lyrics

My life means nothing compared to yours,
Brushing off, the warnings of calamity.
While smoke moves, under your brother’s door,
Reflecting in a mirror on a vanity
Do you know the eye that’s staring down,
I feel it on my face.
Who can lift a day that’s fallen now,
Can you bear the weight?

This started as a daydream, it ended like a nightmare.
What started as a daydream, faces me like a nightmare.
And I guess it’s something I could never, understand.
It’s something I could never understand.

Our time moves slowly compared to yours,
Looking up in a century there’s nothing more.
Don’t have a home, but at least you a family
I have both, but I don’t know what it means to me.
Do you know the eye that’s staring down,
I feel it on my face.
Who can lift a day that’s fallen now,
Can you bear the weight?

This started like a daydream, it ended like a nightmare.
What started as a daydream, faces me like a nightmare.

I don’t even have to ask anymore, I won’t even have to say a word,
And I wonder out loud, how the silence sounds now.

And I guess it’s something I could never, understand
It’s something I could never, understand.

In my opinion, you’ll never grow older. Do you have plans to move to the ice?
Frozen in your perpetual gold youth, some say I’ve bitten off more than I can chew.
Do I, always forget you? Why do I, always forget you?
