Buying time is about not wanting to give up, while reality sets in

Starting with this one, we'll give away a track each month, up to the release of the album, Not like bones, in november


I'm buying time - selling parts
It's a dancing charade, on a breaking heart
But I'm buying time
and I brought flowers, to the open grave
of another day
with you

I step into the void
and watch myself suspended in the moment
while postponing thoughts I'll never share with you
I step into the void
staying clear of any heavy conversation
pretending to just get along
with you

I'm buying time - selling parts
it's getting late, it's getting dark
but I'm buying time
performing tricks at the early grave
of another day
with you
