lyrics

Hiding in the piles of leaves you taught me how
To see the trees as pins and needles sticking out
Go cut them down
Step on their bones
I can not keep the walking sleep from catching up
Staring down the linoleum and plastic cups

Follow through, I’ve been waiting here for you
Welcome home, if only for a while
Sink into all the things I never knew
Follow through, follow through

Bullet holes and goldfish bowls with teapot spouts
Take control and tell me what to live without
Take what you need
Sleep by the sink
Moving past and getting through is all I’ve known
Try to take the blinders off of me

Follow through, I’ve been waiting here for you
Welcome home, if only for a while
Sink into all the things I never knew
Follow through, follow through
