We believe there's something here worth dying for.
Uniforms are old but we'll still try some more.
I'd probably be wrong if I was right.
The breeze (it sees?) from all considerations.
Turmoil stands like old rubberbands unbreaking.
And anything worth mentioning need not be too polite.
We won't mind.

I've seen
Much bigger, more than me.
Your will
Be done.
I'm not the only one.
The task
It seems
A backwards path
When things are said in context
Big enough to wrap in boxes
The things we'd say
Aren't easy to replace
Be brief if you're unsure
That's much braver than before.

So what's your point?
Who's the next you will annoint.
There's nowhere to transcend to
If we've got no ears to lend you.

I hate to say it.
You're no replacement.
Excuse you cannot buy.
Seems so aimless
Too short and painless.
The truth you cannot hide.
The trouble measures
There's something better
There's one more word to try.
I hate to say it.
You're no replacement.
I'm never good at lies.
Never good with lies. (4x)

Had you thought about it?
Could you live without it?
'Cause it's all about you in the end.

And it's so elaborate
(And it's all around you)
But you never had her
(But she turned around on you)
And you cannot grab it if you try.
