lyrics

Say goodbye everyone
and we're gone away from here, at last.
we've nothing left to say, nothing left to hold us back.
everything you've ever wanted just outside your grasp

we could hide and wait

These are days we never thought would pass
Cities burn and fill the sky with glass
are we all victims of our own circumstance
or is it something else? there's something else. there's something else

you know it's
never easy letting go of all the things
in your life which seem to matter most
but if you let the fire out there is no choice
and no one cares and no ones left to hear your voice.

we could hide and wait

run for cover, give me shelter, hide me from the world
the clouds on the horizon shape the face of mars
secret windows, hide the sky i feel like a prisoner in life
but underground oh underground it's always warm and bright

they say it's
never easy letting go of all the things
in your life which seem to matter most
but if you let the fire out there is no choice
and no one cares and no ones left to hear your voice.

we could hide and wait
