advancing an agenda to my own benefit
it involves introspection and twelve easy steps
at some point there will be a reason
revealed to us all in a moment of truth
but until then, it's only us living
with the day-to-day knowledge that we've got nothing to lose
and so we'll strike back against the cops and the system
end up in uncompromosing positions
between now and then do we die or stay hopeful
of another night that captures our hearts the same way
but it's lost so quickly in the shroud of authority
said "never forget" but now we can't see so clearly
this isn't what i was looking for
(we all wanted so much more)
the weight of everyday crushes what little we have
soon enough we'll have said all we can say
and when we let our relationships fall apart
or consider the ones we never start
then the white flag goes up and we'll surrender
maybe the way we're living now isn't the answer
and then and only then will we see what we're made of
something more than everything we thought that we hated
etched in our minds is a longing for sunsets
a glimmering of love found in the comfort of distance
this isn't what i was looking for
(we all wanted so much more)
