lyrics

No one told me life could be so damn confusing
I always thought that I'd be winning now I'm losing
Just goes to show

And in the darkness when the world is chasing rabbits
The darkness hugs me like a giant concrete slab it's
So hard to breathe

So I walk outside where the air is cool and fragrant
I search for handholds so I can reverse my descent
My face in grass

And time passes and history’s made behind my back
My bones get thinner and my teeth decay and then crack
I stop to care

And heaven knows that I have tried hard to be faithful
And heaven knows that I have tried not to be hateful
Why don’t you know?
Why don’t you know?
Why don’t you know?
