Stay here, stay in the moment
Where the blooming of spring never ends
Let's go down by the willow tree
Roll with the hills 'till we make our ascent

All I imagined is all that I see
Gardens of flowers and warm summer breeze
There's a place where no trouble is seen
Everything's perfect
But it's all just a dream that I have when I sleep
Through a winter that never ends

Open, open your eyes to
A world of all that can sadden your heart
Color absent from all I see
Skies are grey and the streetlights are dark
Lost in a sea of sad faces and hearts who claim
Eye for eye, tooth for tooth
With words far beyond reproof
Still I remain unconvinced

All these years, we've hoped and we've dreamed
For a final escape, but to no avail
All I hear... the infinite buzzing of vanity's lips
Forming words for the eager in ear

There's a man reciting the words of his god
In a room full of pliable hearts
Each word, teaming with fire
Consumes any reason that's lingering near
Every word will precede a great cheer
To affirm that the problem could never lie here
And on goes the shifting of blame

What I wouldn't give to go back to that place
Just to feel the warmth of the sun shining down on my face
The smell of young roses in bloom
I'd gladly spend the rest of my days in that afternoon

I can't bear to look at another sad face
In this town riddled with fear
Close your eyes, we'll make our escape
Shake the dust off your feet
Dry the last of your bitter tears.
