All the world's a stage, and the people are just players
Living life within a maze, searching for the pot of gold
Chasing shooting stars to find out they're just fireflies
Or the blinkers of the cars, in the traffic jam we sit, lost and cold

Savoring what's left, why a knife instead of spoon?
What remains are just bereft, sitting lonely in the jar
Wanting freedom, seeking life, but never taking off the shackles
Pressed between the bars and glass, only hoping for a breath, so

Rest your head
Cause the days keep getting longer and the nights just fade away
Kneel by your bed
And keep your faith in God and just hope
That you don't slip into the darkness


She's got an angel's face, but with a demon trapped
Inside this holy place, sitting in a darkened room
He's innocent and young, but afraid of
Everything he might become, all the prophesies are true, so


Rest your head
Cause the days keep getting longer and the nights just fade away
Kneel by your bed
And keep your faith in God and just hope
That you don't slip into the darkness


It's all a struggle in the end, that we fight to live
But do we live to fight? And what is it to you?
To leave me helpless in the dark, don't try to comfort me
Because I know that comfort lies in what is never true, so


Rest your head
Cause the days keep getting longer and the nights just fade away
Kneel by your bed
And keep your faith in God and just
Rest your head
Cause the days keep getting longer and the nights just fade away
Kneel by your bed
And keep your faith in God and just hope
That you don't slip into the darkness
