​One By One

This song is by Courtney Swain and appears on the album Claws of the Beasts Inside (2013).

Walking down a busy street
Skyscrapers funnel a storm
Winds stand me still

Bright green plants are losing leaves
The water churns a poison stew
We're dying one by one

While I'm stuck scared inside my bed
I forget I don't know the name
Of this fragile vessel tethered to the genes inside my head
I'm sure I'm dying now
One by one I'm counting down

When I stopped to look around
I saw the brushstrokes of clouds
Waiting to cry

Is it worth the long face
When airplanes crash
Waste is trashed
We're dying, dying
Dying one by one

While I'm stuck scared inside my bed
I forget I don't know the name
Of this fragile vessel tethered to the genes inside my head
I'm sure I'm dying now
One by one I'm counting down
