In the changing of times
The child in you dies
The tide and the shoreline compromise
You can't tread the sky
We had science to get by
You and I... lied

Own up
The past is the place where you look, not now
Set aside the life you watched decay

You act too old
Contain resentment far too full to hold
Do you remember freezing cold
The second where it grows weak
Have we shed our skin for this?

Ink and numbers, they trace around our hands
With rates and taxes
And like a lamb will follow the heard
Scream when slaughtered

As if you caught on something redeeming
You felt safe for the first time in a dream world
And I tried to compromise
Ascending the impulse to run

Listen when I say
That you're losing every level of yourself
From infant to adult
You'll see how it adds up

Reckless endeavor
You made the mistake of saying never
Surrender your hands to them
And play the victim
And play the victim now

As if you caught on something redeeming
You felt safe for the first time in a dream world
And I tried to compromise
Ascending the impulse to run

In the changing of times
The child in you dies
The tide and the shoreline compromise
You can't tread the sky
We had science to get by
And you and I... lied

Will someone change us back?
Will someone change us back?

My eyes won't see what's in front of me
My eyes won't see what's in front of me

MY EYES WON'T SEE WHAT'S IN FRONT OF ME
