Outline In Color – Water In The Desert Lyrics (feat. Jonathan Grimes)

None of you seem to understand
I’m not locked in here with you
You’re locked in here with me

Why do I need this so badly?
Is this my act’s finale?
It comes to me like water in death valley
The abyss stares right through me

Where did the last five years of my life go?
Where did they go?
How did I end up in this hole?
Adorned in thorns and bones
The child in me, overexposed
My eyes, oh, my eyes

And then the water dried up in the ocean
And then I knew I was drowning
In this world where we are grains of sand
A drop of water is all we have
So we savour it all
Until it’s

I think you’ve been afraid for your whole life
When people looking in from the outside
Impending peril, I hear them drumming
Black lungs and beaten sons
I know what’s coming
I have never been so alone
This life is yours to atone
Too young to face demise

Will your values see the next sunrise?

Why won’t you answer me?
You f*cking coward
Get on your knees
Why won’t you answer me?
You f*cking coward
Get on your knees

And then the water dried up in the ocean
And then I knew I was drowning
And when all the hope I had was gone
I knew I’d only last so long
And like an anchor falling from the sky
I hit the bottom

[Jonathon Grimes]
Part of the dream that’s due in time
They’re building bridges for us now
Why do we think we’re living a lie?
The fear, the regret
For lives we have left behind
Not knowing what’s next in time

We’re done running
This time we’re going to stand our ground
No respect
No hope
No home
We’re screaming out loud
We’re done running
This time we’re going to stand our ground
No respect
No hope
No home
We’re screaming out loud
