Lyrics

The Sky Is Falling

Written By: Stephen Liu

Maybe I'm just a chicken
But I think the sky is falling
If the world were to collapse
Does that mean everything's ending
Can you see the light peeking through
The clouds that once floated white
I can see that they're darkening
These drifting specks of water
Do you think they mean anything

And I am tired
'Cause I'm still trying
To hold you up
To push you down

I'm sure as hell not Atlas
But it's you I'm still supporting
Suspended on a thin wire
Alligators below snapping
Can you see your hope peeking through
For seven years I wandered
For seventy more I'm wandering
I haven't found the answers
But I'm not sure what I'm asking

And I am tired
'Cause I'm still trying
To hold you up
To push you down
And I am sick
'Cause I'm still here
To prop you up
To force you down

And it's coming
Unbalanced
The one hiding
The one exposed
Coming undone
Unraveling
The two in one
The becoming

And I am tired
'Cause I'm still trying
To hold you up
To push you down
And I am sick
'Cause I'm still here
To prop you up
To force you down
And I am through
