Lyrics:

Darkness was everywhere – I didn’t understand
Felt myself sinking – sinking in the sand
Thought it was real – but it was in my head
Turns out what’s real – was something else instead

These are the stories – that we tell ourselves
These are the words – that we believe will help
The deeper we go – the colder it gets
The longer we fall – the older we get

It isn’t so easy – to climb out of a hole
It’s time to stop digging – when you find you’re in a hole
You’re losing the thread – the one that takes you back
But you don’t know who to turn to – to pick up the slack

These are the stories – that we tell ourselves
These are the words – that we believe will help
The deeper we go – the colder it gets
The longer we fall – the older it gets

The stories we tell - to conjure a spell
The stories we tell - to conjure ourselves
The stories we tell - to conjure a spell
The stories we tell - to conjure ourselves

Darkness was everywhere – I didn’t understand
Felt myself sinking – sinking in the sand
Thought it was real – but it was in my head
Turns out what’s real – was something else instead

These are the stories – that we tell ourselves (etc.)
