Lyrics

Cold Cold ashes on the ground Nothing lost and nothing found Friends and loved ones falling down Can't you hear that mournful sound Nothing left but memories Of things I still can't stand to see There's an empty spot in me Where my hometown used to be This old boat is taking water It won't be long till it goes down We've had enough to push us over Time to turn the wheel around Neighborhoods Left to decay People died or walked away Nowhere left for them to stay And we just look the other way This old boat is taking water It won't be long till it goes down We've had enough to push us over Time to turn the wheel around Waves keep pounding through the night Lost without a ray of light Going down without a fight Is there still time to make it right? This old boat is taking water It won't be long till it goes down We've had enough to push us over Time to turn the wheel around
