We tempt fate.
We dance on the edge of ours graves.
We trade our hearts for shallowness.
We are the betrayed.
Broken promises and abandoned dreams, line these streets.
We risk it all just to feel alive,
in line we march with closed eyes.
Being taken for granted is all we've ever known.
A blind eye is all they've ever shown.
All they've ever shown us.
Their misery won't settle into my bones,
in the coldest winter I will live to know.
Distance will set you apart.
Apathy will never break my heart.
When will we wake, and chase these fading dreams?
I wrote this song, for anyone who ever dared to dream,
for those who follow their hearts.
When will we learn, that strength comes from pain?
When will we see,
these ruts become our graves.
Their blind ways won't break me.
When my heart is what guides me.
Wake up from this dreamless sleep.
Open your eyes and find your feet.
Dreams do come true.
