Keep me posted on the up side baby
So I can forget all these bad times maybe
Well there are things I’ll always regret
Synchronized it with a fall from grace now
I can’t believe it I forgot your face somehow
Well I swore I’d never forget
The ins and outs but never outside showing
Thats all it is it doesn’t seem worth knowing
but its always stuck in my head

By the waters of Babylon we sat and wept
remembering the songs we used to sing
when we believed with all our hearts
but doubt and darkness did their part
we were condemned from the start

Take me break me build me up again this
Vicous cycle seems to have no end I
Well I can’t see a light up ahead
If what they say is true then where does faith go
it lies somewhere between the dead and hopeful
well they are the only ones left to believe
I can feel the fear its coursing through me
Disbelief is only half the story
and the rest goes better unsaid

By the waters of Babylon we sat and wept
remembering the songs we used to sing
when we believed with all our hearts
but doubt and darkness did their part
we were condemned from the start

I’ve never been one to call myself strong
but I know what I want
and I know I’d be wrong if I said I was too young
to young to know the difference
these words betray me still
its just something I can’t fell
and I fear I never will
But these words are all I have
they recount the broken path
that falls into the darkness

And if that day should come
We’ll look up to the sun
and finally be free
And when that day does come
I hope ill be the one to
finally believe

By the waters of Babylon we sat and wept
remembering the songs we used to sing
when we believed with all our hearts
but doubt and darkness did their part
we were condemned from the start
