Another day dies in the world I've made
and it's a tragic and unsung passing
The zero-sum game of the time I've left
claims another victim
Looking at all of the things I broke
and the verses of songs unsung
Thinking that things could be different
if I'd only tried
Hands trembling, sweat breaking on this brow
Exhausted now, but the nightmares just won't let me sleep

Another night falls on the world you've made
and it's as black as a hate-filled heart
Strangle the love and reject the call
to rebuild this place
Encourage the strong to deny the weak
as you callously play your part
Devour the pain of the ones you've hurt
and spit it in their face
Hands shaking, tears welling in these eyes
I turn away, but the visions still persist

[CHORUS] How far we've strayed from supposed to be
We've chosen black instead of light
There's something else here for you and me
if we're prepared to fight

A new day dawns on the world we've made
and it's filled with fear and wonder
The way it plays out will be up to us,
and somehow I'm still hopeful

Still standing, resolve within my heart
Take these broken arms and build
[CHORUS]
How far we've strayed (x2)
There's something else (x2)
