This soul's a stowaway; at the heels of a gaze
Their eyes betrayed in the arcade
Misdirection pervades, and my image fades of you (Where are you?)
Could we return to the hymn of the lake?
Grave refrains of impossible love
Not believing what they'd say
Haunting heralds whose words were lost on you (Where are you?)

I'd bare you my heart if I knew that it still was there (it still was there)
I'm too nervous to look (too nervous to look)
Too afraid to close the book
So take all the wind from my lungs if you're out of air (if you're out of air)
Just deliver me truth (deliver me truth)
Deliver me you

How'd we lose our place?
Who decided our fate; decay until we're erased?
Idly wasting away
Well, the nightmare's ending soon (Where are you?)

I'd bare you my heart if I knew that it still was there (it still was there)
I'm too nervous to look (too nervous to look)
Too afraid to close the book
So take all the wind from my lungs if you're out of air (if you're out of air)
Just deliver me truth (deliver me truth)
I'll deliver me you

(Who are you waiting for?)
(Who are you waiting for?)

If the younger me just could have seen the trouble I'd create, he'd never have agreed to carry on (Who are you waiting for?)
When sins of sons to fathers come, too heavy is the weight; the spirit split in two

Dear apparition, in this fleeting flash
Must I burn the earth before you turn to ash?
Would such extremes repair our broken past?
The silver lining seldom lies in sight too plain to see, but trust our story's end can bring redemption for the pain endured
