Fractured Map

She’s sitting alone in a darkened room,
no one to tell it’ll be alright soon
is it all in her mind her vacancy
is there something missing only they can see
But is she old enough to know better
Though she’s really writing them a runaway letter
She just wants them to know she’s gonna be alright
She’s just searching something in the dead of night

cos now its time to light the fuse
shes waited too long for a change of view

And its almost time to show the world, her pain
She’s held it close for far too long, deep inside her
But the thread is torn, a played out pawn
The dealer dealt a real bad hand, she knows
This fractured map is all she chose

Her friends and her sister are going out
Grabbing the keys to the family hatchback
Maybe she’ll go and get a new tattoo
cos its all thats really left for her to do
She’s thumbing a lift to the bus depot
And hasn’t got a plan where she wants to go
Cos its all thats in her mind that stops her,
taking risks whenever they present themselves

she’d alter paths the gods had chose
so tell her where this open highway goes

And its almost time to show the world, her pain
She’s held it close for far too long, deep inside her
But the thread is torn, a played out pawn
The dealer dealt a real bad hand, she knows
This fractured map is all she chose
And its almost time to show the world, her pain
She’s held it close for far too long, deep inside her
But the thread is torn, a played out pawn
The dealer dealt a real bad hand, she knows
This fractured map is all she chose

And its almost time to show the world, her pain
She’s held it close for far too long, deep inside her
But the thread is torn, a played out pawn
The dealer dealt a real bad hand, she knows
This fractured map is all she chose
