We're losing daylight but i can't work any faster
Under the veil of dusk we go on
Don't close your eyes
What if it all disappears in the shadows
That reach from the stars?

If i held my ground would you ask me to change?
This drought bleeds on and we're dancing for rain
We drink the air but it's still not the same

These worlds collide but the distance remains
We point the finger never accepting the blame
And i know. and i know

The waters gone but the fire still rages on here
The men all shrugged their shoulders and left
We sleep so sound in rooms just up the stairs
Will you save us like you saved them?

If i held my ground would you ask me to change?
This drought bleeds on and we're dancing for rain
We drink the air but it's still not the same

These worlds collide but the distance remains
We point the finger never accept the blame
And i know. and i know

You've bled me dry but im still breathing
I swear im sucking dry the sky
You wont ever find us kneeling
Or swallowing your lies

If i held my ground would you ask me to change?
This drought bleeds on and we're dancing for rain
We drink the air but it's still not the same

These worlds collide but the distance remains
We point the finger never accept the blame
And i know. and i know

    we work for what we believe in all our lives in fear that it can be taken from us by "shadows that reach for the stars". in other words, by "progressive" people who will take away others work to fulfill thier own.
    we're asked to change for ideas we don't belive in and the people who keep us from our own are slowly depleting our life source so that they can overcome us easily while in 'equality' people are just too self centered to realize that they arent the only ones with ideas, or for that case the only ones without faults.
    meanwhile, the few people who help others only assist those they first see whereas the people who need it more are "just up the stairs", but they were ignored.
    the power hungry people feed us lies disguised with ambition in order for us to listen to them and accomplish thier goals and not our own
