lyrics

Cold wind, sharp knives
Dance rave fireflies
He could feel the neon
That the stars were letting out that night

Breathes in, radiates
Lungs start to glow and ache
Let's the thing that kills him
He lets it keep him wide awake

The moon starts singing
The wolves join in
The owls' attention is all on him
He starts to suffocate
But the poison keeps him wide awake

Then the owl said
Walden, it'll be okay

And the stars hummed
Give in, it's okay to feel the pain

And the trees sighed
Listen, how the forest sings your name

Oh, the owl said
Walden, everything will be okay

Canvas skyline
Bass heavy white pines
Birds leave painted trails
As they glide under the starlit night

Head starts buzzing from
Musical uranium
Tries to sing the tune but
He can't find his voice tonight

A pond reforms and shows his mind
In silver ripples what he's leaving behind
He wants the pain to end
But the poison keeps its grip on him

Then the owl said
Walden, it'll be okay

And the stars hummed
Give in, it's okay to feel the pain

And the trees sighed
Listen, how the forest sings your name

Oh, the owl said
Walden, everything will be okay

And his mom said
Walden, it'll be okay

And his dad cried
Please God, take my baby's pain away

And the nurse called
Listen, I think he's starting to awake

Oh, his mom said
Walden, everything will be okay
