They're looking with their eyes but they don't see me
They're trying anything to understand
Search the world for something worth believing
Stow their lives away in castles of sand

They have ears to hear but they're not listening
Talk is cheap it's something I can't stand
Begging for a change, but saving nothing
They can't see why everything in their hands
Just fades away

Hey hey hey
Take it easy
This is just
Temporary
Dust once we were
To dust we will return

They all play their parts but know it's so fake
In their heart they start to compromise
Racing for meaning or an escape
They fold their arms and nail themselves inside
A shallow grave

Hey hey hey
Take it easy
This is just
Temporary
Dust once we were
To dust we will return

And on this very night
You will see what it's like
To return to ashes
Lose yourself in all that's left of you

You've become the sum of what you own.

Hey hey hey
Take it easy
This is just
Temporary
Dust once we were
To dust we will return
