When I try to walk on water
And try to follow the steps of my father
It's so easy to forget the lessons I have learned
Should we listen to the children?
Take a look at what we're building
It's so easy to destroy the world in which we live

It keeps me up late at night when I'm staring at the ceiling
Deconstructing everything that I believe in
Trying to hold on to these fading memories
Today is not the same as it was when I was younger
Is that a storm on its way? I hear thunder
Wake me up before I slip into a dream

Have we tried to walk on water?
Are you sinking as it gets harder?
It's so easy to believe when you're watching your TV
We should listen to the children
Try to feel what they are feeling
It's so easy to destroy this world in which we live

Growing old, late at night, when I'm staring at the ceiling
Trying to remember everything that I believe in
Should I stop creating brand new memories?
Today is not the same as it was when I was younger
The world is burning down and we're slipping under
Who will save us and try to set the people free

When we try to walk on water
And try to follow the steps of our fathers
It's so easy to forget the lessons we have learned

    My thoughts are that he's obviously depressed and cannot sleep at night. I'm guessing he lost someone in the past and those memories, which are fading, caused him to be an insomniac of sorts.

    I'd love to hear others thoughts on this song!
