lyrics

Sewn eyes and senses
to desensitize this journey
a transition of discerning
what is good to what is green
and I'm not superstitious
but I had this premonition
I was walking through a garden
where the trees could not grow leaves

The poison was in a chalice that fell to the soil
It sunk in and every ocean in the world start to boil
I thought that this had to be a bad dream
But not so lucky it seems
I was just waking up
A whole herd without faces; a flock without wings
No one saw, they were more concerned with the finer things
As time passes, these rose coloured glasses
fall away from me and allow me to see that we

Carry the weight of all our greed
when some of the best things in our lives
always were and will be free
save me from the rain
'cause I don't need your sympathy
I'm doing the best with what was left for me
'cause I'll remain
awake and dreaming

Disguise the truth
defend the suits
citizens to consumers
we watch, but don't care for you

The best dream for me would probably be a nightmare for you
So close your eyes and keep pretending that you can't see the truth
I thought that this had to be a bad dream
But not so lucky it seems
I was just waking up
A whole herd without faces; a flock without wings
No one saw, they were more concerned with the finer things
As time passes, these rose coloured glasses
fall away from me and allow me to see that we

Carry the weight of all our greed
when some of the best things in our lives
always were and will be free
save me from the rain
'cause I don't need your sympathy
I'm doing the best with what was left for me
'cause I'll remain
awake and dreaming
