Time after time we
Walk pass the window
But never see the ashes on the ground

Night after night
Watching the sky move
Never feel the earth spinning 'round

I didn't see you fallin'
I couldn't hear you callin'
Born with eyes wide open never learn to see

I never ment to hurt you
Was right there crying with you
Why do we harm the only thing we want to be

Trying to follow
Every footstep
I feel so lost along the way

Reading the scripture
Straight from the gospel
Never understanding what they say

I didn't see you fallin'
I never heard you' callin'
I've got my eyes wide open
But haven't learned to see

Yeah

I never ment to hurt you
Was right there crying with you
Why do we harm the only thing we want to be

I just gotta be
Me
I just gotta be
Me

Yeah

[GUITAR SOLO]

I didn't see you fallin'
I never heard you callin'
I've got my eyes wide open but never learned to see

I never ment to hurt you
Was right there crying with you
We only cage the very thing we want to free

I just wanna be
I just gotta be

I just gotta be me
I wanna be

Yeah

[Screams]
