Nothing Holds You Here

I'm leaving you today
said the words on the page
and forever recited inside her cage

She tells herself its nothing
nothing but a tear
but when she takes a step
nothing holds her here

Behind a desk he sits and sweats
for the clock to unwind
took the first job that he could find

He tells himself its nothing
just a well paying career
but when he dreams at night
nothing holds him here

restless and uncertain
I cut off all my strings
with the fears that a new town can bring

on narrow beams with loose seams
I begin to disappear
quivering in the dark
as nothing holds me here

the past rests in the copper light
of evening debris
the future waits so patiently
for you to free

so spread out your arms
into the atmosphere
weightless and clear
nothing holds you here
