lyrics

every day splits me in two
make it three including you
reaching outward for a place to step
with no regrets I find
different faces every time
your embrace occluding mine
though you never meant to go
just couldn't stay I know why

remove the sky
remove the sky
to keep the sky from falling
remove the sky
remove the sky
to keep the sky from falling

same obstruction on each side
your retreat enables mine
I could never give you
anything you didn't have before
are we lucky just to find
something new to leave behind?
sit and breathe in the exhausting trail
of failure at no cost

remove the sky
remove the sky
to keep the sky from falling
remove the sky
remove the sky
to keep the sky from falling

I might have known
you'd grow these stones
deep in your ears
I've watched your cells
divide themselves
to build these cysts
these otoliths

I know what I know
I know what I know
now that I know what I know that I know
how do I know that I know?

remove the sky
remove the sky
to keep the sky from falling
and fill your ears
with what you hear
from me but don't believe
where we exist in otoliths
