You're carving a statue of snow and you're the only one who knows how
You've got your own indecipherable language to use now
You're bending the laws of science like bending bars of steel
But your arrogance lacks confidence and betrays the way you feel
The way you feel
Running through your hands

You've built a brand new wall, recycled from before you were born
You're a noble, first-time trailblazer one path that's been well worn
So, what new ways to pout did you devise while skipping class? In the end, your actions are erased by the sands of the hourglass
The hourglass
Running through your hands

So hold on tight to what is sacred
And don't let go
Cherish everything that's precious
And don't let go
Running through your hands

Times are hard, but you're the one you must define
Self-destruct or "let it shine"
Times are hard, but you're the one who's got to know, you're carving statues out of snow

You're not different, you're just like me
We're the same
You're not different, you're just like me
We're the same
And you're ok

    General Commentthis song is so frikken upbeat, emotional and just anthemic. i play it all the time at work. personally i think it's about moving on, begining again,
    "Times are hard, but you're the one you must define
    Self-destruct or "let it shine" " it's like giving you some courage to do whatever that you need to.
