Why breathe a word

When no one needs to know

Why say a thing

To another living soul

Let us pay no mind

To a world that seems unkind

For here is something to shelter

Now more than ever

Our shadow endeavours

Shadow endeavours

Shadow endeavours

Why leave us open

And naked to the sun

Why draw their fire

That they’ll surely reign upon us

Let us pay no mind

To their words and bitter lines

For here’s something to shelter

And now much more than ever

These shadow endeavours

Shadow endeavours

Much more than ever

Only ever happened to me once

It doesn’t come again

I think somebody left me here

Afraid and lonely

A long time ago.
