it is a constant apprehension.
cutting this smile into wishful thinking.
i am no longer a cycle in time.
and i can no longer press rewind.
thrice witnessed the coming of christ.
a birth of angels setting fire to mind.
stay calm, focus and steady the pace.
thrice witnessed the coming of change.

how delicate do you think she can be?
leave her treading in water with porcelain envy.
bury that dream as far as the scene it once was.
kiss the idea goodbye thats shes really in love.

our chariot awaits to take us away.
or you can stay and wonder what it would be like living this mistake.
our chariot awaits to take us away.
or you can leave and know what it feels like living this mistake.

your own tears mean nothing now.
the shell of a man and the cowards smile.
and while denial sets a beautiful scene.
the director sees what you really mean.
a fatigued audience will no longer bite.
thrice the chance to get this right.
make no mistakes just stay and wait.
wishful thinking that it is never too late.

how delicate do you think he can be?
leave him treading in water with porcelain memories.
bury that dream as far as the scene it once was.
kiss the idea goodbye thats hes really in love.

our chariot awaits to take us away.
or you can stay and wonder what it would be like living this mistake.
our chariot awaits to take us away.
or you can leave and know what it feels like living this mistake.

whats the meaning of this?
our chariot awaits to take us away.
or you can stay and wonder what it would be like living this mistake.
our chariot awaits to take us away.
or you can leave and know what it feels like living this mistake.

whats the meaning of this?
