about

“Only So” is a prayer for resolution, both globally and personally. The song builds from a quiet, almost defeated tone to a full band prayer for a reconvening of loved ones. “Only So” indicates a breaking point; “there is only so much I can take of this destruction;” we are facing a time of dire need, of inflammation, of destruction. Recognizing this time, Bon attempts to plead with it; when can we grow beyond this? When is enough really enough?

lyrics

Maybe they like me tired
I can do that for them
When my eyes cross
I feel so lost
If I keep it in

Now it’s day time
And I’m leaving home
To try something new
Why’d I feel like I’m a liar?
Well I said nothing true

There’s only so much ti-ime I’m willing to waste
There’s only so much destruction that I can take

It’s a tuesday
I’ve been out late
Thinking about home
I know that you’re not the talking type
But I thought you’d grown

The world’s on fire, I’ll leave the light on
I want to sleep in the day
I’d rather be lost than a loner
Wish I had a choice any-way

There’s only so much I can take of this destruction
Though I have it down, maybe you see how much I’m broken
I want you back, I want my family around me
I want you back, I want my family around me
I want you back, I want my family around me
