lyrics

Dear diary, I need an answer to a question
Does putting pen on paper help me process all those thoughts in my head
I heard a story of how you saved a million people
By allowing them to write in you exposing all their wishes for death

Even the biggest ships will never reach the horizon
So why aim high when you know it’s going to hurt when you fall
A glass half full always spills
A glass half empty doesn’t lose as much when it hits the floor

Forgive me for I have compromised the structure
And structural integrity’s the only thing that matters when you’re building a foundation on the things that haven’t happened at all
Stake your claim
Before we knock down all of these walls

Even the biggest ships will never reach the horizon
So why aim high when you know it’s going to hurt when you fall
A glass half full always spills
A glass half empty doesn’t lose as much when it hits the floor

Why do I do the same thing every time
I always seem to worry loads about what I’ve left behind
It’s a waste of time when I can turn my head 360 degrees
Do you want to see me do that

Regardless of what you’ve heard about the future
We’re all in this together so make sure you keep me at your side
I know secrets, I learned them from the ones before me
And if the elders think it’s worth it then they’ll take us all along for the ride

Even the brightest stars can never prove there’s a heaven
So why aim high when you know it’s going to hurt when you fall
A glass half full always spills
A glass half empty doesn’t lose as much when it hits the floor

Why do I do the same thing every time
I always seem to worry loads about what I’ve left behind
It’s a waste of time when I can turn my head 360 degrees
Do you want to see me do that
