"Glitches" lyrics - EVERY TIME I DIE

(Jordan Buckley / Keith Buckley / Daniel Davidson / Steven Micciche / Andy Williams)

So long to young love, I've anchored my heart
Farewell to small joys, I've burned down the bar
I'm changing my name, so I don't do no harm
Some say it's vanity, some say it's charm

No levels, still the same old devils

Frightened of fear, a servant of time
Kidnapped the queen, I have angered the hive

Snuffed out the star with celestial winds
Ended a cycle that started again
I stopped going out, they kept coming in
Was I saving my soul or saving my skin?

No levels, still the same old devils

Can't hold it close, can't let it go
Prisons and basements in slick model homes

I'm just a day-tripper on sacred terrain
My transformation went from mangled to tame
I don't feel different but I don't feel the same
I'm afloat with an ear to the ground

I built a fortress with some books and a phrase
I felt some heat, so I came out of the haze
I saw the end and I was truly afraid
I have begged, but I'm still not allowed

It's a trap
Lay the bait
Catch the rat

Flew home and left the unknown in the lurch
Kept finding bodies, I called off the search
Went to a hymn from a funeral dirge
Church in the hospital, dog in the church

No levels, still the same old devils

Shepherd me back
This time I know
I don't know nothing
I'm not in control

Mindful, but gutless
There's no need to panic
