POLARIS – Overflow Lyrics


POLARIS – Overflow Lyrics

I’ve been lost, alone in a crowd
Can’t remember when the silence got so loud

We believe, but what do we know?
All the things we bottle up
Will one day start to overflow

Where do I shelter when it’s raining inside?
No peace and quiet from the noise in my mind
I don’t bend, I break, I can’t go on this way
It kills to hear you say
“I can’t stand to see you like this”

We took a chance, a shot in the dark
Let it echo like the rattle of a hollow heart

I thought I had everything that meant something to me
I wasn’t ready to face what I want, what I need
Now I need to escape
The grass is greener, they told me, if you wait

I feel the lifeblood freezing in my veins
The antidote is just the poison by another name

Where do I shelter when it’s raining inside?
No peace and quiet from the noise in my mind
I don’t bend, I break, I can’t go on this way
It kills to hear you say
“I can’t stand to see you like this
‘Cause it’s more than I can take”

The earth is spinning much too fast for me
The air is thick and it makes me sick to breathe
I never had the clarity of mind
To recognise that time was never on my side

(I am not what I think, I am not what I feel)
I’m addicted, afflicted and I’m dying to heal, I said
I lost years to future fears
(This can’t happen again, it cannot happen again)
Now I’m fearing the worst
I’ll break my habits if they don’t break me first

But still I just can’t seem to catch my breath
And the things I love, I hold so tight
I strangle them to death

Where do I shelter when it’s raining inside?
No peace and quiet from the noise in my mind
I don’t bend, I break, I can’t go on this way
It kills to hear you say
“I can’t stand to see you like this
‘Cause it’s more than I can take”
