lyrics

How many lives will it take to realize
All who are lost to fear were never so near?
Our minds have the strength, our hearts can’t hold on
All that we’ve known has been questioned
We’ve no where to go.
Help us.
Trials of hardships, burning passions
Escaping grips of desperation
Woe is he whose line proves sessile
For it feels so good to be beating
7 billion souls cry out in empathy:
A thread woven between lives;
A beauty hidden behind the eyes.
(Cry out) to deafened masses; we
(Shout out) with fruitless efforts; we
(Seek out) such hopeless causes; we
(Scream out) with tired voices.
Our tired voices beg to be heard
They are so tired.
It’s a waste. I hope it’s not a waste.
Hands pressed firm with silent voices
Pleas fall short of higher forces
Incidents lead to torrents of perspective
Why did they all have to go?
7 billion souls cry out in empathy:
A thread woven between lives;
A beauty hidden behind the eyes.
(Cry out) to deafened masses; we
(Shout out) with fruitless efforts; we
(Seek out) such hopeless causes; we
(Scream out) with tired voices.
Our tired voices beg to be heard
They are so tired.
It’s a waste. I hope it’s not a waste.
One day I hope to see the other human beings
Burn inside and plainly see
Their crutches will never become their savior
Agony can cripple the strongest too
Defeated hearts I’d never known before
The weight of living can crush so much more.
If I did not know, I would say that I’d been here before
An opening that leads to a window unseen
Peering past the pane
Wishing it all would flood away
Many pump hope throughout
A viscous yearning to be rid of doubt
Gone unanswered, their questions are a welcomed burden.
And now I see that these questions were never meant for me.
