lyrics

Your little child has opened her mouth for the first time
What a window into the humanity of souls
The first thing that she does is cry
And, boy, the sound is starting to get old
Your little child has spoken her first full sentence
You find her question intelligent but odd
She simply asks why does everything die
If you knew that baby girl then you’d be God

We forget to make amends
Odds are never in favor
We will sell out our best friends
For a lukewarm promise from a stranger

She grew up learning how to be so selfless
But she forgets that we all have to try
The goodness is a skill that we’ve acquired
But the evil is still lurking deep inside
So cast your heavy burden on the sidewalk
Take a break to let off a little steam
It’s gonna be exhausting finding yourself
And you know the weakest cuts can still bleed

No one asks for directions it’s the blind leading the blind
Your shame won’t let you get ahead cause you feel so far behind
It’s not easy to rest your feet when you’re traveling on broken streets
They say demons are just missteps on the roads
And for some time now that old promise has been getting cold
And for some time now that old promise has been getting cold
And for some time now that old promise has been getting cold
And for some time now
Some time now
