Track Name: Just Because You Close Your Eyes Doesn't Mean I'm Gone
Flowers in the pavement cracks, struggling to bloom
They will persevere despite trampling and abuse
Growing in the shadows they only know one truth
They don't like a sleepless night any more than you

Huddling for warmth a mother shivers in moonlight
Searching for a shelter from the elements of night
Just outside the window they wither in plain sight
We can't see beyond our own reflection long enough to fight

Just because you close your eyes doesn't mean I'm gone
Every night we dream as big as the night is long

Migrants on a sinking raft, drifting through the night
Fleeing from atrocity towards an unknown blight
Hungry, cold and sleep deprived, lack the strength to fight
Those who reach the other side are locked away and out of sight

Just because you close your eyes doesn't mean I'm gone
Talk about our brokenness until the day is gone
