fog
I woke up cold this morning
and I had an old song in my head
all my friends are moving on
and I'm 12 steps higher but not any further ahead
daily the ghost of you
haunts me in the strangest ways
all my friends are moving on
and I'm 12 steps higher but not any further away

does the gloom of other people surround you
does the fog make it harder to breathe
cause I know I can suffocate in ideas and emotions
along with all the lies that I believe

there's a murmur just below the surface
there's a tingling just beneath the skin
all my friends have outgrown me
and I'm growing upwards too but not within

does the gloom of other people surround you
does the fog make it harder to breathe
cause I know I can suffocate in ideas and emotions
along with all the lies that I believe

I woke up cold this morning
and I had an old song in my head
all my friends are moving on
and I'm 12 steps higher but not any further ahead

does the gloom of other people surround you
does the fog make it harder to breathe
cause I know I can suffocate in ideas and emotions
along with all the lies that I believe
