lyrics

we learned how to walk
we learned how to speak
we learned how to read
forgot how to breathe

we learned to believe
in the things that we’ve seen
they ask that we try
so we learned how to lie

Wake up
Wake up
this is the age to move in silence
Wake up

Walk with me on the bottom of the ocean
don’t fear for wasted hours
the short lives we live last a long fucking time

This is the age that we learn to accept that
everything generally will be okay
this is the lie that we all choose to make up
that just alright will be worth it someday

all weak, all weak, all weak, all weak

They say they saw him wave

you’re not wiser when you’re older
you’re not wiser when you’re older
you’re not wiser when you’re older
you’re not wiser – you’re just older

Walk with me on the bottom of the ocean
don’t fear for wasted hours
the short lives we live last a long fucking time

This is the age to let your insight drip away
This is the time to regress
And if I had to live through all of this again
I don’t think I would.
