There's an image
Running through my head at night
Imposing on every thought and keeping me from sleep
It's an image
Of myself at seventeen
Screaming "your sincerity
Masked everything we once believed"
Can I retrace my steps back to that place?
I knew the truth
Well, I knew the truth, yeah
I won't replace my heart for warmer days
I know the truth
And you know it too

While winter takes its toll
In hotels and hospitals
I'm still waiting here
For something to believe
While useless wars are waged
And loyalty's misplaced
I'm still waiting here
For something to believe

Locked between the vast vacant past and hollow future
This is the present tense
For failed accomplishments
It's a generation
(It's a generation)
How did we get here?
How did we ever get so lost?

Can I retrace my steps back to that place?
I knew the truth
Well, I knew the truth, yeah
I won't replace my heart for warmer days
I know the truth
And you know it too

While winter takes its toll
In hotels and hospitals
I'm still waiting here
For something to believe
While useless wars are waged
And loyalty's misplaced
I'm still waiting here
For something to believe in

Go,
Run for your life
Cause in the end
Gonna catch up someday
Get you someday

While winter takes its toll
In hotels and hospitals
I'm still waiting here
For something to believe
While useless wars are waged
And loyalty's misplaced
I'm still waiting here
For something to believe in

I'm not waiting anymore.
