I know it sounds better in the long run
When your words and symbols stack up into the night
But hands are broken, folded like a steeple crossed by a single word

The song is the same: a simple word transcribed to hold your faith
We mass as shadows: light as dust, and silent to further the days
Hold your frown down, please

I know it sounds better, but there’s only so many good things I want
Can cross without losing our faith at night
To guide them through paralyze, so we read between the lines

The song is the same as ever: the sun slash memory of sunrise on your face
That reminds us that spring will kill the summer nights to get through the winter days
Swaying with daylight and giving in to what we think is right

As the shadows collect as the dust seen floating between her eyes
And you’ll reach out to keep her safe from harm
And all, all alone; we’re all alone

When you can’t see you’re on your own, you can’t see on your own
When you have nothing to believe in
Then you’ll find you have something to scream about
