Scattered Solace

about

A brand new song by Gaunt Story.

lyrics

Scattered dreams like seeds across the ground,
winds blew them away from me.
Forcing us to live under a hand,
no relief or escape from this.
All seen through a lense, another's life
a longing, unattainable.
We had these gifts to share but now all bound,
the grind just leaves you hollow.

When the things that bring you solace
are the things that no-one wants
with the crushing weight of servitude
can't pretend that nothing's wrong.

Just holding on,
just holding on.

Once more around the star, another turn.
Just further away from it
Acceptance and lies in other forms,
successes, lost relationships.
Nothing seems amiss, you have it all!
How easy to forget all this.
When you wear another's suit, it isn't you.
How can you feel your worth in it?

When the things that bring you solace
are the things that no-one wants
with the crushing weight of servitude
can't pretend that nothing's wrong.

Just holding on,
just holding on.
