I'll change my mind and it will give me life cause I know in time that light will shine upon my eyes A remedy left inside of me the truths locked inside my mind for the words, I cannot find (Chorus) It's all about the way we live our lives with the pain we keep inside. like a trudge through the marsh we heal all our scars for the day that we'll open up We search for light but it all takes time sometimes it's like this never ends but time itself allows these things to mend
Captured by a whisper I see you standing there You’re just another omen For all those who care in life (Chorus) I feel that you know that I'm here Falling away, just you wait To not fear the pending dark Is to walk among the infinite We can face the endless fight we can take it all if we embrace the night
And I found some blessings from this ground in the days we lost I never found a way a way to trust a way to love a way for all our pain to go away (Chorus) Just give me Better answers to this Give me the strength to hold the weight Better answers to this [Here we go again] And I've found some comfort in the sound of those things those things that I have missed but they don't show me love and they don't give me trust and they can't make all our pain to go away
When the Sun Begins to fade we reach out to the moon to feel our shadows weight to understand its truth (Chorus) It’s all a point of view that/how we sell to ourselves Its formed by what we do And not how they felt Just a shimmer within the dark I see you breaking free The light of our spark Reaching out for me
Someday, you'll know that you'll be fine Just never let them hold their light upon the stone that never shines that never made you whole in time or finds another way to make to make this all a better place you gotta let it go if they don't let you know Oh it's nice to play pretend until you get us to the end let's just focus on the now Yes, but I've spent time inside that place and I know there's a better way you can't solve what you don't face if you don't fight it, you will stay (Chorus) [and] I've been over waiting for you now [waiting for you] this heart's been fading since the light burned out [waiting for you] give me peace on earth and let me know we'll find another way to go cause I've been over waiting for you now (now) (give me peace) (give me light) (give me all the love I'll find)
Time a true illusion the keeper of all things filled with these deceptions but hope it brings My heart became an anchor when I decided to savor All those little memories and pieces in these halls My mind began to bend and my thoughts would stall But how can I save you from what it is that made you (Chorus) This place we are This place we are I'll hold your heart Close to the stars My mind, in its delusion goes deeper with each step my fists were shaking as I try to hold my breath And you continue to favor this thoughtless life as they labor For all those little memories and pieces in these halls were made for us in a life we never saw But we can fight for a new view with better actions, we can choose
One step, forward To leave it all behind To see my world rewind Tied up, restless I feel the knots in my chest are breaking all the folds in time (Chorus) But in a way we could feel a little sober now from the pain we stood It's all been wrapped somehow [Where are you now] Perception I find A catalyst in the mind Dissolving thoughts that can leave you blind This world I choose a new life a new use A new way to make it through
I found a way a way to change your heart, your mind, your... Faded Sun I found a way to make things change we've made mistakes but kept the blame as we both face (Chorus) The faded sun Can you look away from the faded sun I found a note, it told me where to go but I don't know if it leads back home So I will stay and make a place to make my own and call it home
