A Softer War (feat. The Void Pacific Choir)

Moby

See how caution ruined me
From the person I could never be
Fighting truths I'd never know
Finding truths of a failing home
Every year thought I'd be through
Live a life that was finally true
I fell so hard back to what I knew
I was always lost to you
I was always lost to you

Come on sit here my sweet son
Come on sit here in the sun
If you like you can always stay
The academy won't turn you away
No one knows the truth of me
Never know what I can't see
Want to stay here find a home
All I want is to be less alone
All I want is to be less alone

Living on this lonesome road
Years are gone not going slow
I was one of a thousand boys
Killing off his love for noise
Driving lost and going far
Setting sights on a failing star
I was lost and wanting more
I was nothing more than loss
I was nothing more than loss
I was nothing more than loss

See me out by the empty way
See the struggle when it's locked away
See me fail when you cut the string
All the pain that a loss can bring
See me burn in a suburban forge
See me quiet in a softer war
See me fading in the brittle noise
See me lost with all the hollow boys
See me hoping like this time it would
End with something like a final good
See me fail when you cut the string
We never knew what a loss could bring

I gave my lifetime away
I gave my lifetime away
I gave my lifetime away
I gave my lifetime away
I gave my lifetime away
I gave my lifetime away
I gave my lifetime away
I gave my lifetime away
