Whoever you are, I don’t know You gave me my time, then let go. To find the words to what I see, Not what I hear, that’s how we believe. Oh, the things we believe. Let’s pull this train wreck aside. To let all the grudges pass us by. Are you tired of the tension between? Do you want something new, something to improve, cause we want it too. I only know, everything that I’ve been told You gave me hope That these lies weren’t meant to be shown. You keep on pushing for war, It’s nothing you haven’t seen before. War will just turn to regret. Even for the man that’s behind the desk, But he hasn’t thought of that yet. I only know, everything that I’ve been told, How could I know When these lies weren't meant to be shown. Although this is bigger than me, Somehow it feels the same. The meaning of forgive and forget It hasn’t happened yet (repeat)

Close your eyes, are you sleeping? Or are you just living through a dream, Are you happy now? There's chemicals that stop the feeling But the feeling will never disappear, You just push it aside. Life hits a bottom line, as a test if you'll be fine, cause I am not alone! Close your eyes, are you sleeping again? Or are you just seeing what you need, Got to stop right now before.... Life hits a bottom line, This is not a waste of time, I am not alone! I feel like I am the only one But I know right from wrong, Somehow I have to move along. Gather up these feelings And you too would probably go insane, The world we live in is all that we have to blame. Close your eyes, are you sleeping again? Feels my world is coming to an end, It's got to stop right now. I feel like I am the only one But I know right from wrong, Somehow I have to move along. Do you feel like you are the only one, But you know right from wrong? Alone you'll have carry on. Gather up these feelings and you to would probably go insane, The world we live in is all that we have to blame.

For the voices of the weak For the voices of the low I'll make way for you to speak While I'm paving the road that leads back home. We send you to your grave Out of mind and out of site I'll follow you there, and I will take good care. We are born to be afraid Of everything we know And we are happy there It seems without a care. For the voices of the weak For the voices of the low I'll make way for you to speak While I'm paving the road that leads back home...

This place will never be the same, The lives inside these walls Have all been re-arranged. Can I just hold on to what I have In front of my eyes for one day more? Now five minutes seems long, What you want holds on to you way too strong. It makes me want to memorize the things I see In front of my eyes after they fall, Now I have to walk and pass through it all... I'll say my goodbyes to this place that's alive, What's in front of my eyes, will be stuck in my mind. I'll say my goodbyes when the music let's me stay, So I wake up to find my own personal space. To think of that night when you stopped counting time And your life felt just fine, don't turn away to save your eyes. I sat by that light, with a pen beside my life, No influence tonight, the last time you'll want to memorize.

These machines, they won't tell a lie. If that’s what you want to believe, its true, The truth’s all they’ll say to you (So come on) These machines, they won't tell a lie. I wish I could have seen the day, Before all of this had changed. There’s life beyond these borders, As our attention gets shorter. Even if these inventions will make us faster. It’s not a future that I admire. Hey, hey you! If you're not dreaming, Then come along and dream with me, cause I’ve got a story to tell. There’s more to believe than what this world can say. Life is built by desire, simple minds make it higher. When these machines come and go away, Then that’s a future that I admire. What are we all waiting for? Hold yourself up, cause we’re all going down (repeat) That’s (all that) what I’ve been waiting for.
