And all these things that we tie together
Keep unraveling apart
And the light that used to burn so bright
Now is dark

With anger-laced intent we set fire
To the bridges that remain
And they're wading thru the current now

Drown in the flood of the tears
That have been wept
And i scream to the sky
"no, you are not alone...?"

If you think that your words will ever make a difference
Think again and carry on
Because the weight behind the hand that holds us is strong
But there is hope in the roar of a thousand pleading cries
And all these things that we tie together

The sound of their tongues being bitten
Is all I hear
As we fire at the whites of their eyes,
Dance on ashes of the world

As they drown in the flood of the tears
That have been wept
And their tongues being bitten
Is all that I can hear
As I scream to the sky
"I need you now..."

Can you feel this truth now unraveling?
Or will you chase the burning sun
Into the sea
