A friend experienced something that no-one should. This song talks about the hope that, one day, they may transcend it.


You don’t want to grow, any more
There’s no need to grow, any more
Who wants to be an adult anyway?
Look what they did to you

You were happy as a child
Before the nightmare began
If only you could get back
You could change everything

Now you’re trying to get clean, where you’ve been
No-one should have to go
You’re trying to get clean, what you’ve seen
No-one should have to know

If only you could, know why
It felt so sickly sweet
Each new man reminds you still
Of that one man you’d like to kill

Waiting such a time such a long time gonna be a
Fine time when you finally get your peace of mind
Today’s gonna be a brighter day
When you get a chance to move ahead and let it all fade away


from EP 'Time and Space', released November 3, 2012
