Lyrics

Would you listen when the wind decides to whisper English fate? Will you heed the words within the winds that whisper "it's too late"? Will you see the reasons falling from the sky? Or the locusts screaming madly as you turn around and die? Could you recognize some message to relate Have you felt the atmospheric friction churning up above All the traits and the descriptions seem to fit just like a glove Can you see us scratching backwards through the seams Crawling circles on our backs with our dumbfounded expertise Just the thought of this is riddled with disease Can you see her moving slowly to the rhythm of the song? Would you like to tag along with us? I know it won't be long Could she take us back to somewhere you desire? Could she lead us to the doorway? Would you sit down by the fire and Would your eyes be sealed with love instead of hate? Can you hear the empty chambers of your head begin to spin, Leaving nothing but a cavity for all the living skin? Would you settle for the empty space within Or just kick and scream for something else to carry your thoughts in One foot before the other, lets begin Have you grown without a doubt or have you always wondered why? Does this morning rush intrusively to flash your waking eyes Do you take it in or leave it as it lay? Would you give a nod to life before returning to the clay? Could you think about tomorrow like today? Her eyes are open She's always hoping We can turn this old familiar nightmare into a song The sun keeps burning The world keeps turning She's reaching out and teaching love until the doubt is gone Do you listen for the echo of your long forgotten dream? You should listen for the echo of your long forgotten dream.
