lyrics

Insecurity signs
Line the streets below
Pill-poppers take their holidays
In places nobody knows.
What has the world become?
Where are we headed lately?
No noble achievements.
Carefully mistaken.

Hear me, maybe there is more to this than you’ve been told.
Hear me, when I remind you of the myth; I thought you’d know.
Whether there is something other than this life’s not set in stone.
Where you land at the end of it, there you’ll stand alone.
Standing. Standing. Standing alone.
Standing. Standing. Standing alone.

Space to hide away
The feelings we never show.
Is there anything in the face
Of a passerby but stone?
The game is one on one
Climbing up that ladder.
The fat cat’s got that gun,
And everything that matters.

Hear me, maybe there is more to this than you’ve been told.
Hear me, when I remind you of the myth; I thought you’d know.
Whether there is something other than this life’s not set in stone.
Where you land at the end of it, there you’ll stand alone.
Standing. Standing. Standing alone.
Standing. Standing. Standing alone.

Maybe you are fine.
Maybe you feel so.
Maybe there are many things
You don’t really know.
What of the world to come
Along that narrow road?
Time and tide inviting,
Every ebb and flow.

Hear me, maybe there is more to this than you’ve been told.
Hear me, when I remind you of the myth; I thought you’d know.
Whether there is something other than this life’s not set in stone.
Where you land at the end of it, there you’ll stand alone.
Standing. Standing. Standing alone.
Standing. Standing. Standing alone.
