lyrics

We are standing upon a fallen tree.
Forget about nature, your gods are gasoline and electricity.
Your artificial light illuminates your life
as counterfeit as your heart.

But soon will come a day when you'll see the world for what it is

I'm not the kind of man who stares straight through these empty faces on the wall.
They all have a story to tell.
Am I the only one who's watching what's being done to our home?
Feels like I'm all alone.

And it's the feeling that I get when I look into your eyes.
Wandering through life without any surprises.
So much time so wasted.
If only you'd believe

That soon will come a day when you'll see me for who I am.

I'm not the kind of man who stares straight through these empty faces on the wall.
They all have a story to tell.
Am I the only one who's watching what's being done to our home?
Feels like I'm all alone.

And every time I turn around, there are so many faces that I've found
searching for nothing.
But if you just open your eyes, bring the world back down to size you'll find

I'm not the kind of man who stares straight through these empty faces on the wall.
They all have a story.

I'm not the kind of man who stares straight through these empty faces on the wall.
They all have a story to tell.
Am I the only one who's watching what's being done to our home?
Feels like I'm all alone.
