casting lines lyrics – jack’s mannequin

“casting lines”

you learn to run, you learn to race through life, this unforgiving pace
these lines we’re tracing to the truth
and stepping over endless cracks, i navigate these crooked paths
but all my roads lead back to you

and who are we to argue fate and who is time to make us wait
i’m standing here with nothing left to prove

and we’re still coming home, a thread through the unknown
yea, all the lines we cast into forever
got tangled like some wreckage in the road
a road we walked alone but all the time that’s p*ssed held us together
and all the lines we cast will bring us home
it’s a long way but i’m coming home

all the time i kept the score
i never grasped what love was for
you, you always gave me what i need
to know what’s true and still ask why
to break the bonds and raise the sky
you tear the soil from the sea

but who am i to argue fate
and who are you to walk away
i’m standing here with nothing left to prove

and we’re still coming home,
a thread through the unknown
all the lines we cast into forever
got tangled like some wreckage in the road
a road we walked alone
but all the time that’s p*ssed held us together
and all the lines we cast will bring us home
it’s a long way but i’m coming home to you

who are we to argue fate and who am i to think this way
i’m standing here with nothing left to lose

and we’re still coming home,
a thread through the unknown
yea, all the lines we cast into forever
will come back when the weather hits the road
a road we walked alone,
but all the time that’s p*ssed held us together
and all the lines we cast will bring us home
it’s a long way but i’m coming home

you learn to run, you learn to race through life, this unforgiving pace
these lines we’re tracing to the truth
