A song about leaving old fears and insecurities behind.

lyrics

Verse 1
Come with me. I’ll take you down
into the darkest parts of my mind.
I’ll walk you through the corridors
and tunnels I’ve hidden inside.

Just don’t leave me alone there.
I’m already so afraid.
So just hold my hand.
I’ll let you see it all.

Chorus
Let the walls come down.
Let this prison cell turn to rust.
Let the windows break
Let the foundation decay to dust.
Let me destroy my identity,
and fall away with you.
Let me lose all my memories
so I can start anew.

Verse 2
Come with me. We’ll walk along
all these deserted streets.
But the darkness will be closing in soon
so keep your eyes on your feet.

Cause that’s when the ghosts come out
and haunt me in my dreams.
They float all around me
like forgotten memories.

Chorus
Let the walls come down.
Let this prison cell turn to rust.
Let the windows break
Let the foundation decay to dust.
Let me destroy my identity,
and fall away with you.
Let me lose all my memories
so I can start anew.
