New Vernacular

Slow Talk

Track #4 from the “New Vernacular” EP

Something’s been holding me down
The dust in the air at home
So heavy I might drown
Coupled with that nine to five 
And recurrent family life
It’s left my wings clipped until now

But I’ve found a brand new place
Hunkered down, jettisoned the weight
Just try hold me down now
Just try hold me down
I’ve spent my time
Anchored to the ground

I can’t contemplate
All the things I can’t say
Eroded through my native tongue
Can’t comprehend my faith

I want to know what amazing means
Bring me back to life again
make it breathtaking
I want to know what amazing means
Open up the skies
The traveller has arrived

Something’s been holding me down
Something’s been holding me down

The dust in the air at home
So heavy I might drown, yeah
Something’s been holding me down
Down, down, down

I can’t contemplate
All the things I can’t say
Eroded through my native tongue
Can’t comprehend my faith

Maybe this new language
Will help me find my way
The only words that I have left
Are the ones that describe pain
