The mention of God,
Makes me strange,
The battle of words,
And the wars we wage,
And the castles of time ,
We build up straight,
Just to run out of room,
And we build sideways.

Sometimes I feel,
My blood runs cold.

And the conscious stain,
Won’t wash away,
Tell me what are we waiting for.
And the acid rain,
Right through my veins,
Tell me what are we waiting for.

And I’m catching a bird,
And it makes me feel,
Like I’m talking to her,
Through the atmosphere,
And I know that I’m right,
But can’t let go,
The beauty in flight,
And the world we know.

Sometimes I feel,
My blood runs cold.

And the conscious stain,
Won’t wash away,
Tell me what are we waiting for.
And the acid rain,
Right through my veins,
Tell me what are we waiting for.

We’re so far gone,
But we can’t let go.
We’re so far gone,
That my blood runs cold.

The conscious stain,
Won’t wash away,
Tell me what are we waiting for.

The acid rain,
Right through my veins,
Tell me what are we waiting for.
The hurricanes and tidal waves,
Tell me what are we waiting for.
The conscious stain,
Won’t wash away,
Tell me what are we waiting for.

    General CommentNo comments? Um... Obviously this song is about the environment or global warming and how no one is trying to stop it or anything. And the character doesn't want to let go of the world he remembers.

    General Commentthey are talking about how our society has become greedy. we have become obsessed with wanting more out of this planet, and ruining whatever we have (the environment) in the process: "tell me what are we waiting for"

    we think god will repair everything, but it's our planet

    instead of enjoying life, we go for more and more through "the wars we wage". we keep trying to build more and more, we'll run out of room and have to build sideways.

    basically, instead of driving faster cars and building higher buildings, enjoy the planet we have instead of ruining it. life is beautiful as it is, don't wait for more
