lyrics

He said, 'yesterday's a memory that's fading, as each grain of sand slips through the hour glass.
Withering away the sharpest edges carved in granite and passion fades with compromise.

Our aspiration brings us to the peaks of towers,
And we claim our humble piece of cluttered sky.
Till this stream of consciousness against which we've been swimming.
Sweeps us away for the last time.

And someday I will leave without a sound.
I'm taking nothing with me to the ground.

Oh can't you see my nightmares coming true?
As we get lost among the mazes just looking for a better view.
And now the lines once defined all become a blur
So we keep shuffling our feet till we collide.

Cause it's two steps forward and one step back to discover all the things we lack,
Frankly, I'm tired of playing by somebody else's rules.
Oh and we're hard pressed to close the gaps between dotted lines engraved on maps and what
we have to gain becomes the truth.

And now this ice on which we tread gets temperamental, closer to the warmth of coming spring,
Yet it satiates the urge we have to lose some control,
And brings us close enough to death to feel alive.

And someday i will leave without a sound.
I'm taking nothing with me to the ground.

So we prance around this masqueraders ball,
We argue with our magic mirrors 'bout who's the fairest of them all.
There's no sickness equal to the pill of apathy,
And how can we love if we've got something left to prove?

So then he raised his glass and he said, 'here's to you. And here's to all the expectations that
we've yet to live up to.
You can live your life in fear of what they say,
But I sure as he'll don't hate what I've become.

I'm an old man, I'm a worn man.
An all the pieces of my heart have come unglued.
here at the Gatling gun revival,
We only hope for our survival
And thats Ok cos we got nothing left to lose.

We're most dangerous when we've nothing left to lose.
