11:46 by my watch
my back breaks slowly
from going it solo
under the weight of the world

when I'm out of the loop
I can make more sense of things
get us to a higher place
and we'll understand

we are the calm before the storm
we are the answers
loose ends tied before we were born
we are the answers
no matter what it takes
we hold out till the weather breaks

so ask me what I'm thinking
cause I've got words to burn
and I don't want to waste them
talking to myself

we've tamed the land, conquered our world
but we stay up all night anyway
peeling back the layers
and counting the rings on our tree

11:46 by my watch
revelation time
and I'm trying to remember
what I'm fighting for

I don't know if I mean what I say
when I say I don't know what I'm hearing anymore
but those words sound so true
when they come from you

we are the calm before the storm
we are the answers
we are the sum of our parts and more
through our mis-steps and mistakes
we hold out till the weather breaks
we are one
