One child stood before the altar.
One child stood out in the rain.
One child spent his time imagining.
And I don't believe he's coming home again, home again, home a...

Right there in the earth, I've been drawing a line.
I'm digging it deep, don't know if I'll find
A tunnel out so we all can be saved.
If not, just take this earth and bury me, for this will be my grave.

One child hid inside the darkness.
One child never said a thing.
One child closed his eyes and disappeared.
But at night I still can hear him whispering, whispering, whisper...

Right there in the earth, I've been drawing a line.
I'm digging it deep, don't know if I'll find
A tunnel out so we all can be saved.
If not, just take this earth and bury me, for this will be my grave.

I will believe in you
If you still want me to
Or tell me I'm on my own.
There on the other side
Tell me the pilot's died
And we're no longer alone.

Take your answers and your promises, believe me I don't care.
I have held on to your words until I found them only air.
What good are your promises if you can always take them back?
Still, I hang on every word till my hands are bleeding.

I will believe in you
If you still want me to
Or tell me I'm on my own.
There on the other side
Tell me the pilot's died
And we're no longer alone.

I will believe in you (We had no choice but to stay and follow.)
If you still want me to (We have nothing left except tomorrow.)
Or tell me I'm on my own. (We have nothing left except what will be.)
There on the other side (What we need here are some real decisions,)
Tell me the pilot's died (While you only offer mindless visions,)
And we're no longer alone.(Visions that nobody else here can see.)

I will believe in you (We're on our own.)
If you still want me to
Or tell me I'm on my own. (We're on our own.)
There on the other side (We're on our own.)
Tell me the pilot's died
And we're no longer alone.(We're on our own.)

I will believe in you
If you still want me to
Or tell me I'm on my own.
There on the other side
Tell me the pilot's died
And we're no longer a...

Right there in the earth, I've been drawing a line.
I'm digging it deep, don't know if I'll find
A tunnel out so we all can be saved
If not, just take this earth and bury me, for this will be my grave.
