A song written during what the songwriter describes as "the hardest year of my life". The lyrics document the artist's personal experience with anxiety, depression and the clarity that follows overcoming them.


Well sometimes my heart
It beats like a drum
Tearin a hole through my chest

And I close my eyes
To see whats inside
And get to the bottom of this

[Chorus 1]
When my skin turns to stone
It’s time to take me back home
But Im just not sure
Where that is anymore
And my time dont feel like my own

[Verse 2]
Sometimes my heart
It slows to a crawl
Causing my mind to go numb

My thoughts linger on
As I try to recall
Where they go and` where they come from

[Chorus 2]
When my body turns to dust
Its time to head home if I must
But Im just not sure
Where that is anymore
And my shine is starting to rust

[Verse 3]
But sometimes my heart
Finds peace in the night
Fills up with visions and dreams
And I can see past
The confusion won't last
Shit ain't as bad as it seems

[Chorus 3]
Then my heart floats like the leaves
On a wave that never recedes
And I find my self
Swimming in an ocean of health
A truth in which I still believe
