Cogwork

about

"Cogwork" is a dive into the shallow end of depression, where functionality starts to subside, but you're not quite sure which realm you're visiting.

"Cogwork" will appear on Nalani's upcoming album "Goodbye, Sixteen."

lyrics

The sound you make is biting,
my heart to pieces, writhing
Awake, away, the window
to fly open, the long way down.

And I know how to go through motions
but something in the cogwork won't let me progress

The burning pierce of freedom
with pokes and prods, no reason
The cage, a staged emotion
to want to go back to that down

And I know how to go through the motions
but something in the cogwork won't let me progress

forward
to the edge of my time
to the edge of my life

And I know how to go through the motions
but something in the cogwork won't let me progress
