I've been waiting for the day
when decembers go away
never to return

Orphans of the modern age
brought (or 'bright') white where there was gray
and they can never give up

Oh, dont take this from me
I need to believe in something
I won't protest this leave
I'm falling to pieces
Oh no, someone do something

I've got one long crazy dream
heaven for our troubled teens
and anorexic girls

But it lasted 20 years
and now I'm bored to tears
and no one can wake me

[chorus x2]
Oh, the bright young things
we never sleep
we just lie down while we dream
someone do something
i'm falling to pieces
oh, what matters?
does anything?

what matters? (x4)

    General CommentHmm..I'm quite disapointed with their new cd...
    It's almost like they didn't even try.
    Makes me sad :(

    General CommentThis is one of my favorites!

    I think its generally about being young and wanting to believe that the world will change for the better even though it won't and constantly moving and dreaming and being dissapointed with the way the world is and crying for help.
