Caravels – New Zealand Lyrics

I dreamt last night that I had fled
And woke up chasing sleep again
The blankets taped up to the blinds
Now droop and dangle from one side
The city’s still in rust
It’s still chewing up all that I love
The city’s still in rust
It’s still chewing up all that I love
Don’t want the sun to glare through
The sprawl wants me to stick
And strangle me with it’s streets
It wants me to acknowledge it
Thank it for all it’s done
Like a surface to stand on
Like a surface to stand on
But I don’t owe it anything
I grew up faster than I wanted to
But I don’t owe it anything
I grew up faster than I wanted to
I sprouted from a stem and bloomed
Despite the light that leaks into my room
One day I swear I’ll flee
I’ll escape this town
I’ll drag it’s chains with me
Sundered from the ground
