We should have known, you're not an island but you're as closed as one And all this time, I dream of nothing but I dream of all your flaws And cut through concrete: A failed heart that's big enough for me to break it We've always known, there are mountains hiding underneath us, hiding underneath us. All this we'd hid, you're not an island but you're survived by sea And all this time, although we played at love this heart has had enough of The rats at the gates closing in and now he screams at all your neighbours How could you know? That there are mountains hiding underneath. We should have seen, you're not an island but you're as closed as me Of all things we'd said, you kept your friends held close but they have kept you closer I cut through concrete: A failed heart that's broke enough for me to stop it We've always known that there are monsters living in our beds.

For Empire 04:24
All that's left, not an island but a wreck for our time. We were led to our farthest edge cut and cut adrift. I was lost on my darkest days, the wolf claws at my feet. I was building something to turn this boat around. All that's left, not an empire but a state lost at sea. If you'd have known would you call it home? Oh how the land lies. We were lost on our darkest days, the wolf curled at your feet. I was hoping someone would turn this boat around. All that's left, not an island but the wreck of our times. I was building something to turn this boat around.

I came to map the sun and stars But I can't find them in the dark To navigate the ocean floor I can't hold my breath much more You sat and watched us as we slept Standing guard above our beds Whole of heart and wholly ours Despite the fires all around I came to map the ocean floor But I can't hold my breath no more I sat and watched you as you slept Standing guard over your head I would live another life As soon as I am found myself I came to map the sun and stars Falling over in the dark
