40 Miles From The Sun


there is nowhere left to hide

there is nothing to be done

no people to be saved

no pets we've never named

40 miles from the sun

as darkness craves the mind

we come undone without our pride

no time on earth to come

all the pleasures just begun

40 miles from the sun

in our coats beneath the layers

wash my skin of all the hate

we should sleep late

everything just kind of grates

40 miles from the sun

i need to lose to make it right

i'll confront the stars tonight

i will babble i will bite

you'll never know how much you shine

40 miles from the sun
