It seems like it's so long ago that childhood thoughts and water flowed so free
Never to return again
Now the kids are grown and building dams to redirect the energy
And I don't understand it

To wake up feeling like this
Remembering dreams in my head
This doesn't happen often
Everything's so complicated

Do I want it?
Do I need it?
Do I even know where I should be?
Do I want it?
Do I need it?
Could I even stop this from happening?

Every star that burns bright in the sky will grant a wish to those who
Feel the darkness that surrounds it
And if ever I had wanted something, truth would be the dream I would make real
But I can't handle it

To wake up feeling like this
Remembering dreams in my head
This doesn't happen often
I woke up felling like this
Trying to understand it
I wake up cold and frightened
This doesn't happen often
Everything's so complicated

    General CommentI've been a huge fan of Breach of Trust since the beginning, I think this song is just about how certain things in life are complicated and that you cannot stop change. I have yet to talk to Marty Ballentyne about his lyrics, but I'll find out the true meaning someday
