Текст A Lot Like Birds — Divisi

You told me to smile because at least we’re both alive, and I smiled just for you
And there’s truth in what you said, but I can’t clear the mantra, chanting, singing in my head
It tells me life’s a brittle bone — it says the meat of life is death

These are dashes on a timeline, we’re just segments of a dash
Hardly present now, not built to last
All the magic, every moment, dies and turns into the past, to be forgotten as the line expands

I hope the two of us are bound together, eternally entwined
I hope the waves we make swim out forever, echoing you and I

But doesn’t everybody hope for something, knowing nothing stands a chance at lasting?
Pleading our cases that we’re too important, spending our seconds angry at their passing
But doesn’t everybody hope for something, knowing none of us are meant to make it?
Blindly believing that we’re the exception, beating our chests and screaming I am sacred

But I know, we were made to be unmade, tied with strings designed to fray
I just want our knot together, it’s holding now but not forever
Someone or thing has got to pay, it’s given too much to take away
I just want a legacy — I just want it all to never fade
Don’t we all arrive at the same place where we began?
