In the night where the wind gives its worst
Its anthem in the final burst
I watched the surface give up its head
And let its final thoughts get buried with
A growing layer of trial and error

My spines gone out with the lights
From the ice on the power lines
When everything is still and quiet
You'll hear them whispering a thousand times
The words you spoke the night you gave up hope

You saw something inferior
Fall to the ground and disappear
My spines gone out with the lights
From the ice on the power lines

But you remember when you were a child
And you ran away, but you left with a smile
As big as the sun and as high as the sky
It was cloudy out, so you stayed inside
You walked down the hall into your room
And you laid in bed and watched the moon
When you woke up you began to cry
You found that life had passed you by
That's when you started running
