You can't actually see them
They're right there
Shapes and forms fill the space
Giving no details behind the face
They all think you're already gone

Nothing seems more expensive than free
We carry the demons around like trophies
From here the sky is easy to find
But the walls will never let us down

Who are you and what can you see?
Half the world's asleep and that's where you need to be.
Half asleep.

And you're not alone
We all need to be
You can lose your way
It's easy to see
Healing the scars
That have a life of their own
A life of their own
A life of their own
