Lyrics to Retrospect
Time is standing still for a moment
And I am caught between the cracks
Paralytic suffering behind a smile so empty
I am the cause and the answer
But I find myself tumbling in retrospect
I come to the conclusion
We shifted way too fast

Find your place in a world of constant change
Don't dwell on shadows long departed
But I can't tag along with everyone
Because I feel myself anchored in stable days
Find me in the attic

Everything around me seems to reinvent its purpose
Day by day, I disavow reality
Past and present stitched together
Neverending cycle, pull me to my feet

Time is standing still for a moment
And I am caught between the cracks
Paralytic suffering behind a smile so empty
I am the cause and the answer
But I find myself tumbling in retrospect
I come to the conclusion
I won't give up

I won't
I won't give up me
Behind the curtain there's more room to see
And now everything that blocked my way is turning over and my vision cleared

For all the days I've been battling my melancholy
I've come to find myself
In a moment I recurred

I still remember life flowing beneath my feet
Put back the stars in my eyes
Shine my way

I contemplate myself
Countervailing my inner struggle and overcome
And I - I contemplate myself
Countervailing my inner struggle and overcome - the world
