lyrics

I'm scared of my own words.
Every time I try to speak they just get worse.
I'm a finger trap.
My voice, it sounds so thin.
I'm a bundle of letters I remember when
you ripped me apart.

Now I can't stand
with you on my heart
anymore.

Then the night holds its breath,
perched beside me keeping my mind in check,
waiting for my fall.

Well I can't wait
for that call
anymore

Because I should have tried better,
I should have known.
Mountains won't move on their own.
You've gotta push, push, push, you've gotta push, push, push 'em along.

I try to be real kind.
I'm holding back kicks and cusses.
They're all on my mind.
Brother I love you.

I found the great divide
between what you want, what you get, and what you find.
Hey I'm talking to you.

Now what about these wishes?
Oh are they true
anymore?

Because I should have tried better,
I should have known.
Mountains won't move on their own.
You've gotta push, push, push, you've gotta push, push, push 'em along
