Blank Spaces

lyrics

Shaken and lost we wonder about this helpless rock
Spinning into nowhere wishing for a shot
A chance to make sense, to make it count
But we keep spinning lost on this rock where we’re found

We fill in the holes of our lives with mindless crap
Not knowing we’re filling blank spaces where we need a gap
Between the words that tell the stories of our lives
Until nothing makes any sense and we can’t bother to try

Do you feel uncomfortable in silence?
Are you scared to hear the voice in your head?
Are you terrified of what you’d be missing?
If you pause enough to see that you’re dead?

We did this to ourselves,
Blind victims of systems we create to make sure we don’t miss out
We make no connection to the disconnection
Or the discontentedness caused by misdirection

Do you feel uncomfortable in silence?
Are you scared to hear the voice in your head?
Are you terrified of what you’d be missing?
If you pause enough to see that you’re dead?

Wearing the blindfolds of culture
We can’t see past technology
We create to see each other
And we grow the gap between
Without a pause no time for rest
Will fill our lives and make a mess

Do you feel uncomfortable in silence?
Are you scared to hear the voice in your head?
Are you terrified of what you’d be missing?
If you pause enough to see that you’re dead?

Though were scared and trapped by greed
Blank space is all we need.
