Running in circles round the borderline
The earth is tearing as we fall behind
Our memories bleed as they give the sign
We know, but don't hear their cries

We dream of burning buildings
We're feeling numb and empty
And the times we fall asleep
We're still dreaming wide awake
And we know that it's, we know that it's not right

Ohhhh, ohhh, ohh, ohh

Dripping and dropping falls the cyanide
Raining in our eyes tonight
Angels watch as we stare at the sky
We're chasing fireflies to steal their light
While slowly going blind

We dream of burning buildings
We're feeling numb and empty
And the times we fall asleep
We're still dreaming wide awake
And we know that it's, we know that it's not right
Still we give it all away
And turn another page
In a story that's deceiving
Yet we know it's just beginning
But the times we look inside
We'll make it right somehow
Oh we're crying out

Ohhhh, ohhh, ohh, ohh
Ohhhh, ohhh, ohh, ohh oh oh

We're drifting far away
We're drifting far away
So we'll sleep and sleep and never wake
We're drifting far, so far away...
