, I’ve got

Four cups of coffee

And these empty sockets

And the dreams I held so tender loom

In the air around my bedroom

I think about the rising sun

And the day to come and I wonder

Where you went, where you went

Are you wide awake?

Did you read all the letters that I sent?

Are you fast asleep?

Did you know I keep your memory buried away so deep?

Till all the walls fall we’ll just keep being strangers

As the world rearranges

Every blade, every seed, every ounce of green

And the sunrise is a welcome thing

But I wish it was more welcoming

‘Cause this life has such an awful sting

And a price to pay for everything

And every day they say, just get away

They say, just get back up

They say, stand tough you’ve got to keep it up

You’ve got to learn to play rough

You’ve got to run through a field on a sunlit day

Laugh it off and sleep at night

But I don’t care, I just don’t care

‘Cause if you’re not here there’s no one to laugh at the jokes we share

Are you fast asleep?

Did you know I keep your memory buried away so deep?

Till all the walls fall we’ll just keep being strangers

As the world rearranges

Every blade, every seed, every ounce of green

And the sunrise is a welcome thing

But I wish it was more welcoming

‘Cause this life has such an awful sting

And a price to pay for everything

I saw you last night in the cell where I sleep

And your shyness was such a surprise

And you said, I hold you in me like a secret I keep

And the truth of that moment defies all that we know

Where we go

So I think till all the walls fall,

I’ll just keep getting stranger

The world will rearrange her

Into something just as beautiful

I know that I won’t know you then

But I see no reason to pretend

‘Cause I love you now and I’ll love you then

And the sun will shine on everything

Till all the walls fall,

We’ll just keep being strangers

And the world will rearrange us

Into things we never planned to be

As the sun rises around us

And continues to confound us

Its beauty will surround us

And share its life with everything
