lyrics

There’s nothing to see here, nothing new under the sun
There’s nothing beneath the brief illumination
Of whiskey evenings and nineties reruns
I followed the rapture and I followed my passions
I couldn’t give them what they were asking
I wanna meet someone once without a mask on
Sycamore trees and frozen traffic
And all the living things on automatic
There’s nothing holy, nothing tragic

And I’m just sleepwalking
I’m just cheap talking
Never really saying anything at all

There’s nothing to fight for and no prizes to be won
There’s not much left of my great imagination
So I sit back and let the projector run
Could you give me one time something tribal
Something bloody for my survival
Something deeper than this simulation runs

And I’m just sleepwalking
I’m just cheap talking
Never really saying anything at all

Is there something to be here, is there something to become
Is there something to move to but these tired dance songs
Is there something even that we could take a chance on

In all this sleepwalking
All this cheap talking
Saying nothing, going nowhere
And I’m just sleepwalking
I’m just cheap talking
Never really saying anything at all

Only just holding on to what I once thought I was
