lyrics

Black Box

I called off the search today
Packed my black box dreams away
There is not some missing piece
You are not some mystery
Rummaged through each word I knew
Wasn’t even one that made it through

You are just a stranger, I am just a ghost
There is no remainder, nothing left to know

There’s no book of why
No secret diary in the sky
Time to set your decoder down and let it slide
Just say good-bye

Where does all that’s unsaid live?
Can I go and visit it?
Somewhere on the moon? Somewhere undersea?
Somewhere up so high
The air’s too thin to breathe?

There’s no book of why
No secret diary in the sky
Time to set your decoder down and let it slide
Just say good-bye

The heart’s a brutal force
No set anchor, no set course
Mutinied and lost at sea
You’re not coming back for me
