lyrics

Holding Your Head Up

I will waste away these walls till the rain don’t come
Pacing and writing on the floor
I hate to hear the thoughtful words didn’t help at all
I’m holding your head up
Holding your head up

Cartoons of the recent wars hang on my walls
While this town is evidently talking tall
Now and then the feeling comes and it breaks my fall
Holding your head up
Holding your head up

Through snow that leaves the faces blurred I have feared it all
She’s taking a break from taking my thoughts
But mindless salvation is what just gets me off
Holding your head up
Holding your head up

If this is an end all, then where are my eyes
Where did my arms go, there’s pain in my sides
If this is a close-up, then where are the pores
If this is my anger, I want more

Through snow that leaves the faces blurred I have feared it all
She’s taking a break from taking my thoughts
But mindless salvation is what just gets me off
Holding your head up
Holding your head up

Holding your head up
Holding your head up
