I've sat and watched this city crumble
Just as it was being built
And the bigger it gets the less it's thought of
I'm just scared of losing all that we have left

And the colors of these roads are matching the rainy sky
I'm too blind to see what's really here in front of our eyes
And I hope someday this will all reverse
And send us back to the times before
Before we grew up and lost the novelty of
Clear blue skies and climbing trees
Can't you see what our lies have come to be
Can't you see what our lies have come to be

We used to just make friends so easily
Never judging anyone was how it's meant to be
Our parents were always heroes in our eyes
But TV and magazines soon changed our minds
And the colors of these roads are matching the rainy sky
We're too blind to see what's really here in front of our eyes
And I hope someday this will all reverse
And send us back to the times before
Before we grew up and lost the novelty of
Clear blue skies and climbing trees
Can't you see what our lies have come to be
Can't you see what our lies have come to be

I watched people I loved turn into rust
Wearing almost nothing they go out after dusk
As if to be accepted you need to sell yourself
They need to learn there's much more to this world
They need to learn there's much more to this world

And the colors of these roads are matching the rainy sky
We're too blind to see what's really here in front of our eyes
And I hope someday this will all reverse
And send us back to the times before
Before we grew up and lost the novelty of
Clear blue skies and climbing trees
Can't you see what our lies have come to be
Can't you see what our lies have come to be
