Can you tell me how come everything makes sense
when it's miles away and simplified?
Can you tell me how come everything makes sense
when we paint it in black and white.

Will we find
and honest way back home again?
Will we find
a flag that we can fly?

Stand up!
This all we have to live for
here and now.
Stand up!
and we're never looking back.
We've forgotten how to shine alone
We've forgotten how to shine alone
living in this glimpse of paradise.

Whatever happened to the fire in our eyes? (we never lost it)
Did we give it away or sell it off? (It never faded)
This is our time so we better do it right.

We will find
an honest way back home again.
We will find
a flag that we can fly.

Stand up!
This all we have to live for
here and now.
Stand up!
and we're never looking back.
We've forgotten how to shine alone
We've forgotten how to shine alone
living in this glimpse of paradise.

I know we can't give it away.
Hey you standing by the back wall waiting for the world to change.
You've gotta wave goodbye to the past tense baby 'cause
it's time for change

Stand up!
This all we have to live for
here and now.
Stand up!
and we're never looking back.
We've forgotten how to shine alone
We've forgotten how to shine alone
living in this glimpse of paradise.
