lyrics

Lyrics:

We can’t stay here much longer
The world outgrows our home
Soon we’ll have to wander
Or find ourselves alone

It’s time for us to leave
A safer place to be
All that matters to me
Is we’ll be complete

Our grass will soon be golden
Our castle built of glass
We’ll walk until we’re broken
The hardest thing to ask

It’s time for us to leave
Embrace bureaucracy
All that matters to me
Is we’ll be complete

Wrapped in concrete
I feel small
The street might never spit me out again

Silver watches
Worth more than lives
Where beggars walk with businessmen

Endlessly
We try to leave
The foundation
The foundation

The canopy
We climb to reach
Our foundation
Our foundation

I see your hunger
You feel lost
The choking veins we walk are not for you

But I can help you
I know the ropes
Leave behind your guilt to break through

Endlessly
We try to leave
The foundation
The foundation

The canopy
We climb to reach
Our foundation
Our foundation

I’m late I need to leave
The mediocrity
This deal means all to me
Why can’t you see

It’s all over
They have burned it all down
I can’t find you among all this ash
I’ve crawled through

And you
Tried to save me
Addiction I can’t see

The canopy I climbed for has
Caused my downfall

The Avarice has died
After all

Then I found you alone here
The softest fall from grace
Skin all burned off and broken
The pain carved into your face

It’s not your time to leave
I always was complete
You’re all that mattered to me
I couldn’t see

Every year that you waited
Was another one I threw away
The watch left in the cinders
Still counting down to that day

Now we reel in the moment
losing each second we spend
Strength in your eyes falls inwards
Winding its way to the end

It’s not your time to leave
Forget what we should be
You’re all that matters to me
Please don’t leave
