lyrics

I can make a home anywhere I go
and much like my last name - it's barely relative
we took a grand adventure across the United States
we never knew where we were going
but I liked to navigate
getting lost was something special - something to celebrate
it was never about the destination
it was about getting safe
still not sure where I come from
my hometown is a womb
but if a home is where you're most comfortable
my home is always you
I know monsters exist
I've seen them through these haunted eyes
and I don't see well these days
but the visions won't subside
I mapped a new beginning for 3000 miles
don't matter where we are now
as long as we can breathe
from the Gulf Coast to the Middle of Nowhere
back to the ghosts that called us back in fear
hiding in notebooks, videogames, and your career
I tried to pass the time waiting for that moment to arrive
we were born with this innate sense of danger
always running from something
until the universe surrendered
we got safe
oh how that cycle dangled from the rearview mirror
we ought never look back
we don't look straight
we must go forward
them's the rules
that's how we played the game
it was a grand adventure
it was the most clever escape
now I'm that rabid vixen
I got this family curse in my teeth
I really oughtta hold it hostage
for I fear it's hereditary
are you a survivor
or do you feel like a victim
do you seek accountability
or do you crave retribution
this is our home
we deserve to feel safe
I promise to always protect you
I will do whatever it takes
