lyrics

So did you know what you wanted way before me?
I kept my head in the ground where I couldn’t see
And now I’m standing here dead on my feet
And I can see in the glass where I used to be

I used to know what you thought when I looked in your eyes
But baby I must’ve blinked, got dirt in mine
Cos it’s like all that we’ve known’s gone up in flames
And I just can’t think how to make it the same

Won’t you release me from this incapacity?
Enable me
Incapacity

I walk a line, when I talk I don’t find things to say
With each passing minute I slip further away
Into the back of my mind where I’m still with you
And I got someone to hold in a life that I knew

Won’t you release me from this incapacity?
Enable me
Incapacity

And now it seems to me that we were on petrol fumes
I was so high I’d got my head on the moon
But now the stars have died and the night is black
As I wait here to die I don’t think they’ll be back
(I don’t know why you’re looking at me)

Won’t you release me from this incapacity?
Enable me
Incapacity
Now won’t you tell me what is real?
How do I heal?
What is real...?
