Standing on the edge of forever
At the start of whatever
Shouting love at the world
Back then, we were like cavemen
We'd beam at the moon and the stars
Then we forgave them

We will meet you where the lights are
The defenders of the faith, we are
Where the thunder turns around they'll run so hard we'll tear the ground away

You know no one dies
In these love drowned eyes
Through our love drowned eyes
We'll watch you sleep tonight

Although no one understood
We were holding back the flood
Learning how to dance the rain
We were holding back the flood
They said we'd never dance again

Breathing
But none of us leaving
Wash your mouth son,
Or you'll find yourself floatin' home
Here we come now, on a dark star
Seeing demons not what we are
Tiny minds and eager hands will try to strike but now we'll last the day

There's progess now
Where there once was not
Where there once was not
Then everything came along

Although no one understood
We were holding back the flood
Learning how to dance the rain
There was more of them than us
Now they'll never dance again

Although no one understood
There was more of them than us
Learning how to dance the rain
We were holding back the flood
They said we'd never dance again

We will meet you,
Where the lights are
The defendants of the faith we are
When the thunder turns around we'll run so hard well tear the ground away

Although no one understood
We were holding back the flood
Learning how to dance the rain
There was more of them than us
Now they'll never dance again
Now we'll never dance again

    I know it may sound stupid but this song sounds like they are soldiers in a war... Especially the 'never dance again but' just read through the lyrics and maybe you will see it too x
